3D Printing Applications of Gelatin for Kids

Customizing and catering to each individual with different symptoms is more beneficial than taking a general antibiotic. The purpose of this project is to identify which type of gelatin; Bovine, Porcine, with and without Alginate and Calcium Chloride is a more efficient method of being 3D printed from a syringe extruder. By being able to print out custom gelatin-like gummy for kids to consume, this may be a better ideal method for helping treat different symptoms of allergies like peanut protein intake.
