Space Food, Brownies, Apollo 11 (Blue)

This spacefood package contains compressed brownies from the Apollo era. They could be eaten directly from the bag. Apollo astronauts were provided with three meals per day which provided approximately 2,800 calories.

The food was protected with a 4-ply, laminated film coating. This protected the food from loss of flavor, moisture and oxygen invasion, spoiling and excess crumbling, and was used on both the rehydratable and the bite-sized foods. The rehydratable foods also had an 8-quinolinol sulfate tablet attached to reduce spoilage in the used food wraps.
