Nutritional Adequacy

The primary purpose of military subsistence is to maintain the health and effectiveness of the persons subsisted. Military nutritional standards are based on the National Academy of Sciences Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs) as modified by military experience. As some of the known essential nutrients suffer loss in processing and preparation, raw, perishable foods would appear to be the best nutritional option, but the need for stockpiling, conservation of space and weight in storage and transport, and potential for worldwide distribution of the stored items obviously precludes reliance on the freezer facilities this would entail. In addition, availability of freezer and food service facilities and personnel on a worldwide basis during early days of emergencies is unlikely. To compensate for nutrients lost during processing and storage, it is necessary to fortify selected ration components that are stable carriers for the respective nutrients.
