Barilla Will Present 3D ‘Pasta of the Future’ at Cibus International Food Fair
For the first time in history, an Italian producer, Barilla, presented pasta made with a 3D printer at the Cibus 2016 International Food Exhibition happened in Parma May 9-12. Barilla said it has been working on the project for four years, together with the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) and the first prototype made with 3D printer technology was made in 2015, when it was possible to produce fresh pasta in two minutes, using dough prepared with only durum wheat flour and water. This will allow to produce unique types of pasta characterized by shapes and geometric forms that can’t be obtained through traditional pasta-making technologies.
