III.O.12. Food Stabilization in Environmental Extremes. By the end of FY96, determine the heat stability, acceptability, consumption, nutrient requirements, and nutritional bioavailability of rations distributed, stored, and used in high heat scenarios and demonstrate improved rapid assay techniques for measuring storage stability under various climatic conditions. By the end of FY97, demonstrate improved rations/consumption with a 15 to 20 percent increase in nutrient bioavailability of heat stressed rations to meet the increased nutritional needs of soldiers in high heat environments.
