Abstract:

Results of chemical and microbiological analysis of the 1978-79 packaging program are presented. The contents of moisture, fat, protein, carbohydrate, thiamin, ascorbic acid and energy of rations are included. Daily available nutrients are estimated and evaluated with respect to daily requirements. Some rations were found to be nutritionally unbalanced with respect to protein content. Certain rations were found to be marginally energy deficient. The rations were found to be microbiologically safe and evidence was found of a decrease in microbiological population during storage of freeze dried foods. Author
