does not require water, and therefore it is easier for the body to absorb. In addition, this dry ration facilitates the recovery of the body after dry, waterless fasting.

According to senior researcherLaboratory of Solid State Chemistry, Institute of Chemical Technology of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Alexei Bychkov, the researchers decided to apply mechanically activated hydrolysis to the products. With its help, proteins and carbohydrates in dry food products are broken down to simpler compounds.

This process also occurs in the body whenassimilation of food. But he needs water, which is in great shortage during disasters on the high seas. With a lack of fluid in the body, human blood thickens strongly, blood clots form, which can lead to heart attacks and strokes.
