Advancing frontiers in personalised foods for seniors through nanotechnology and 3D printing aiming enhanced nutrition and superior flavor

Project description

Printing personalised food for the elderly

Healthy aging requires healthy eating habits, but older adults are vulnerable to malnutrition. This is mainly due to decreased appetite, dental problems, psychosocial issues and chronic disease. Early detection of malnutrition allows for a timely intervention. The EU-funded 3D-NANOFOOD project will assist by manufacturing personalised foods with superior nutrition. To do so, it will exploit 3D printing for fast food manufacturing and flexibility. The project will use nanostructured delivery systems for protecting and enhancing the performance of functional compounds. It will evaluate the quality and functionality of the new foods, as well as create an industrial protocol for printed foods manufacturing.
