As the proportion of the elderly in the world population is expected to con-tinuously grow in the future, adequate preparations for retirement are needed to lead a quality life. The Creation of Taste is a project that offers people new ways to stay healthy. It is a service designed for people living in nursing homes who suffer from dysphagia (difficulty chewing and swallowing), which leads to a rapid deterioration of their health due to nutritional imbalances. Using a 3D food printer, the service provides specific nutrients needed by each patient. There is also a community platform on which patients can share 3D food printer recipes that are tasty and nutritious.
