New Developments in 3D Printing Food

The “Foodini,” as it’s called, isn’t too different from a regular 3D printer, but instead of printing with plastics, it deploys edible ingredients squeezed out of stainless steel capsules.

Researchers are working on ways to use 3D printing to produce food. Currently, most work is being done in chocolate and sugar but the innovation foreshadows great things for the future of food production. Food created from a 3D printer can be used for things such as wedding cake toppers, easily chewable and customized nutrition, sustainable foods and cocktail garnishes. This is just the beginning of what 3D printed food can become as time passes!
