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.
