The technique of 3D food printing offers solutions which weren’t possible before. During his presentation, Peter will give an insight into the technique itself, the results till today, outcome of several trials with care institutes as well as the upscaling to industrial level which is currently happening. Gastronology is driven by the enthusiasm that 3D food printing provides a solution for dysphagia patients (people who suffer from a chewing and swallowing disorder), as their food becomes recognizable, tasty and with a good smell, but can be eaten still with a spoon.
This replaces the traditional daily and untasty blended food. The response to the tested 3D printed vegetables are nearly unanimously positive. Come, and attend this presentation and become part of this journey!
