Just a fun tid-bit for the day! Researchers in Germany are developing 3-D printed food specially designed to look and taste great while having the ability to melt in the mouth and slide down the throat for dysphagia patients.
While the technology isn't ready for market just yet, I was stunned at the concept of 3-D printers having the capability to create something that we ingest, has nutrients, and feeds our cells and muscles and bones and brains. I guess with all of the food technology that exists in this world I shouldn't be so surprised! I am glad however it is being designed with the aging population in mind as many conditions can cause dysphagia (strokes, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, head and neck cancers, MS, among others).
Check out the article in Tech Crunch (link above). What food technology do you envision happening in the next 5 or 10 years that is likely to blow our minds?!
