3D printing of food

Project team: Gael Delamare
Member funded research project
Running: Sep 2018 - Sep 2019
Project Number: 146283


3D printing/additive manufacturing is a rapidly growing technology, already widespread for customised, small scale manufacturing and prototyping of engineering components. New printers are now becoming available and can be used for various types of food materials. These food materials are typically paste-type materials which include chocolate, vegetable and meat purees, pancake batter, cream, cakes, and biscuits. The technology is capable of manufacturing product structures not achievable with conventional technology. This project will evaluate 3D printing to assess its potential, and limitations, for the food industry. It will also explore potential new capabilities of the technology.
