Future Food

In 2016, the first pop-up restaurant for 3D printed food was opened under the name Food INK in London. 3D food printers are used, which produce layer by layer foods out of pastes, chocolates, noodles or sweets. In recent years, a new trend in event catering has developed. But the use of 3D food printers should also change our diet in the long term. First and foremost, scientists see the potential for providing food with personalized nutrient content in the medical field. In addition, 3D printing of foods with more sustainable caloric sources could be made possible by, for example, processing algae proteins instead of resource-intensive animal proteins.

At the invitation of KoelnMesse, Diana Drewes gave an overview of the possibilities of 3D food printers in her lecture on the stage of the FutureFoodstyles special area at LivingKitchen and discussed concepts for the future of nutrition.
