3D food printing – an emerging technology delivers novel insights in traditional food science

science

The traditional production of foods based on solid open-cell foams is highly complex. Thereby, a creation of a bulk phase of complex polymer-particle systems, partly the inflation and material-depended gas holding capacity and its final stabilization to the open-cell foam shows this complexity. All these parameters influence the cellular structure of the food and its functionality in terms of texture. This texture appears as a sensory property and a multi-parameter attribute. Additive manufacturing enables a complete redesign of such traditional food processes and enables especially in a scientific point of view entirely new possibilities for the understanding of the current production of foods.
