3D Food printing for better eating

by Antien Zuidberg, HAS Hogeschool

The presentation will be about the possible solution that 3D food printing can bring in caring homes and hospitals, for people who have dysfagia. Tests were done to see how the heating would effect the product after printing, and also effect of heating was tested on a moulded product versus a 3D food printed product.

After developing recipes and forms, a first test was performed during one week to find out how the person would react to 3D printed food and whether meals formed by 3D food printing could entice a test person to eat more food. We will share out findings so far, and further testing is planned for 2020.
