A project in collaboration with Foodlab Manenwolfs in Rotterdam for the Enough Magazine 002, Spring 2021. A protein rich sweet potato puree is 3D printed in the shape of the Upprinting Food logo. The sweet potato logo is inoculated with Rhizopus oligosporus. During the fermentation, white mold mycelium covers the shape, which gives an interesting flavor and enriches the nutritional content of the food. Afterwards it can be baked, steamed or fried. Tempeh is often used as a meat replacement.

 

A continuation plan is set-up, in which the 3D printing of tempeh will be further explored with sustainable ingredients (i.a. food residuals) in collaboration with Manenwolfs and showcased in a restaurant setting.
