Printec Bites

Taking personalized diets to the next level by 3D printing alternative and sustainable nutrients sources

Due to climate change and predicted calorie shortage, we need to develop different ways to get our nutrients. Insects are a sustainable source of protein, minerals, healthy fats and fiber. Printec Bites turns insects into a paste which is 3D printed into bars. The process allows the protein and fat content to be adjusted to personal needs. At first, we are targeting professions with critical nutrition requirements, such as soldiers, athletes and astronauts.
