If you’re running out of creativity for a special dinner or just want to diversify and try a new food, you can now buy the first 3D printed salmon available in supermarkets. In addition to containing similar levels of protein and omega-3 as the original fish, the product is vegan, has less carbon emissions involved in its production and has a flavor that mimics the real thing.

The food in question is called “THE FILET – Inspired By Salmon” and was invented by the food startup Revo Foods
A company press release shared by the site IFLScience states that, with the launch of the product, an era of “creative food revolution” begins.
With the milestone of industrial-scale 3D food printing, we are entering a creative food revolution, an era in which food is created exactly according to customer needs.
Robin Simsa, CEO of Revo Foods
What is salmon made of
Revo Foods has teamed up with another startup, called Mycorena, to develop microproteins suitable for 3D printing and make food as close to the real thing as possible. They consist of filamentous fungi.
According to the company, 3D salmon contains vitamins similar to the original, such as vitamins A, B2, B12 and D2, as well as omega-3s and 9.5 grams of protein per 100 grams (slightly lower than that of fish normal).
