Lot 9046: Collection of ten packages of Russian space food, with cuisine including: salty almonds, oatmeal with wild berries, coffee with sugar, crackers, toffee, caramel candies, dinner bread, marmalade, tea, and cherry-apple juice. In overall fine condition. Male cosmonauts are recommended to consume 3200 calories per day, while recommended consumption for a female is 2800 calories. The specially prepared dried and vacuum-packed Russian foods have largely alleviated concerns of creating nutritious yet compact foods to be sent into space. The food resultant from the manufacturing process retains its natural characteristics including proteins, fats, carbohydrates, and vitamins. One of the main advantages of these Russian products for cosmonauts is the absence of any stabilizers or preservatives, using only natural ingredients. An interesting and unusual collection.
