Abstract : A ration for use in the Office of Civil Defense ration program was developed. The product was formulated from whole wheat flour, casein, baking powder, sodium chloride, sucrose, fat, yeast, water, and small amounts of other ingredients. A daily portion contained 900 calories and 18.5% protein, and met all the requirements for the essential amino acids. The cost of the product was estimated to be approximately 11 cents per man-day. Preliminary rat nutrition studies were conducted.
