Soon we may be solving problems with meat printers.

If a new technology gets up and running shops may one day be offering succulent burgers that have been printed.

It's a short step from commercial printing to home printing, so you never know - we might have to start a new food-printing help forum.

But you can't make something out of nothing, even polar exploration food would require basic ingredients, needing transportation to site, and there would be a production loss...

The basic ingredients will be in liquid form, and easily transportable.

Dehydrated or anhydrous 'ingredients' would make it easier to transport food [to Mars] or anywhere else for that matter, but water would be required to make the printouts edible, of course.

More likely to be growing meat in tanks than printing it.

Either way, the main proble will be getting a texture that is acceptable.
