Towards personalized nutrition with 3D food printing

tno

Presented by Mathijs de Schipper, Research Scientist / Innovator at TNO.

3D Food Printing is a promising new technology that offers great possibilities for the creation of improved or new food products and an disruptive food supply chain. Ultimately, this technology may provide a decentralized food manufacturing for fully personalized food products.
This presentation will discuss the state of the art of foodprinting technology at TNO and WFBR (Wageningen Food & Biobased Research) and the use case of making personalized food for the Dutch Ministry of Defense.

Innovation in food and agriculture has come a long way in the past century, resulting in the production of more food than ever before. However, the food industry is facing new challenges due to rapid societal changes: in 2040 there will be 9 billion people to feed; there is an increasing demand for personalized, nutritious, and healthy food; and food production should be done in an affordable way without harming the environment. Radical innovations are required to meet the demands of the near future. 3D printing provides the food industry the opportunity to adapt and change their production processes.
