Astronaut Food

If you are interested in Astronauts and the way they live in space, then the way they eat is always a fascinating subject. Eating in space presents a number of problems. How to provide all the nutritional requirements of the astronauts while making the food easy to eat in a zero gravity environment and yet lightweight enough to not add too much weight at lift

When manned space exploration first began, choices were limited. To start with there was just bite sized cubes of freeze dried powders and semi-liquids in aluminium tubes. Although these foods were nutritious, they were fairly unappetising. Eventually the Astronauts got so fed up they complained, which made the guys on the ground look around for alternative solutions.

As packaging for astronaut food improved, so did the taste and choice of food available. Such culinary delights as chicken with vegetables, shrimp cocktail and apple sauce started to appear on the menu.

These days, when we thing about space food we think about freeze drying. By removing nearly all the water, food is made lightweight, long lasting and can be rehydrated to make it palatable.

The genius of freeze drying gives us tasty treats like freeze dried bananas and freeze dried strawberries. Then there's the ultimate in unexpectedly crunchy snacks: Astronaut Ice Cream.

Astronaut Ice Cream

Astronaut Ice Cream allows you to enjoy the unique ice creamy flavours, such as Neapolitan, Mint Choc Chip and Chocolate Chip without the need for freezers, cones and ice cream vans. Astronaut Ice Cream is dry and crunchy until you pop a piece in your mouth, then it rehydrates to the familiar creamy texture. In fact the only thing you don't get with Astronaut Ice Cream is the cold. Not bad for Space Food.
