3-D Printed Food That Melts In Your Mouth

3-D Printed Food That Melts In Your Mouth | COOL 3DPRINTING | Scoop.it



It looks like a sausage. It is a sausage. But what's that? It's really a pureed sausage goo, printed back into a sausage-like shape. 

A food company in Germany is working on a way of 3-D printing almost any food. In a few years time, you'll be able to take a carrot, puree it, then print it back into something like its original shape. But why, you might be asking. What's wrong with the original?


The answer is that a lot of people can't eat normal food, because of swallowing or chewing problems. Millions of elderly suffer from dysphagia, for example, which causes food to stick in the throat, or in the worst case, go right into the lungs. 3-D printed food potentially offers an alternative to current fare, which is basically thickened paste.
