The Israeli military made precise calculations of Gaza's daily calorie needs to avoid malnutrition during a blockade imposed on the Palestinian territory between 2007 and mid-2010, according to files the defence ministry released on Wednesday under a court order.
Israel says it never limited how many calories were available to Gaza, but critics claimed the document was proof the government limited food supplies to put pressure on Hamas.
At the height of the blockade Israel also maintained a list of foods that were permitted and banned from Gaza.
Major Guy Inbar, an Israeli military spokesman, said the calculation, based on a person's average requirement of 2,300 calories a day, was meant to identify warning signs to help avoid a humanitarian crisis, and that it was never used to restrict the flow of food.

The only way to get rich in Gaza these days is to dig. A decent smuggling tunnel can earn its owner up to £200,000 per month in fees - so long as they're not buried alive.
The level of illegal underground activity is quite staggering. It's like a giant remake of the Great Escape.
But that is hardly surprising, since some would call this the world's largest prison camp. This week's Israeli assault on a Gaza-bound flotilla of activists and aid has brought that reality home only too clearly.
By dropping troops on civilian vessels in international waters, and killing at least nine people, Israel has lost many friends and made even more enemies.
But it has also served to remind the world, once again, of the barmy situation which persists in Israel's bottom-left corner.
There, in an area smaller than the New Forest, 1.5 million Palestinians are sealed off from the outside world in what is fast approaching a madhouse. How has this internment come about?
