Abstract : This article reviews the traditionally used food items vis-a-vis convenience foods developed by the Defence Food Research Laboratory (DFRL), Mysore, during the past three decades keeping in view the quality requirements (QRs} of the Defence Forces. Simultaneously, information has been provided on the kind of processing technologies used that any entrepreneur becomes aware of the infrastructure required to produce these commercially to meet the demands of the Army Purchase Organisation (APO) with DFRL know-how. The information provided will also be of immense value to APO in planning the convenience foods requirement and their inclusion in packed rations for special tasks and missions.
