Tasting 3d printed marzipan from Bocusini

Another 3d food printing adventure. This time we get to try 3d printed marzipan from Print2Taste and their Bocusini. Was great to meet the again at Fabcon 2016. This time we got our hands into some 3d printed marzipan samples to bring you a new tasting experience. Shaped in a really cute turtle form, this marzipan was for sure good. Sweet almond explosion, but without being to thick and overwhelming. I really enjoyed it! Sure I will try to get more for my self in the future ūüôā

PERFORMANCE Project Final Conference

Friday 16 OCT 2015 will be the final conference¬†in the 3 year long journey of the Performance Project. ¬†The Performance Project is a consortium of many groups, funded by a few countries in the EU to help people in assisted living homes who are battling with swallowing and masticating difficulties. ¬†They will also cover the ordering and logistics of the platform they’ve come up with to create a complete 3D food printing solution for these problems.

When I first heard about the Performance Project I was very excited and had to hear more.  Luckily the project was covered heavily at the 3D food printing conference by several of the participating organizations earlier in the year and we had a chance to talk with Pieter Debrauwer from TNO about it as well.

Performance Project Participants

There are many universities, research firms and companies involved in the project; here’s a short list:

We’ve met some of the people already and they definitely have the right people involved for this project. ¬†You’ll notice that Print2Taste and Melanie Senger will be there as well as they were involved in the project through the Hochschule Weihenstephan.

Video Overview

We’re really looking forward to going to the Performance Project Final Conference¬†and learning more about their research and¬†how they’ve solved the issues of logistics and specific nutrient content. ¬†I think anyone interested in #3DFP will be as well, can’t recommend it enough that you go and check it out.

It is too late to register to attend, but I’ll do my best live tweet-a-thon during the event and I’m hoping they’ll also records and release¬†most of the Performance Project presentations and if we’re lucky maybe there’ll be a live stream!

Thanks for reading and have a great day,

Jason
