Abstract : "The paper describes the various theoretical considerations which form the basis of formulating service rations for various situations in tropical climates. It has been mentioned that the main problem related to provisioning of bulk rations consists in the selection of right type of food materials, and in this connection, a discussion has been made of the studies being undertaken at Defence Science Laboratory on the nutritive values of oil dehydrogenated serum cholesterol and phospholipid levels of service personnel and on the development of precooked dehydrated food-stuffs. The need of having a more varied and more appetizing pack ration has also been stressed in this paper. Lastly, the fundamental basis of determining the size of the food components as well as the water components of the survival rations for the navy and airforce has also been explained."
