In recent past, the technology of production with additives has emerged as one of the most promising. Unlike traditional manufacturing methods, material is piled one layer on top of the other to build the geometrically complicated structures. As a result, additive manufacturing is widely employed in a variety of industries such as aerospace, automobile, construction engineering and healthcare. The food industry is not immune to this technology. 3D printing is a term for additive manufacturing, which is used to create food with a broad range of forms, textures, and nutrients. As a result, 3D food printing is a technology for using 3D printing in the food industry (3DFP). The modern worldwide population is quite fussy about many elements of food such as appearance, flavour, health advantages, and so on. 3DFP has the potential to be a game changer. Hence, this paper presents an overview of the various processes of 3DFP along with the inks used, nutrition of such foods and consumer attitude.
