Abstract : Bite-size foods were consumed by pilots of fighter-type aircraft in two trials, and data were collected on the acceptability and ease of handling these foods. This type of feeding system offers foods that are stable without refrigeration, are easy to handle, and need no kitchen facility for preparation. Bite-size food flavors at the present time do not surpass those of conventional foods. (Author)
