Using a Texture Analyzer for 3D Printed Food

Apr 13, 2020  Example of how 3D printing food materials can be tested – Fracture Bending. Printed products such as chocolate may need to be tested in a similar way that they are assessed by a consumer. A typical example of this is breaking a bar of chocolate in half. This imitative test can be measured using a 3 point bend rig on a Texture Analyzer.

The Importance of Texture in 3D Printed Foods « Fabbaloo

Jan 14, 2020  The 3D printed food vision extolled by dreaming chefs is no where near reality. One of the many challenges to 3D printed food is texture. You might happen to have the right ingredients in proximity to each other in a food 3D print, but if the texture of the food is not “right” in your mouth, it’s a failure. In the Guardian’s story, they ...
