This innovative solution should reproduce modified food texture in their original form using a 3D food printer.
Printing food in 3D
The 3D printer is developed under the PERFORMANCE project together with industrial, academic and research institutes. The project is funded to the tune of 3 billion euros.
The 3D printer should allow to print the modified food by giving them different shapes texture. Each printer cartridge will contain a different food, vegetables, meat, carbohydrates, in liquid form.
With the addition of a binder (under development), the printer agent will deposit the material in layers to replenish food in a given shape through a 48 printhead nozzles. The final result will allow seniors to have meals with appetizing texture.
