Abstract : A storage study was conducted over a seven-year period to determine the stability of representative types of Civil Defense shelter rations. At the beginning of this period, 10 cereal items were deposited in storage over an interval of four months, and 3 carbohydrate supplements were stored about a year later. Determinations were also made of the stability of packaging materials in which the rations were stored. (Author)
