A man developed food products for astronauts on special food technology on the basis of fundamental scientific achievements in the field of space nutrition. The production of food products for astronauts engages only domestic innovative technologies specially designed for the crews of space expeditions on the basis of the highest quality natural raw materials, without the addition of artificial thickeners, flavors, stabilizers, preservatives, dyes and GMOs. The high energy and biological value of food products for astronauts makes them unique for maintaining active life in non-standard conditions and under increased exertions on the human body in space. In order to expand the range of food products for the crews of the International Space Station (ISS) authors conducted research on the development specifics of new first freeze-dried lunch dishes. Providing the crews of manned spacecraft with good quality and adequate to the astronauts needs food is one of the main program tasks of further space exploration. The food rations composition is largely determined by the technical capabilities of manned spacecraft and orbital stations. Existing spacecraft are of limited volume and energy resources, which makes it difficult to create adequate conditions for food storage and cooking. This determines the use limitations of many products types and a number of fairly strict products requirements for feeding astronauts.
