Russian Food That Travels to Space

Posted on April 18, 2014 by tim


Several research institutes and experimental plants are operating in Russia for the production of food products for space. This country is the only one in the world where operating organizations specialized in the manufacture of food for the space.


At first the product is frozen. The freezing temperature is from minus 30 to minus 70 degrees – it varies depending on the type of product. Then, the machine creates a vacuum to enhance sublimation and the products are heated to a temperature of 50 or 60 degrees and slowly dried. Ice crystals evaporate from the product immediately, without going into the water. Thus all the nutrients remain in the product. It saves up to 90 percent of its native properties.


Only four products are still available in tubes: sauce, seasoning, mustard and honey. A major part of the diet consists of heat sterilized products (products in cans: meat, fish or vegetable) and products of sublimation and thermal drying, which account for approximately 40 percent of the total volume of products: the first and second lunch dishes, juices, cheese, etc. They are packaged in aluminum cans or packages made of metallized polymeric skin, which allows you to restore dehydrated products before use, so to say hydrate or “waterfiil” it.
