Equipment category: F - Food. Nutrients[edit]

Every civilization develops increasingly sophisticated methods of growing, cultivating, preparing, and preserving food and beverages. Most species within Charted Space eat largely compatible foodstuffs which include proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, and other micro-nutrients. Cuisines vary with each world: tastes, metabolisms, and preparation techniques abound and depend on a spectrum of differences ranging down to trace nutrient availability.

However, a few species have unconventional or even exotic biochemistries and require food of different varieties, sometimes organic materials with different chirality, chemical composition, pH acidity, or even variations of the basic substances of life.

The items noted as "(nutriment)" are the lightly processed food from the corresponding plant or animal. In other cases, the agricultural derivative of specific plants or animals is given a unique name.
