What is inside army ration dry
Today tasted individual diet version 6, intended for supply to the troops of the Russian Federation Ministry of Defense in 2012.
If you remember, last year I already told you about one of the dry rations (IRP 7), so that in some places will be compared with him.
Manufacturer brazing - JSC "Gryazinsky Food Factory" (Lipetsk region). If the previous weighed 1.75 kilograms, the new - 2.1 kg. If the number of kilograms of fresh rations overtakes the old, then the shelf life is the opposite: the old - 1 year, 10 months, new - 11 months.
, too, there are differences nutritionally. Proteins: old - 115g, the new - 131.4 g; Fats: old - 147 grams, the new - 256.2 g; carbohydrates: old - 383 grams, the new - 376.7 g
Energy value: old - 3395 kcal, the new - 4253.2 kcal.
But not everything is measured only dry figures, see below, and we will talk.
To scale almost every photo applied a conventional boxes of matches.
The handle is not torn because I impatiently attacked her, tearing to eat rations, and with a simple carrying a couple of tens of meters. A similar problem was and with a handle on the old diet. Lord manufacturers, correct as well?
The box inside is covered with foil and short-term presence in the rain does not hurt the content, but to dip it in the water do not recommend: runs along the seam on the bottom
Inside the cardboard box in which the stacked products.
Instructions for use.
At breakfast on the instructions offered to use: - Bread army of wheat flour 1 grade (pictured lowest packaging and one on the right).
Stuffing sausage special (pictured - right).
Buckwheat porridge with beef.
Fruit-berry concentrate. There are only three, you can choose any.
Dark chocolate. With ideology fighter processing Suvorov provided utterance.
Cream camouflaged, so that the enemy will not see.
Sugar. Somehow, in two different packages.
Before eating, hands can be cleaned with a damp cloth. There are only three.
Cutlery on instructions should be represented by a single knife and 3 spoons, but also a set of leaked knife. There is also a 3 paper napkins.
trivet for heating has been here in a paper bag.
The new version of brazing tablets are not packaged individually.
After using the trivet is supposed to fold back into the package. Inside it is covered with a film, so when accidental contact raskisnut moisture should not.
Matches. There are over-designed packaging for matches than the previous soldering: extract easier and do not break, which side is not squeezed out.
But the soft Cherkashov in any did not want to push for wrapping paper, had to cut it with a knife. Offer manufacturers from Cherkashov provide protruding tab on the paper so that it can be, pulling reveal.
Surprisingly, there was no soldering opener for cans, so I had to wield a knife prudently captured. How many remember his field yields 90% of the banks have opened just the supplied opener. I do not know why breakfast is recommended to use a knife: porridge for a more uniform heating was quite "hacked" spoon.
The new Taganka vetrootboyniki shorter than the old one, so the dry fuel tablet on edge it is not put (the bottom of the banks it rests) can be used only in the supine position. This is correct, t. To. Vetrootboyniki higher, the greater the distance between the fire and the Bank, and therefore more heat into the atmosphere.
There was no wind, so the fuel without any problems flamed by one match.
Now for the taste sensations.
Although it is written that the buckwheat porridge with beef, really hard to find the meat. The taste is more like a usual buckwheat with nothing. I am on a do not agree with previous versions of the meat is clearly felt!
Impressions brightened sausage meat, garlic and peppers which gave a certain sharpness and food helps absorb deflating porridge.
Standard bread, do not change for a long time, they were no questions asked.
Chocolate is good, no issues (foil molds variety of colors, so this view).
Jam is the same as before. Average. Fruit-berry concentrate with strawberry, blueberry and wild rose - good.
To the coffee with cream I was indifferent, but no claims to him there. Good.
After the meal, really pleased with the presence of chewing gum in the diet.
Then, the more the sad part of the feast: dinner. At lunch on the instructions offered to eat: bread army of wholemeal (2 first package in the photo).
Meatballs with beef.
Ragout of vegetables.
Tea, sugar (tea are standard packaged "May").
This is not the meatballs back in the form of a heated (the fat is melted). Not to say that on this dish I'm delighted, but not a bad call. Something in between.
Vegetable stew turned out with sweet pepper, which I can not stand, so I did not like. But his wife ate it with pleasure.
Why do we need 4 slices of dried pollack in the dry rations - a mystery to me. At the landfill, or somewhere in the Achkhoy-Martan in the mountains with beer obvious problems, so what? Not officers in the rear, of course, be pleased, but the soldiers did in fact more.
If accidentally press down jar stew, then the subsequent opening risk lose part liquid sauce which inevitably by the laws of physics will rush out. would be stronger than the bank or something.
Dinner. He is the most profound:
- Bread from wheat flour of the first grade
- Lard salty canned
liver pate (pictured left).
meat with beans and vegetables.
sterilized cheese (the same as in the old soldering).
"Approved by astronauts."
Meat with beans and vegetables turned out to be basically a bean. Found only two any significant piece of meat. I do not like these dishes, so through the power only ate a few spoonfuls of the sample.
proved to be the most delicate bacon Lard. Not a fan of this product, but I do know that in the field it goes with a bang. I put a plus. Liver pate - normal liver pate. Normal. Hard cheese - the norm.
Mashed apples - delicious product, ate with gusto.
Of the three dry beverage most like the one that cherry-flavored. The other two are also good. For water disinfection tablets can be used "Akvabriza".
Now the general impressions. Unanimous chorus of critics who claimed the same diversity in the rations, as well as in the US, did their dirty deed: the meat has gone even to the second, and the third role, instead the ball is ruled vegetables. Kashi also go into the shadows. No, with hunger, I eat and stews, beans and destroy, but without any pleasure.
From just such personal predilections put minus the small amount of meat (where stews?), Cereals and beans dominance. In the black fruit concentrates, puree of apples, chocolate, chewing gum, bacon.
The number of paper tissues offer to double. And you can wipe the knife will be, and the hands, which spill sauce squeezed from banks and lips.
