15&16 June @ Indian Summer Festival

15 & 16 June we will be at the Indian Summer Festival. Top Food Lab will be part of the Indian Summer Lab on the specially design floating island where science meets sustainability. There we will be giving the audience a sneak peak into the future of food.  What exactly is still a secret but it has something to do with the picture above… 🙂

mid-air 3D printing

The impossible seems to be possible. 3D printing objects as if gravity doesn’t exist. This anti-gravity 3D printer is called MATAERIAL and is the result of the collaborative research between the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) and Joris Laarman Studio from the Netherlands.

While 3D printing with edible materials is still in a much more experimental stage, this kind of videos inspire us to dream about mid-air printed threedimensional foods in the near future.

At TOP FoodLab we keep on experimenting on 3D food printing because we believe the impossible will be possible soon.

In vitro-meat

As the planet’s population speeds up towards 9 billion, it is impossible to continue consuming meat like we do today. An often heard argument for eating meat: it provides nutritious proteins that cannot be entirely supplied by vegetarian alternatives.  If we still continue to eat a lot of meat, there should be a solution. Well, here it is; in-vitro meat, also known as cultured meat, test tube meat. In-vitro meat is an animal flesh product that has never been part of a complete, living animal. Some scientists are convinced that in-vitro meat is the future. In vitro-meat
