Description

Collection of 15 Soviet Space Food Packages

Collection of 15 packages of Russian space food, with cuisine including: dinner bread, crackers, toffee, ginger cookies, caramel, marmalade, cookies, prunes, apple-cherry juice, ketchup, Earl Grey tea, green tea, coffee, strawberry tea, and oatmeal with wild berries. In overall fine condition. Male cosmonauts are recommended to consume 3200 calories per day, while recommended consumption for a female is 2800 calories. The specially prepared dried and vacuum-packed Russian foods have largely alleviated concerns of creating nutritious yet compact foods to be sent into space. The food resultant from the manufacturing process retains its natural characteristics including as proteins, fats, carbohydrates and vitamins. One of the main advantages of these Russian products for cosmonauts is the absence of any stabilizers or preservatives, using only natural ingredients. An interesting and unusual collection.
