Restaurants will serve food, printed on a 3D printer

It’s delicious, but the sight of such strange dishes.


In the near future restaurants of Barcelona will offer visitors the steaks and chicken, printed on a 3D printer.

Such dishes designed especially for vegetarians, because of their type of protein powder from rice or peas with the addition of marine algae. A special syringe filled with some kind of yellowish paste and inserted into a 3D printer.

New software helps the machine to form this paste fiber as in natural meat. The result is a quite tasty dish that is similar in structure to the steak. That’s just the appearance of such food is far from ideal, admits the inventor from Milan, Giuseppe Scionti, which was invented to print the vegetarian steaks. In the near future he intends to find a way to give printed dishes look mouth-watering.

On his 3D printer Scionti worked at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia in Barcelona. When the experiment was a success, he appealed to restaurants in the city. Chefs, as told by the inventor, was interested in a dish that looks like steak but tastes like mushrooms.

Scionti says he did not intend to mimic the taste of animal protein, it is learned to do without it. The Italian is more interested to improve the fiber structure printed “meat”. It will take more time and investment, told Scionti Spanish newspaper El Pais.

Such developments, according to the researcher, will help in future to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. According to the world Bank Group in 2009, the livestock and the products of this industry are causes annual emissions of more than 32 billion tons of greenhouse gases, accounting for about 51% of all emissions on the planet.
