Description[edit | edit source]

Fried okra is best known for being the first food eaten in space. In 1961, NASA was preparing to launch the Freedom 7, which would catapult the first American into space. As only one other human had ever been to space, engineers were unsure about what impact the environment would have on humans. As such, they equipped the spacecraft with fried okra, believing that the food would be sure to enhance morale regardless of how poorly the mission went. As fried okra is rich in Vitamin K, engineers believed that the snack could also increase bone density, which would be important if the astronaut were to experience sudden onset osteoporosis due to the harsh nature of space.

To NASA's delight, the mission was a huge success, and in the years that followed children became eager to try the food that protected the lives of their heroes.
