Space Food, Pineapple Fruitcake, Apollo 11 (Blue)
- Whirlpool Corporation
- This spacefood package contains compressed pineapple fruitcake that was flown on Apollo 11. As it was not consumed during the mission it was returned to earth and transferred to the National Air and Space Museum from NASA.
- The fruitcake was able to be eaten directly from the bag. Apollo astronauts were provided with three meals per day which provided approximately 2,800 calories.
- The food was protected with a 4-ply, laminated film coating. This protected the food from loss of flavor, moisture and oxygen invasion, spoiling and excess crumbling, and was used on both the rehydratable and the bite-sized foods.
