This is very intriguing work you have done. I see it sitting in the center of a good sauce. Perhaps with mushrooms or spinach, and of course, cheese.

I’ve been working on the perfect masa dumpling. Not there yet but some good progress.

My interest in this area of 3D printed edibles is the potential to create special celebratory delicacies where the added value is delicious personalised presents. After Fabbaloo covered your work in January I wrote about these exciting developments and used our haptic software to design chocolates (see here http://www.anarkikangels.co.uk/index.php/3d-printed-edibles/). The reason for contacting you is the connection between how and why we developed our software and the needs of creative persons wanting to use 3D technologies. Creative people don’t want to spend valuable making, experimenting and doing time with having to learn a complex 3D modelling package (e.g. CAD). So we tapped into 3D haptic (3D virtual touch) technology as a familiar interface to interact and model in 3D as we all know how to interact in the real world with objects through our sense of touch and proprioception. The result is a package that is very intuitive, easy and quick to learn and use, and what is learnt is easy to retain until the next session. It marries how we as craftsmen work and create with the advantages of digital and virtual i.e. risk free environment to which we can bring our knowledge and expertise to explore and experiment to ultimately make something tangible.
I am a designer maker, a jeweller and I use 3D printing and the printed pieces as the final work, taking advantage of being able to personalising each piece within a series to keep them affordable.

Regular tortilla chips are made from masa.

In essence that is what they do, but they don’t have as much control over the texture as I’d like. In principle, I agree that a multihead simultaneous extruder is necessary.

When I first saw the photos, I’m just reminded of instant noodles that I have in my country, Malaysia…makes me wonder what masa is actually like cos I’ve never seen nor heard of it ’til here :D

Use it to pipe out already cooked and pureed food stuffs with a stabilizer?

cook it, puree it, stabilize it, print it! GO

I bet it wouldn’t be too hard to throw some extra syringes on there, which would open up more possibilities.

Although I have the feeling this has already been mentioned more than thrice.
