Abstract/Description:
Through canning processes, vast quantitites of vitamin-rich foods have gone from Florida to military forces on foreign soils, as well as to store shelves. Since citrus juices have been recognized by dietetic science as an "tonic," Florida with over 400 millions of cans of citrus products in 1940-41 season had a hand in spreading health to a war-mobilized nation. For the 1941-42 season, Florida has added 2 new forms of citrus preserves. Other canned products include such vegetables as tomatoes, beans, corn, and peas potatoes ; seafoods such as shrimp and oysters ; nut butters ; and jams and jellies.
