Abstract : The Army Radiation Preservation of Food Program was initiated over 10 years ago to determine if components of rations or entire rations (garrison or field) can be processed by exposure to ionizing radiation so as to yield preserved food products which are (1) wholesome, (2) acceptable in terms of palatability and nutritive value, (3) resistant to deterioration under unfavorable storage conditions, (4) economically feasible, and (5) in these and in other respects equal or superior to foodstuffs preserved by other methods.
