Alpha Nutrition Formulas --  ENFs in Space

Elemental nutrient formulas (ENF) represent the ultimate reduction of food and have been called "Space Diets". Many years ago, NASA wondered how to feed astronauts on long space journeys and sponsored ENF development to define the minimum weight and volume requirement for human food. A variety of ENFs were designed and tested by various research and commercial groups demonstrating the human volunteers did well with pure nutrient formulas. Other researchers pursued the idea of precisely controlled nutrition and yet others considered an elemental formula to the solutions for food allergy, malabsorption and other digestive tract malfunctions.

The traffic of non-nutrient chemicals through the body can be thought of as the "overburden" or cost of food intake. Reducing food-processing cost is a form of metabolic rest that has therapeutic applications in many diseases. By the early 80's it became apparent that there were new opportunities to apply ENFs to solving common health problems. A new theory of food allergy emerged to explain common and chronic diseases such as asthma, eczema, hives, migraine headaches, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome and a number of other conditions. The allergens in food are mostly proteins, so that an ENF containing amino acids, rather than proteins would avoid the problem.

Now, ENFs are used to manage serious digestive diseases and to provide adequate nourishment when eating food was undesirable or impossible. Early formulas were often administered by tube feeding. Taste and texture were not important. Early applications of ENFs included pre- and post-operative nutrition, the treatment of diarrhea, malabsorption, malnutrition, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, pancreatic disease, and short gut syndrome.

If food problems are suspected of causing an illness, a trial of clearing on an ENF can confirm or deny food involvement usually within 10-14 days. If the ENF clearing proved successful, the Alpha Nutrition Program style of food reintroduction could become a standard method of redefining a safe diet.
