Using 3D Printing to Reduce the Amount of Sugar in Cookies…Without Making Them Inedible

Written by David

While it may sound great to sit around and eat cookies all day, the fact is that cookies aren’t particularly healthy because they’re chock full of sugar. But, partially because obesity rates have been increasing over the last few decades, people have been more focused on reducing sugar in tasty foods like cookies, or replacing it with something else altogether, like artificial sweeteners such as sucrose. But another trend has also emerged: that of ‘clean label products’ with few or no additives. Desserts could appeal to both trends if a product’s sweetness is increased in a different way, while its overall sucrose is reduced. Types of 3D food printing: A) Selective laser sintering, B) Inkjet printing, C) Binder jetting, D) Extrusion-based printing A fairly new way to prepare sweet treats like cookies is 3D printing. The technology makes it possible to create complex, reproducible 3D structures impossible to make […]
