3D-printable plant protein-enriched scaffolds for cultivated meat development

Biomaterials 2022 Volume 284, Article 121487

Cultivated meat harnesses tissue engineering (TE) concepts to create sustainable, edible muscle tissues, for addressing the rising meat product demands and their global consequences. As 3D-printing is a promising method for creating thick and complex structures, two plant-protein-enriched scaffolding compositions were primarily assessed in our work as 3D-printable platforms for bovine satellite cells (BSC) maturation. Mixtures of pea protein isolate (PPI) and soy protein isolate (SPI) with RGD-modified alginate (Alginate(RGD)) were evaluated as prefabricated mold-based and 3D-printed scaffolds for BSC cultivation, and ultimately, as potential bioinks for cellular printing. Mold-based protein enriched scaffolds exhibited elevated stability and stiffness compared to…

Printability and cytotoxicity of alginate/agarose hydrogel with carboxylmethyl cellulose and apple powder

14th Biomedical Engineering International Conference (BMEiCON) 2022

The cultured meat is the solution to reduce resources using in a traditional meat production. It helps produce meat without killing livestock and decrease residue products. The method could also integrate with scaffold’s material which does not derive from animal products. This study aims to investigate the effects of carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) and apple powder on printability and cytotoxicity as additives in alginate/agarose-based hydrogel. 3D structures of them were printed to find a proper printing condition. From our experiments, the structure could maintain their shapes and uniform line sizes for carboxylmethyl cellulose, but not for apple powder at the 2%…

Edible meta-atoms

arXiv 2021 Condensed Matter > Soft Condensed Matter, Article 2103.14909

Metamaterials are artificial structures with unusual and superior properties that come from their carefully designed building blocks — also called meta-atoms. Metamaterials have permeated large swatches of science, including electromagnetics and mechanics. Although metamaterials hold the promise for realizing technological advances, their potential to enhance interactions between humans and materials has remained unexplored. Here, we devise meta-atoms with tailored fracture properties to control mouthfeel sensory experience. Using chocolate as a model material, we first use meta-atoms to control the fracture anisotropy and the number of cracks and demonstrate that these properties are captured in mouthfeel experience. We further use topology…

3D Printing of Food for People with Swallowing Difficulties

The International Conference on Design and Technology 2017 Pages 23-29

Dysphagia affects many people worldwide. Modifying foods to standard consistencies, and manual design and assembly of foods for the daily requirements of people with dysphagia is challenging. People with dysphagia may develop a dislike for pureed foods due to the unattractiveness of the appearance of the foods, the lack of variety in daily meals, and the diluted taste of meals. Three-dimensional (3D) food printing is emerging as a method for making foods for people with special mealtime needs. Very few efforts have been made to apply 3D food printing to improving the lives of people with special mealtime needs such…
