According to experts, 3D food printing has many advantages. To support their article in the journal Nature, they printed pieces of cake made from cookie crumbs, frosting, strawberry jam and other ingredients using food-grade edible ink. It was good, but the appearance still needs work, reports the TV channel. ORF .
The researchers also write about a “new taste experience” as flavors and textures can be localized down to the millimeter using 3D printing.
Scientists believe that one area for which 3D food printing is particularly well suited is the production of plant-based meat substitutes. Here, texture and flavor must be modeled with particular precision.
In addition, the technology allows a better adaptation of the diet. 3D printed foods make it easier for people to control the nutrient content of their meals. This can be useful for nutritionists in nursing homes as well as athletes when planning meals.
