Scientists reported a novel 3D printing process to make fibre-enriched snacks from button mushrooms
Thanjavur-based Indian Institute of Food Processing Technology, (IIFPT) has taken a creative approach to snacks by churning out tasty and customizable 3D-printed snacks.
Of late, 3D printing which involves layer by layer fabrication of foods, has become popular due to the customizable nature of the foods
The institute has been developing 3D printing technologies using various types of foodgrains or alternative foods including millet, pulses, cereals, eggs, etc.
Recently, the scientists reported a novel 3D printing process to make fibre-enriched snacks from button mushrooms, a pioneering work in ‘printability’ of mushrooms.
