Emergency Rations


Emergency Rations are used to provide the nutrition necessary for soldiers and other individuals to operate in the field. The cheapest type are supplemental pills, providing all of the nutritional needs and nothing else, and they are easy to store. More expensive are individual ration packs, packages of dehydrated or hermetically sealed versions of complete preserved meals. These can be consumed straight from the package or heated up and served more conventionally, but only when "real" food is unavailable will an individual decide to eat these rations.[1]
