Columbia University Researchers Invent Way
to Simultaneously 3D Print and Cook Food
3D printed food has been around for a while, but compared to other areas of 3D printing, it’s still relatively undeveloped. For the most part, 3D printed food consists of already-mixed ingredients being extruded into fun shapes. Chocolate is a popular medium, as are other foods that don’t need to be cooked afterwards. But a group of researchers from has created a machine that can both 3D print food and simultaneously cook it, opening up possibilities for a wider variety of 3D printed foods.
He expects that 3D printed laser-cooked foods will become commercially viable in the next five to 10 years.
