Apollo 9 Crew Meals

The Apollo 9 crew has a wide range of food items from which to select their dally mission space menu. More than 60 items comprise the food selection list of freeze-dried blte-siae and rehydratable foods. The average daily value of three meals will be 2,500 calories per man.

Water for drinking and rehydrating food is obtained from three sources in the command module — a dispenser for drinking water and two water spigots at the food preparation station, one supplying water at about 155 degrees F, the other at about 55 degrees P. The potable water dispenser emits half-ounce spurts with e*ch squeeze and the food preparation spigots dispense water in 1-ounce increments. Command module potable water is supplied from service module fuel cell by-product water.

A similar hand water dispenser aboard the lunar module is used for cold-water rehydration of food packets stowed in the m.

After water has been injected into a food bag, it Is kneaded for about three minutes. The bag neck is then cut off and the food, squeezed into the crewman's mouth. After a meal, germicide pills attached to the outside of the food bags are placed in the bags to prevent fermentation and gas formation and the bags are rolled and stowed in waste disposal compartments.

The day-by-day, meal-by-meal Apollo 9 menu for each crewman for both the command module and the lunar module is listed on the following pages.
