Abstract:

The US Army Natick Soldier, Research, Development, and Engineering Center NSRDEC, now the US Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Soldier Center CCDC SC conducted a series of experiments, titled Advanced Thermal Processing of UGR H and S Group Sized Entrees, to explore novel thermal technologies to enhance quality of traditionally retorted ration entrees. This technical report documents a Science and Technology initiative for an advanced thermal processing technology, ohmic heating, to produce shelf stable, high quality, and nutritious ration entrees. The funding for the study came from the Combat Feeding Research and Engineering Board CFREB from FY13-FY17.
