This Is What Is REALLY In Military Food.
It’s probably safe to assume that most people have a vague idea of what soldiers out in the field are eating. You probably know they eat what are called Meals Ready-to-Eat, or MREs for short. But have you ever wondered what exactly is inside those small brown packages? How on Earth can a meal fit in that small pouch? And does the food even taste good?

People in the army who are working out in the field obviously don’t have access to kitchens, so the US military devised a meal program that was efficient and easy to use while still providing basic nutritional needs to its soldiers. The history of the MRE stretches all the way back to the Civil War, but today’s rations are much different than they were over a century ago.

Are you curious about the menu that soldiers can choose from and what their meals provide nutritionally? We’re ready to show you that and more, including how they are able to heat their meals without the use of fire and how MREs are practical not just for the military, but even for civilians in emergency or crisis situations, such as communities struck by natural disasters.

Stay tuned to learn more about the amazing science behind these ration pouches, from their role in the history of the birth of America to their widespread practicality of the modern world, and how you can get your hands on an MRE to try for yourself.
