3D Printing Food and Biomimetic Human Tongue

In this week’s “From Academia”, we share with you three articles related to eating and food using 3D printing. The first article is an overview on 3D printing food and related applications. The second article focuses more specifically how to incorporate specific nutrient into foods using 3D printing. The final article uses 3D printed soft biomimetic surface that replicates the topography and wettability of a real human tongue to investigate how we interact with foods.

From Academia” features recent, relevant, close to commercialization academic publications. Subjects include but not limited to healthcare 3D printing, 3D bioprinting, and related emerging technologies.
