The Modular Operational Ration Enhancement (MORE) was developed to augment daily operational rations with
additional components tailored to particular environments. There are two types of MORE, one targets high altitude and
cold weather while the other is intended for hot weather operations.
Warfighters in extreme environments, such as cold weather, high altitude, or elevated temperature, require extra calories
beyond the standard operational rations in order to combat weight loss and decreased physical and cognitive abilities.
The MORE provides the correct amount of extra calories for these specific environmental scenarios with the right
balance of fat, carbohydrate, and protein. By augmenting the MRE™ or FSR™ with additional calories and nutrients,
the Warfighter is capable of performing at maximum capacity in extreme environments. The MORE is not a
replacement to the MRE™ or FSR™; it is a scientifically balanced addition that ensures peak performance in even the
most austere battlefield locations.
What's in it?
MORE components are calorically dense and carry a balance of carbohydrates, caffeine, electrolytes, vitamins,
antioxidants, and amino acids. The MORE includes food components that are essential to improving the mental and
physical abilities of Warfighters in demanding, extreme conditions.
How do I eat it?
The MORE-High Altitude/Cold Weather and MORE-Hot Weather are composed of developmental and commercial
items, including caffeinated pudding, energy gels, carbohydrate-enhanced beverages, First Strike™ bars, carbohydratedense
nut mixes, crackers, caffeinated gum and Zapplesauce®. Drink powders are issued in easy-to-use pouches hourglass
How long will it last?
The MORE has a shelf life of 3 years at 80°F.
