“Campden BRI have begun a research project to evaluate how 3D printing could benefit the food industry.
3D printing of food is a rapidly growing technology and new 3D printers are now becoming available that can be used for various types of food materials. Paste-type foods, such as chocolate, purees and pastry can be formed into any shapes and structures using 3D printing technology. Campden BRI’s team are looking into every possibility to see what is capable of being rolled out into mass production.
Ingredient scientist, Gael Delamare, who is leading the team, said: “There have been major steps forward in 3D-printing in recent years and it has made a huge difference to many industries. However, applying the technology to the food sector isn’t straightforward. “
