In previous times we reviewed a sample rations in 2012, which used the Ministry of Defense and the Interior. Today I will talk about an experimental dry rations, which gave me to test one of the manufacturers.
Individual diet battle
Gross weight - 1.67 kg. Energy - 3636.26 kcal. Proteins - 123.34 g, fat - 168.09 g, carbohydrates - 418.41 g Shelf life - 1 year (up to three years in some parts).
The outer packaging - cardboard box. To understand the scale hereinafter attached a box of matches.
Inside the carton - packaging foil.
punching on the container there, so we had to cut with a knife. The foil pouch is convenient because after the extraction of the necessary components (such as breakfast), it can be re-sealed solder slightly by holding the incision over the fire (matches, lighter) and then squeezed it.
Set of products recommended for breakfast. still it was listed, and a multivitamin, but it does not appear in the list. Instead, it lay another candy.
Dry mashed potatoes.
Sugar. Separate plus packing foil, this does not get wet.
From personal care products, cutlery and accessories for opening and warming food were:
Disinfecting wipes (3 pieces).
In one package contains just two towels: White - Hand and green - for dishes. Green has good properties and Emery dish will fit just right.
The four paper napkins and three spoons.
Razogrevatel. Empty cell, apparently once contained Cherkashov.
Apparatus for water purification.
Inside the black packaging is disinfecting tablet "Akvabriz" 5 tablets of activated charcoal and a collar.
According to the instructions in the jar first need to throw "Akvabriz", after a while the activated carbon, and then, putting the package on the neck of the jar, pour water into a cup or bowl. Flask, I had not, therefore, show you how it looks on the example of the plastic bottle. The water in the cup filtered through something similar to wool.
There are some disadvantages. It is unclear why the pill "Akvabriza" only one, because the standard Army canteen on the day did not suffice. The collar is not very tight squeezes the neck, so it may slightly leak (water should be drained slowly). Remove the clamp is very inconvenient, t. To. The pin prevents snow. Well, I had a pocket knife with a thin blade was and managed to pry, but with a thick tip of a bayonet-knife is not a ride.
I start to heat up. Trivet heaters tightly adhered to the protective film from the inside, so it is necessary to literally tear off from it. The adhesive adheres to the fingers come into contact with printed instructions on the front side, whereby the fingers get dirty with ink. Cloth all quickly erased, but it is unpleasant.
opener attached to the kit was not designed for the type of jars, in which products are packaged. So open the usual cans, so I had to use a knife.
Now about the taste properties of the products offered for breakfast.
It is tasty, but the composition recalls the famous anecdote about butchering cows: ear, nose, throat, tits, pussy, tail. Chewed, by the way, normal, veins are not felt.
puree can be poured and cold and warm, and hot water. He poured cold, poured half of the mixture.
After stirring has turned out such a product.
Mashed clearly gives the powder, but quite edible. If the spill plate stew, even very good work. By the way, the mixture can be used in dry form, the taste is quite personal.
Biscuits standard. Jam has not changed for several years, and to him no complaints, tasty. Condensed standard, very comfortable, in a resealable tube. Fruit stick of prunes, apricots and nuts. Thing!
Normal packaged coffee. Candy - the usual candy, for her a special thank you, things are especially appreciated in the army.
Buckwheat porridge with beef.
Fruit stick (this time, apricot and walnut).
Dry beverage concentrate "Adaptovit".
Biscuits, sugar, candy.
If cereal is usually tightly compressed, this has been very loose in other rations.
Since the tomato sauce you can use to choose from, I chose to add it in the buckwheat.
If before the tomato sauce in the rations was quite sharp, but this time it did, "sharpened". Not chili, of course, but I'm not keen I like, so eat without appetite.
Pate was good and there are no claims against him.
Fruit stick - good. Tea - the usual bags, but the rope is not the usual paper square, slightly uncomfortable when removing the bag from the mug. Dry drink is not bad.
Since everything is already described above, the show only natural mackerel.
palatable fish, no complaints there.
At the amateur salt / pepper.
General impressions and suggestions.
Rations good. Would recommend using a high-quality beef, tomato sauce made less sharp, put chewing gum and another dry drink for him. Think about to add bacon. Replace opener, add one more tablet dry fuel.
