We might someday get nutrients from "super nutritious pizza," according to a nutritionist who develops meal-replacement shakes.

That could help change the diets of Americans who generally don't eat enough fruits and vegetables.

The idea is that in the future, food might not look or taste different, but would contain nutrients you might be lacking. You can see this already in milk that's fortified with vitamin D. The Food and Drug Administration has guidelines in place about these nutrient additions.

Schmitz said he's also seen some promise in 3D-printed food created by a machine. That technology could allow different items to be personalized according to a person's unique nutritional needs. Are you low in iron or magnesium? A machine could...
