3D printing of food
Gael Delamare, Production and Processing Scientist
3D printing/additive manufacturing is a rapidly growing technology. 3D printers work by using software to create 3D shapes and printing ‘slices’ of the shapes one after another. Any paste-type materials such as meat purees, fruit and vegetable purees, biscuits, cakes, cream, pasta, chocolate and confectionery can be printed.
In this video, Gael Delamare, explains how a member funded research project will evaluate 3D printing to assess its potential for the food industry.
