US military development: three-year pizza shelf



Scientists at the Massachusetts laboratory, which is developing for the US military, created a “long-playing” pizza that is suitable for food even after three years of storage outside the refrigerator or freezer.

According to Fox News, pizza is the most popular dish among American military personnel. In 1981, the US Army decided to switch from canned food to the so-called dry rations, but there is still no pizza in them.

“You can store pizza in the literal sense of the word on the counter for three years, and it will still remain edible,” said representatives of the US Army Research Center in Natik, which is engaged in equipment and food for military personnel.

Creating a “long-running pizza” took about two years. For scientists, the main difficulty was that the moisture from the filling, cheese and sauce impregnated the pizza dough, which contributes to the appearance of mold. As a result, managed to create a substance that fully retains moisture. But this is still not enough to make pizza edible for three years. Then the scientists adjusted the acidity level of the pizza in such a way as to halt the processes of oxidation and prevent bacteria from multiplying in the product. In addition, metal inserts were added to the pizza package, which is necessary for the absorption of oxygen residues.

In addition, to create a pizza with such a long shelf life, we had to change the acidity of the tomato sauce, cheese, and dough in order to lower the oxidation rate and slow down the proliferation of bacteria. And in order to remove excess air from the dough, a special filler was added to the pizza packaging.

        ...this is not the limit -
        "Stew in 1900 is much better than stew in 2000 !!!"
        For more than a century, an unprecedented experiment of Russian scientists has been going on, which makes us believe in miracles and helps to realize how little we know about nature. It turns out that the shelf life of food is unlimited! Provided that it was stored in the bowels of Taimyr. Some products already one hundred and four years, but they nevertheless retained their taste and nutritional properties, and can give odds to those products that today show off in the windows of expensive supermarkets.
        This unique experiment was started back in 1900. Russian travelers Eduard Toll laid four warehouses for his expedition to the Taimyr coast. He never used one of them. And in 74, according to Toll's diaries, a new expedition of the State Reserve discovered and tasted what had been lying in the permafrost for several decades. Cabbage soup and meat turned out to be not only safe for food, but also extremely tasty. Then, already for "scientific purposes", a second batch of Soviet products was put into the natural refrigerator. This summer, an expedition of scientists made another visit to Cape Depo.
        Vladimir Ledenev, head of the expedition: “Here are cabbage soup laid in the 1900 year. All taste and healthy properties are absolutely respected. "
        This can of stew was held in the hands of Edward Toll. But century-old products were not given to reporters. But relatively young exhibits ate everything. 74 stew of the year turned out to be tastier than the modern analogue. Apparently there is no soy. Condensed milk, chocolate, beef, porridge and tea - as if yesterday from the store.
        Vladimir Ledenev, expedition leader: “Permafrost is an ideal repository. Tea, meat and other products are stored from 3 to 6 years, then re-laying is required. In permafrost, these products can be stored for decades. ”
        In case of war, 5 of thousands of items are stored in the State Reserve. But to produce products is not difficult. It’s hard to keep them. Some countries, like Holland, use the energy of the tides, while others use the power of wind and sun. In Russia, permafrost occupies a vast territory. Which can be used as an eternal, natural and completely free refrigerator. Always minus 37,5. There are no rats, no bugs, no worms. Only bears sometimes rub their backs on a lighthouse pillar sticking out of the ground.
        The next tasting is scheduled for 2050 year. And to the official list of products was added the personal scientific interest of the expedition chief - three bottles of vodka. // TV Center

          Considering that the Yankees are not aware of the cult of tasty and healthy food - they eat a drawn paper pizza and say "Super!" The main thing is to draw and take pictures beautifully!

          I remember, at the beginning of 90xx, the delegation of amers came to us, we fed them borsch with black bread for lunch ... And everything for every meal - breakfast, lunch, dinner, they began to demand a borsch with black bread ... and a wort!

          Then there was a return visit ...
          I ask - how is the food?

    In the polar latitudes, the remains of food reserves of various expeditions of pre-revolutionary times were found - quite edible and digestible.

    Although pizza in a plastic bag is an ersatz product.

    It is not surprising that such "developments" are put at the forefront of the Merikos, because their gluttony, and everything that does not get shoved into their mouths, they have at the genetic level, something similar-critical, they tried to ascribe to the citizens of the USSR in the film Moscow on the Hudson, attributing their own values ​​to the citizens of the USSR.
    I still remember the phrase: - Devour and shit, the only human happiness!
    And with their "eternal pizza", or rather its PR, the Mericos confirm their own relevance that Devour and Shit is the only American happiness!

    I can imagine what this ersatz is. If moisture is removed, then this is a simple cracker with petrified sausage and cheese. And most likely, the number of preservatives there just rolls over. I suppose that constipation will be such that only igniters from grenades can help. Instead of candles.
    And on the other hand, they spoil their soldiers. They analyzed what they like to eat most of all, and here you are, to your health. Ours do not bother with this, and it would not be bad to open a can of canned food, and there are ruddy stuffed pancakes.

    We weren’t surprised! At the beginning of the 200s, stew and meat were stored in our army, which was stored in refrigerators for about 50 years. They brought it all from Brazil.

    Another thing is scary. That after a while it will go into mass catering and people will eat such long-term bullshit. Given that the human body has its own microflora that contributes to its life, this pizza will gradually destroy the microflora and all sorts of disorders and health problems will begin. They are already being observed. People in a living state will be embalmed and will not decompose after death due to the lack of microflora processing the remains. The balance in nature is disturbed through the fault of man.
