3D printed 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 mastification 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.

(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.

Scalable and fast

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.

Even more so, the system is very suitable for scaling. So you do not have to worry if business takes off.
