The Importance of Protein
Your body uses protein to build and repair tissues. You also use protein to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. Protein is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood. This is important for tissue growth and repair and as it is digested more slowly than carbohydrates (within 3-4hrs). Good food sources include cheese, meat and fish. Soldiers and all athletes often sustain injuries and protein aids repair and helps with avoiding unnecessary injuries.
The importance of Fat
Fats provide the greatest amount of energy per gram taking around 4-5 hours to digest and are also important for health nerves and cellular functions. Cheese, nuts and chocolate are good food sources and convenient to include in a ration pack.
The Importance of Carbohydrates
As an instant source of energy food with a high glycaemic index (GI) such as glucose sweets, sports drinks and energy bars release energy within 30minutes while food that is lower in GI such as muesli and dried fruit release energy more slowly within 2hours and are more satisfying.
International ration packs often cause constipation due to lack of fibre. To circumvent this we manufacture high fibre digestive biscuits which are added to every pack and dried fruit release energy more slowly within 2hours and are more satisfying.
