Phase VPrototype Ration Testing

When a sufficient number of food items have successfully passed through the preceding phases of testing, a new prototype ration would be assembled and compared to the ration it was meant to replace in a field test. The measures taken during this field test would include selection rate and consumption of all items, daily nutrient and fluid intake, body weight, hydration status, food acceptance, and consumer satisfaction with the utility of the ration. The testing would occur in all appropriate environments (hot, cold, temperate, and altitude) during field-training exercises. The data from these tests would serve as the basis for a precurement decision for rations that did not pose unusual nutritional problems or were designed for extended periods of use. Rations that fell into these latter categories would be more completely tested in Phase VI.
