3D food printing: carrot shapes
Why mash a vegetable and try to put it together with a 3D printer? Because it makes sense to people suffering from swallowing or mastication problems. What would you think of getting a shapeless lump of puree served on a daily basis? Have some imagination and enjoy more!
Looks like carrot, tastes like carrot
Studies show that people eat more of the same puree when it served in the original shape of the vegetable. If you print carrot puree in the shape of a carrot, it looks more appealing. This will make people eat more than if the same material is simply placed in a pile on a plate.
Luckily, this is exactly what our FoodJet depositors make possible. The depositor heads can be individually activated, which makes it possible to print material in any shape. For example, printing carrot puree in the shape of a carrot.
(Re-)create any shape
The FoodJet food depositing technology uses multi-layer techniques to create any shape you like. You use the FoodJet Designer Studio software to design the form and you let the depositor do the rest. With the multi-layer technique, the material can be printed in 3D.
Scalable and fast depositing systems
One of the major difference with common 3D food depositors, is the speed at which shapes can be created. FoodJet operates at industrial belt speeds and match regular food processing speeds. All of this while maintaining accurate and precise depositing.
Even more so, the system is very suitable for scaling. So you do not have to worry if business takes off. The depositors of FoodJet can be scaled based on your production needs.
