Default Introducing the DRI

Been playing around with a few things.....

A replacement for the Ration Pack:

The Project’s Daily Ration Individual is a compact ration designed to feed one person for 24 hours. It is designed to withstand rough conditions and exposure to the elements. The DRI is also designed to be lightweight and small in size. It is designed to provide approximately 2,900 calories per DRI (consisting of 15% protein, 34% fat, and 53% carbohydrates). It has a shelf life of four years if stored at temperatures of less than 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Each ration weighs 1.13kg. Each case holds three of each menu, for a total of 27 per case for a weight of 13.15kg.

Shelf-stable Pocket Sandwiches can come in Bacon, Honey BBQ and PB&J.

Morrow Bars are similar to commercial performance bars (PowerBars) and come in chocolate, apple-cinnamon, raspberry, cran-raspberry, and mocha flavors. The mocha bars are fortified with 200mg of caffeine.

Morrowsauce is made with extra maltodextrin, a complex carbohydrate, for sustained energy release.

ERGO drink mix contains Maltodextrin as the key ingredient. ERGO tastes similar to a sports drink. It is intended to increase endurance by conserving glycogen, which is energy stored in the liver and muscles. The ERGO drink packs will have a “fill-to” line so users easily know how much water to pour in. Straws were desired but are not feasible, so the drink pouch was redesigned so as to be easier to grip and drink from. One or two may be added to a DRI.

Just think, you open your Team Cache and find several cases of these beauties waiting. Same nine menus.....a lovely two week supply....encourage the team to get off their duff and contact the locals....

That's quite a lot of creativity there! Good stuff
Always nice to have some extra food options.

The only thing I would question would be the shelf life, I'm inclined to think it could be longer based on what I've seen with military rations packs - I've had ration packs while in the Australian Army that were anywhere between eight and twelve years old.
As for civilian food, as long as the packaging itself doesn't break down, get damaged etc. etc., a lot of tinned food will last for several years and still be safe to eat.

But anyway... nice work, thanks for posting it. Thumbs Up!
