Texture control and modulation of 3D food assemblies: bubble distributions for altering the deformation behavior

For the production of highly customized and reproducible food textures, 3D printing presents a novel texturing approach due to its high accuracy and precision. Assembling of food foam structures using periodic and repetitive closed-cell bubble configurations presents a new approach for obtaining pre-designed textural properties. For printing food structures with specific textural properties, a phenomenological model was developed where the material and foam parameters can be autonomously determined according to the desired hardness levels.
