Health & Personalized Nutrition

Foodini 3D food printer is a SMART, intelligent appliance designed for health from the beginning by always allowing users to fully control their own fresh ingredients from sweet to savory. Foodini also offers additional benefits for health and nutrition, including: ability to personalize nutrition (including adding supplements and medications), ability to precisely portion control, and offering new solutions for alternative proteins and vegan diets.

Our 3D food printer is already being used in hospitals to assist with clinical nutrition needs of patients, particularly those on consistency modified or dysphagia diets – and an endless array of nutritious, attractive meal designs can also be 3D food printed for pediatric use cases. Foodini is also used in universities for leading research on health and nutrition.

Rapid Prototyping & Research

Following the path of traditional 3D printers, 3D food printers are used to help companies conduct rapid prototyping and test product concepts. Additionally, as traditional 3D printer usage extended into unexpected and innovative uses, from actual manufacture of products to printing prosthetics and even printing with living tissues for organ replacement – so has the usage and application of 3D food printers.

3D food printers are now used for a variety of research, development and innovation projects from printing alternative proteins, molecular gastronomy, printing sushi, printing insects, sustainability initiatives, deep personalization as big data grows, and more.


3D food printing offers significant opportunities for reducing food waste and increasing sustainability for our planet, from making imperfect produce uglies look beautiful, to using and plating plant biomass not generally harvested, to recovering nutritious seafood by-catch and trimmings formerly considered waste and working with alternative proteins – from insect proteins to algae and other vegan options – in creative and appetizing new ways.

The benefits 3D food printing offers for food waste reduction and sustainability have only begun! Have an idea? Contact us. We would love to partner to save our planet and feed people.
