Optimum Dynamic Activities
What is Oda ?
ODA means Optimum Dynamic Activities. It is the 1st concept of ready-to-eat nutritionally controlled
food one-bite tablets, customer-centric, no water and heating needed, easy to transport and store.
Science fiction has predicted food being compressed into a tablet form for over 100 years and we are well on the
way to achieving it.
REM (ready to eat meals) is an easy, cheap solution to international food shortage or hunger. It can be an optimum solution when it comes to feeding post-disaster areas or during military or space missions. It is easy to transport, store and use in any conditions because it resists at temperatures between -50oC and +50oC or under water. ODA has a +4 years shelf life. The ODA tablets are designed to be used in zero gravity.
The science behind this patent-pending food tablet is that if you do not taste your food then you can trick your body into not feeling hungry. ODA can even be designed in 24H REM ratio packages, including dessert. Additionally, appropriate labels and warnings could easily be incorporated onto packaging. Our solution allows efficient use of raw materials and a sustainable production process. There are significant cost savings, resulting from reduced food waste, because of better suitability and control of food served according to the nutrition needs.
ODA can be designed to replace a meal, can be hundreds of mixtures covering different tastes, are made only with natural ingredients plus vitamins & minerals. They are personalized by taking into consideration the nutritional and calories intake needs, the activity level, the health status, the gender or the cultural background of different people groups.
- Cooked tablet food, hundreds of mixtures, designed to replace a main meal
- Main fields use: emergency, military & space missions, state & private bunkers
- Designed to be used in zero gravity
- Calories match destinations and use, nutritional and calories intake needs, the activity level, the health status, the gender or the cultural background of different people groups
- Low volume-many calories- easy transport
- Smart use of raw materials
- Good control of food value chain
- Low energy production process
- Extended shelf life (+4 years)
- Use under any circumstances, even war, natural disasters, calamities, human mass migrations or space expeditions
The ready to eat meals concept dates back to 1980. Since then, food perspectives changed and the ever-changing
consumers’ needs require innovation and customer-centric products. Seen as food solution to health and humanitarian
crises current options, such as Soylent, SOS Food Lab, MRE – Department of Defense U.S., Valley Food Storage, Ready
Wise and Legacy Food Storage, MRE comes in powder form, requires water, pots and heaters to be prepared and hence
do not provide a feasible solution.
These foods according to testimonials are not only made with natural ingredients, require effort in preparation in terms of time, place, kitchen tools, heaters, hygienically environment, have added preservatives, they are rich in sugars and refined oils plus other unhealthy ingredients are used together with salt surplus. Due to difficulty of preparation, this kind of food often can’t be eaten and is thrown away (especially in post disaster areas). Additionally, due to lack of proper instructions hundreds of kilos powder is thrown away.
There is also the issue of too much plastic used for packaging, so tons of waste is not professionally managed. Furthermore, army forces and salvation teams are facing an excess of carbohydrates to reach the necessary calorie level in their food intakes. Similarly, space missions are in their early stages but still need nourishment for their crews. Food in zero gravity is totally different than food on Earth.
Advancements were made but currently without ground-breaking results. Our solution, ODA – Optimum Dynamic Activities is the 1st concept of ready-to-eat nutritionally controlled food one-bite tablets, no water and heating needed, easy to transport and store. We aimed to provide an affordable, safe, healthy and nutritious food supply in the face of demographic change from an increasing population and better food safety.
The ODA tablets are designed to be used in zero gravity.
Our solution allows efficient use of raw materials and a sustainable production process. There are significant cost savings, resulting from reduced food waste, because of better suitability and control of food served according to the nutrition needs. ODA is a new form of nutrition that responds to present and future needs and the faster we bring it on the market, the benefit of all will be immediately noticed.
The time is now, and we have to understand that no matter how far we get, no matter if we'll conquer space through Elon Musk and NASA or develop sci-fi tech, food will remain an indispensable need until we’ll be able to control atoms. Tablet food opens a new way of using “Earth’s garden” in the note of today’s challenges such as: accelerated growth of the world's population, climate change that affects agricultural land productivity, pollution that affects Earth's waters, health crisis and last but not least, sustainability.
New Times, New Foods
We are living in a time of change and we all, consciously or unconsciously, embrace the era of digitalization and innovation like
never before but no matter how far we get, no matter if we’ll conquer space or develop sci-fi technologies, food will remain a
need; it is our fuel for the body and the mind.
Due to the speed of technology evolution, the need of using all the resources as efficient as possible, tailored food and global dynamic changes, food industry is in a continuous search of conscious innovation and development.
Most probably, the Covid 19 will continue to impact us and bring more uncertainty. The pandemic crisis was the catalyst for
rapid change and it presents the opportunity for us to collectively shift priorities, refocus on what matters and accelerate to a
brighter future. This crisis challenges us to radically rethink how we make decisions and who benefits from the outcomes – and
how to develop and apply technology in new and meaningful ways for the benefit of all.
