Clearly, an astronaut’s diet varies from day to day to ensure proper health while in space. And depending on the astronaut’s place of origin, preferences, and availability, their choice of foods will also vary. But I wonder if there are commonalities among the various astronauts in terms of foods that most tend to consume while in space, particularly on the ISS.
What are the most commonly consumed foods on the ISS by astronauts? More importantly, what characteristics make them the most commonly eaten foods?
I want to limit the scope of this question to foods consumed in solid form, as opposed to liquified foods or beverages. Is there a ranked list of most commonly consumed foods by astronauts overall on the ISS, independent of country of origin?
