Texture control and modulation of 3D food assemblies: bubble distributions for altering the deformation behavior

For the production of highly customized and reproducible food textures, 3D printing presents a novel texturing approach due to its high accuracy and precision. Assembling of food foam structures using periodic and repetitive closed-cell bubble configurations presents a new approach for obtaining pre-designed textural properties. For printing food structures with specific textural properties, a phenomenological model was developed where the material and foam parameters can be autonomously determined according to the desired hardness levels.

3D Printing With Living Organisms “Could Transform The Food Industry” (VIDEO)

Dezeen and MINI Frontiers: food designer Chloé Rutzerveld has developed a concept for “healthy and sustainable” 3D-printed snacks that sprout plants and mushrooms for flavour. Rutzerveld’s Edible Growth project consists of 3D-printed shapes containing a mixture of seeds, spores and yeast, which will start to grow after only a few days.
