GastroGrub3d is asking the question: Can combining a novel food production process (3D printing) and a novel food base (powdered insects) take us beyond novelty and create beautiful, nutrient-rich, customizable snacks that meet the diverse dietary needs of the U.S. population?

Join us for this technological and culinary adventure with an open mind and an empty stomach!
