To help reduce the amount of supplies Orion will carry for its crew, scientists are developing a variety of food bars that astronauts can eat for breakfast during their early spaceflight missions. But designing a food bar to a specific nutritional balance for astronauts while also increasing caloric density and passing the taste test is no small task. On Orion, the goal is to have a number of food bars to select from in a variety of flavors like orange cranberry or barbeque nut for their first meal of the day, reducing the amount of space and storage the breakfasts require. Food scientist Takiyah Sirmons and Orion's deputy health and medical technical authority, Jessica Vos, talk about the food bars.
