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.

Because of the simplicity of the preparation it is one of the first food preparation techniques taught to Shugilii apprentices. Usually the preparation has a nutty flavor due to the remaining traces of incompatible proteins. Only the best Shugilii can make a completely flavorless Argu.

This jelly serves to keep a sour-sweet cold mousse inside the bowl. A layer of sugared fruit is then arranged on top of the mousse.

Not entirely Vilani in principle, this sweet is much inspired by Solomani desserts. Nonetheless, Arkhaala is rarely found outside Vland Sector.

A bio-engineered artificial organism, the bio-still is a genetically-engineered life-form, which will eat organic garbage and excrete alcohol. The bio-still appears as a roughly egg-shaped body, 900mm high and 600mm wide, with a mouth on top and a pair of stout feet on the bottom. The still has a nipple on its front, from which the alcohol is drawn. The bio-still stands still for most of the day, however it will occasionally shuffle its feet and jiggle around. The still can produce around 40 litres of liquid every 5 days. The process of fermentation takes 5 days, after which time the alcoholic liquid can be drawn off via the nipple. The alcoholic fluid is around 14% ethanol by volume. It is essentially tasteless and needs to be flavoured with wine, beer, cider or mixed-drink flavouring. Bio-stills are illegal on a few worlds and are viewed with suspicion on many others.

Deep Caviar are the eggs produced by a large ocean-dwelling fish locally referred to as a Leviathan, and referred to the greater interstellar society as Jenghean Leviathan, found in the depths beyond the continental shelf of Jenghe (Spinward Marches 1810).

The surface of Jenghe is mostly ocean with small island communities which depend on commercial fishing as their main export. Leviathan produce eggs four times per year and a fully mature female can have as much as 60 liters within her egg producing organs if harvested correctly.

The harvest and export of Leviathan parts to include the egg are regulated by the planetary government. The semi-strict regulation prevents over harvesting and drives up the export market. Luxury restaurants on Regina are famous for high end deep caviar imported from Jenghe. It is not uncommon for a liter of eggs purchased at dockside on Jenghe for 10 credits to sell on Regina (Spinward Marches 1910) for 5 to 10 times that amount.

Type Foods
Tech Level TL–3
Cost Cr1
Size 0.01 liters
Weight 1.0 gram

Fiwai'al is a much sought-after and expensive plant-based oil used both for cooking and for the manufacture of perfumes.

Derived from a plant grown only on Aslan world of Hroilr (Dark Nebula 1536), which is controlled by the Keiouwyaouryakh Clan. Keiouwyaouryakh closely guards the secret of the art and science of cultivating the Fiwai'al plant and the methods used to refine Fiwai'al as a spice and how to distill Fiwai'al essence for use in perfumery.

It is rarely sold outside the Hierate, since humans find its smell unattractive and it is toxic when taken internally by Humans. Some Solomani Humans have remarked that Fiwai'al perfume smells like panther piss.

Fiwai'al often commands a price equivalent to Cr1.0 per gram. Short-term fluctuations in Hierate stock markets often drive Fiwai'al product prices sky-high, and the long-term price patterns of Fiwai'al commodities are notoriously hard to predict.

The food can then be removed from the caddy or eaten straight from the container, using the spoon provided.

SnakTubes come in twenty-four different varieties, including fol ragout with purée of potato, Terran noodles, with sautéed chicken and mushrooms, Lanceshark and cheese dumplings in tomato broth, namako and pork paella, lentil and Leviemeat soup with croutons, and duck and sausage gumbo, with white rice.

Survival Food Ration

Survival Food Ration

Tech Level TL–12
Cost Cr6
Size 1 liter
Weight 750g
Manufacturer Logan Subsistence Company

The Logan Subsistence Company of Garda-Vilis (Spinward Marches 1118) is proud to announce the introduction of its new line of Survival Food Ration, a compact, long-lasting ration.

The unopened chocolate-based ration weighs 600 grams in a resealable plastic container which can double as a cup and water container and is priced at 5 Imperial Credits per survival packet. The multi-use packet and the Vargr hard biscuit packets weight 750 grams in a resealable plastic box, and costs 6 Imperial Credits per ration packet.

The primary component of each ration packet is four 125 gram individually wrapped bars, with each bar providing 600 calories and a balanced portion of the required vitamins and minerals required for the typical human. Included with the four bars are three powdered drink packets supplying Vitamin C in a highly palatable form when mixed with a half-liter of water, and a supplementary vitamin tablet in addition to the vitamins contained in the bars to ensure an adequate vitamin intake. The bars are composed of a mixture of chocolate, dehydrated milk powder, and grains, stabilized to tolerate elevated temperatures, and if desired, can be used to produce a chocolate drink by dissolving the bar in warm water. The four bars together supply sufficient calories to sustain the average size human for one day of moderate activity.

A multi-use bar for both humans and Vargr is similar in packaging and weight, with the primary difference being the use of powdered dried meat instead of the chocolate and additional use of animal fats in the formulation. These bars also supply 600 calories per bar and are palatable to both humans and Vargr. The supplementary beverage packets contain both the Vitamin C fortified beverage packets and three additional packets of powdered meat broth enriched with salt for the use of the Vargr, although humans also find the broth nourishing and palatable. Two vitamin tablets are provided, one for Vargr use and one for human consumption.

A special Vargr only ration packet is available containing four 150-gram hard biscuits containing a total of 2400 calories and a balanced vitamin and mineral intake without the need of supplementary tablets or beverage packets. The four biscuits are individually wrapped in waterproof packets and may be carried easily in the pocket. This packet would not be suitable for human use, however, except in an emergency.

Logan Subsistence is in the process of testing the ration packets for use by the Droyne and whether a supplemental vitamin will be needed. It appears that both the chocolate-based human bar and the meat-based multi-use bar are suitable for Droyne use as well, with a preference being shown for the chocolate-based bar. Further testing is proceeding, and Logan Subsistence is committed to supplying the highest quality of survival food products to the widest number of consumers for competitive prices.

The Trake is a small berry common to many worlds of the Imperium. It has a meaty, sweet body enclosing a single large seed and grows on a low, thorny bush. Trakes have been grown in the Imperial core since the time of the First Imperium.

Introduced late to the Spinward Marches Sector, they have flourished on only a few worlds, notably Pysadi (Spinward Marches 3008) and Alell (Spinward Marches 1706), although they are cultivated on many others.

In addition to being eaten, the berry can be use to produce Atrake, a fruity wine.
