Abstract : Mineral composition of a diurnal food ration made up predominantly of lyophilized products and of the same ration after replacement of its vegetable constituents by a nutritional biological mass of higher plants grown in a phytotrone of the biological human life support system was investigated. The final results prove that as concerns the phosphorus, magnesium, sulphur, potassium, sodium, and calcium levels the compositions of the ration under study do not differ essentially one from the other and meet the recommended physiological standards.
