Technology Forum: The U.S Military’s Forgotten Horn of Plenty

Think about this… How can chemical engineers like us help in the development of superfood, for survival?

Why is it important? What is it for? 

With this superfood, you could keep your whole family well-fed on just 0.5$ a day for months on end. It’s probably the most nutritious food on Earth that doesn’t require refrigeration. The army invented it during the Cold War to help America survive a nuclear attack by the Soviets. And today, an ex-cook will unearth its secret formulation for the first time.

The most amazing aspect is that this superfood requires only run-of-the-mill ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. You just need to know how to combine them in the right amounts. A feat that cost the army hundreds of experiments and millions of dollars.
