Abstract : Manufacturing requirement documents were written which describe the food processing and packaging technology used in space feeding systems. These documents combine information contained in the original Space Food Prototype Production Guides with additions and modifications developed through food testing and manufacturing experience. They were designed to provide complete and systematic descriptions concerning the production environment, equipment, raw ingredients, processing and packaging procedures, and end item specifications used in the manufacture of space foods. These documents include cross references to microbiological requirements, food prototypes, quality assurance provisions and food coatings and coating methods. The use of these manufacturing requirement documents in space food production has essentially eliminated a requirement for granting specifications waivers for flight foods. (Author)
