The study was originated to design, develop, and demonstrate an integrated feeding system based on a specified number of stable food components which can be stored in a limited space and from which can be prepared a variety of nutritious food items. Information is presented for the preparation of 10 food bars, 4 food sheets and 13 food adjunct cubes. Data are given on these components packed in flexible pouches, some under vacuum, after a thirteen week storage study. Evaluations were carried out on microbiological, physical and organoleptic considerations. Hedonic ratings are shown for 45 meals prepared from these components before and after thirteen weeks storage at 38C using both a nine point 5 neutral scale and a nine point 3 neutral scale. Nutritional values of ingredients used are listed.
