3D Printing Vegemite & Marmite: Redefining Breadboards – Presented by Charles Hamilton,University of Wollongong

3D Printing Vegemite & Marmite: Redefining Breadboards – Presented by Charles Hamilton,University of Wollongong at the 3D Foodprinting Conference Asia-Pacific Edition, 2 May 2017, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.

Food Layered Manufacturing (FLM) has been widely investigated for its potential to combat various issues in the food industry. For a food item to be FLM compatible, it must possess suitable rheological properties to allow for its extrusion and to keep its 3D printed structure. We present a rheological analysis of two commercially available breakfast spreads, Vegemite and Marmite, and show their compatibility with FLM in producing 3D structures and attractive food presentations onto toasted bread substrates. The inherent conductivity of the breakfast spreads was used to print edible circuits onto a “breadboard.” Continue reading “3D Printing Vegemite & Marmite: Redefining Breadboards – Presented by Charles Hamilton,University of Wollongong”
