Aim 1. Determine the degradation kinetics of vitamins B1 and C in spaceflight foods. The representative spaceflight foods will be produced and stored under appropriate conditions for 2 years, and the degradation kinetics of vitamins B1 and C will be systematically determined.

Aim 2. Develop robust computational models to predict degradation of vitamins B1 and C in

spaceflight foods. Mathematical models will be developed to simulate and predict the degradation of vitamins B1 and C in spaceflight foods, and their robustness will be assessed and validated. The results will be analyzed based on the nature of different spaceflight foods to develop guiding principles on how to minimize vitamin degradation in spaceflight foods.
