Abstract : Experiments were carried out to study the effects of dehydrated foods for crews of speceships during prolonged flights. Those undergoing the tests were given dehydrated food equal in protein, carbohydrates and fats, to that eaten by people not carrying out manual work. The health, over a 4-month period, did not suffer, although there was a reduction in weight of examinees who weighed more than 75 kg at the outset.
