In short, yes we can really 3D print food. Experiments with extruders for 3D printing food substance has increased dramatically over the last couple of years. Chocolate is the most common (and desirable). There are also printers that work with sugar and some experiments with pasta and meat. Looking to the future, research is being undertaken, to utilize 3D printing technology to produce finely balanced whole meals. Here are five interesting ways the precision of 3-D printers can be used to make foods:

1. Wedding cake toppers

2. Food that’s easy to swallow, but looks good

3. Customized nutrition

4. Sustainable foods

5. Cocktail garnishes
