Abstract

Total dietary fibre (TDF) provided by One Man ration packs used by the Australian military was estimated from summing TDF assays of some key components and recipe-weighted TDF contributions of ingredients for the remaining components. The 23-24g mean TDF in these ration packs compares favourably with current dietary recommendations and operational requirements.
