3D Food Printing

Can 3D Printing Help Us to Eat Healthier?

Bianca Botero-Murphy | January 28, 2016

Researchers and engineers envision 3D food printing as a way to make food healthier and sustainable for consumers.
What we once envisioned as the untouchable future is now our reality. Cars are parking themselves, hoverboards serve as alternatives to walking, drones are delivering personal packages, and now, machines are printing food.
3D printing is the futuristic manufacturing process that takes a digital model and makes it into a solid 3D object by creating and building upon layers of various compounds such as plastic, resin and even metals. 3D food printing works in the same way but instead of using aforementioned items, it uses consumable (and digestible) compounds to create products you can eat.
