Providing personalised nutrition using 3D food printing technology looks set to be a growing sector according to market research.
Targeted at the elderly or even sportsmen, such personalisation of nutrition can help modulate gut microbiome or enhance supplementation with paste enriched with fibre, protein, probiotic or prebiotic.
Exhibiting this 3D food printer at the Specialty & Fine Food Asia (SFFA) exhibition was Anirudh Agarwal – a SCELSE research engineer.
Supported by SNBC and its industry partner DSM, this passionate mechanical engineer demonstrated the printing of fibre-rich paste using the 3D printing machine fabricated with the support of NTU and the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster (NAMIC).
But this machine is just a means to an end. His supervisor, Prof Patricia Conway, explains: “My research in NTU is about modulating the gut microbiome. We have lots of microbes in our intestines and the state of these microbes influence our health and wellbeing. My work looks at developing functional foods that benefit these microbes. Together with the Singapore Centre for 3D Printing at NTU, we aim to harness 3D food printing technologies that not only allows us to offer precision-controlled composition, but also provides visual appeal and good texture to consumers.”
Held at Suntec Singapore on June 22-24 2022, this exhibit at SFFA – Southeast Asia’s Leading trade show for gourmet food and drinks – was a great success based on the queries from companies keen on collaboration.
