A Review of 3D Food Printing Technology
School of Industrial Engineering, Institute of Engineering, Suranaree University of Technology, Thailand
The additive manufacturing technology has been applied to directly construct physical model from 3D model without mold and die. Several industries utilize this technology to manufacture a complicated part such as automobile, aerospace including food industry. The advantage 3D food printing are ability to produce complex food model and ability to design unique pattern. A 3D food printing technique is composed of an extrusion-based printing, binder jetting and inkjet printing. The food materials such as sugar, chocolate, and cheese are used to create designed shape based on layer-by-layer. This paper presents a review of 3D food printing techniques. This review is to categorize, printability, productivity, properties of material and mechanism of 3D food printing techniques, as well as to provide the direction of future development.
