Abstract:

A nutritional evaluation of the meals served during a food service experiment at Travis AFB, California was performed. The purpose of this evaluation was to determine the levels of selected nutrient elements provided by these meals and to compare them with established nutritional standards. In addition, the data provide for a comparison of the nutritional profiles of the meals served in the dining halls with those served in two new experimental food outlets. It is concluded that the meals served during the experiment were nutritionally adequate as compared to Air Force requirements, and that the meals served in the two new experimental food outlets did not differ significantly from comparable meals in the dining halls.
