The Salted Cod Volcano "The first 3D Food Printed Icelandic Salted Cod
The first 3D food printed formulations using Icelandic cod surimi, salted cod, and cod protein isolate, were used last week to make Salted Cod Volcano at the Natural Machines headquarters in Barcelona.
The Salted Cod Volcano is just one of the novel, reinvented food forms that has been created using the raw fish materials from Iceland. More work will be carried out with Icelandic seafood raw materials using the 3D printer Foodini, the first of its kind in Iceland and in Scandinavia.
Speaking at the World Seafood Congress in Reykjavík this year, Natural Machines co-founder and CMO Lynette Kuscma will discuss 3D food printing and opportunities for seafood.
The focus of the World Seafood Congress 2017, held just prior to the Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition, is on the growth in the Blue-Bioeconomy, practical approaches and cutting edge research for market innovation, food safety and food integrity. Its main pillars are seafood innovation, focusing on examples of innovation and investment opportunities, food integrity and how to counteract food fraud in the age of increased e-commerce, tourism and demands of value chain transparency, and finally food safety in the context of seafood innovation and international trade.
The World Seafood Congress was initiated by Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and United Nations Industrial Development Organization. The Congress is owned by The International Association of Food Inspectors (IAFI). Each conference is organised by a selected institute in the host country, and the 2017 event is organised by Matís ltd. – Icelandic Food and Biotech R&D.
