This spacefood package contains dehydrated tea with lemon, though it does not have any markings to determine if it was available for a flown mission. For a flight, each crew member was provided with three meals per day totalling approximately 2,800 calories per day. The spacecraft also had a pantry of other consumables for use as desired. The food was freeze-dried and was easily reconstituted by the astronaut with a water probe which dispensed one half ounce of hot or cold water as required, each time the trigger button was pressed.
This object is not on display at the National Air and Space Museum. It is either on loan or in storage.
