Abstract:

Nutritional supplements were developed for consumption with presently available shelter rations. When consumed as directed, these supplements will supply all the nutritional factors recognized by the National Research Council as essential for the maintenance of adults. They will extend the use of shelter rations to shelter occupants who require special feeding, and to the general population, during the post-attack period. The supplements are of two types unflavored compressed tablets and dehydrated spreads, flavored so that they will enhance the palatability of ration biscuit, cracker, and wafer. Accelerated storage tests indicate that a the tablets have a high expected shelf life, and b the flavor of the spreads should be further stabilized. New mint-type and tableted granular starch carbohydrate supplements were developed, which are soft-textured and fully compatible with the mucous membranes of the oral cavity.
