[This wiki page describes the recently released version "Halloween 2019", in which there were no significant changes made in the cooking mechanic, but only the redesign of the Nut and Vegetable food items, while a few nut-based recipes and the Onigiri Ration of Food reward have been added. You will find the crafting recipes for the ammos and bombs of SPS-PD in their separate alchemy page.]
In addition to creating potions and blandfruits in exactly the same manner as Sprouted PD (3 seeds or 1 Blandfruit + 1 seed), Alchemy Pots are now very often used to combine various food items and other ingredients together into meals and combat-related items like ammo and bombs. As a matter of fact in SPS-PD alchemy pots are much more often used as Kitchens and Workshops than as Alchemy Pots.
Most cooked foods are more filling than their individual components or their simpler “non cooked” counterparts like chargrilled meat and frozen carpaccio. They become essential to players deep in the dungeon, as common food items satisfy much less hunger than before. Food can be a scarce resource in some parts of the dungeon, however, but also eating lots of food at once can now grant the "Overfed" buff to increase the hero's attack. Additionally, a high-levelled Alchemist's Toolkit can give players up to two more slots for inputting ingredients, allowing the cooking of certain super foods with many buffs and/or cures like the six different types of Pills, Foamed Beverage and especially Hamburger and Perfect Food, which would normally be unobtainable (see images for the different versions of the alchemy pot: 3-slot by default, 4-slot with a +5 toolkit, and 5-slot with a +10 toolkit). On the other hand, it has lost its function to help brew more potions with less seeds, and no ammo, bomb or potion recipe needs more than 3 slots in the alchemy pot, so it has become practically a Culinary Toolkit in SPS-PD.
Be careful about what the hero inputs, as almost all trial-and-error recipes will result in the creation of a "Garbage" item, that hurts the hero when eaten, barely satisfies any hunger at all, and can only be sold for 10 gold.
In the hero stats’ tab there is a hunger counter that can range from 0 to 800. After 600 the hero will become “Hungry”, which has no effect and is just a warning that “Starving” at 800 is near, which causes appr. -1% of HP every 10 turns (in integer numbers, so it will always be -1 HP in low levels, and will increase following the hero's HP increase). Hunger increases by 1 per 1 turn, but practically in the counter by 10 every 10 turns. One thing to note is that if hunger is equal to 800, the amount of hunger reduced by food is multiplied by 1.5. As it will become apparent in the following section, scrolls, potions, meat, berries, mushrooms, seeds, clean water, honey, gel, stone ores, rations, and nuts can all be used as ingredients in cooking.
Easiest Recipes Edit
The reader who will go through the whole page will realise that in SPS-PD there are 78 different edible or consumable items, if we also count the 14 different Blandfruit types, while 43 of them can get cooked by following a cooking recipe (or 57, again if we count also the blandfruit recipes). It is not always easy to have the wiki Cooking page also open while playing, so here is a list with 3 of the relatively easiest cooking recipes of SPS-PD, as they don't require an Alchemist's Toolkit for its extra slots and all their ingredients are common. These recipes can also serve as an introduction to SPS-PD's cooking for the new player.
- Chicken Nugget: Stone Ore + Meat (Hunger -170)
- Herb Meat: Seed + Meat (Hunger -180, also cures debuffs)
- Rice: Clean Water + any Ration (Hunger -450)
Food items and Recipes Edit
All food items apart from Garbage has a minor or major healing effect (technically, even Garbage has one, but the healing is less than the damage done). In the following list, when an item is described as a “Random Drop” with "No recipe", that means practically that it can't be a product of cooking in an alchemy pot and is only found, sold or dropped in the dungeon, or it becomes safe for eating by other means. Apart from plain Honey, almost all other types of cooked food (including recipes with honey) as well as rations of both sizes and pasties are sold in the Dolya Town food shop of Cooker M.O.S., but other random drops like meat or nuts aren’t, nor is garbage or cooked blandfruits, chargrilled meat, frozen carpaccio or pet food. Nevertheless, berries, eatable nut plants, nuts and pet food are sold in the northwest shop of Dolya Town.
- A recipe the requires “Meat” will accept (plain) Meat, Mystery Meat, Chargrilled Meat, or Frozen Carpaccio.
- A recipe that requires “Ration” will accept an Overpriced Food Ration, a regular Food Ration or a Pasty (or any holiday version of Pasty), but not the [Onigiri] food ration
- Unless a number like 2, 3 etc. is specifically mentioned, the amount of ingredients is always 1.
All cooked items apart from Chargrilled Meat, Cooked Blandfruit and Frozen Carpaccio can't be recooked in an alchemy pot: for example, 1 Eatable Nut Plant and 2 Herb Meats will produce Garbage and not Kebab, even though apparently Herb Meat contains meat. All food items in each subsection are listed in order of hunger satisfaction.
Uncookable in an alchemy pot Edit
Clean Water Edit
|Clean water made by dew, usually used in cooking.|
- Recipe: None, but one drop gets produced each time the Refine option of the dew viial is selected.
Hunger -1, due to its minimal nutritional value it is considered a food item only in the sense that it is a necessary ingredient of many cooking recipes.
|Seed of Nut Plant|
|Throw this seed to the place you want to grow a nut plant.|
|A nut plant.|
Neither the Seed of the Nut Plant or the Nut Plant itself are edible, but displaying them is helpful for the description that follows.
|Common dungeon nut. It can be used in cooking.|
- Recipe: None, but always one drops after stepping on a Nut Plant.
Important recent change: The familiar dungeon nut of Sprouted PD has been completely redesigned in SPS-PD's recent update. First of all, trampled high grass does not drop nuts anymore, but only Seeds of Nut Plant which are not edible (be also careful not to put these seeds in the recipes that require Nut, because they will produce garbage, the Seed of Nut Plant is stored in the seed pouch though, so it will not be easily confused with a Nut). Planting or just throwing this seed on plantable ground will grow a Nut Plant, which after it gets trampled drops always a Nut and an Eatable Nut Plant, which are both ingredients for many cooking recipes. Note also: a) that the Seed of Nut Plant is a much rarer drop from high grass than the dungeon nut of Sprouted PD, and becomes common only with upgraded Sandals of Nature equipped, b) the food item Nut of SPS-PD has the sprite of the toasted dungeon nut of Sprouted PD, while the Seed of Nut Plant of SPS-PD has the sprite of the dungeon nut of Sprouted PD, and c) burning a Nut has no effect anymore, so the Toasted Dungeon Nut food item has been removed from current SPS-PD.
Hunger –10, with 10% chance of giving Barkskin. Practically used as an ingredient for many coking recipes, not for its nutritional value or buff.
Dream Leaf Edit
|A common vegetable by dreamfoil|
- Recipe: None
The Dreamfoil plant now also drops a Dream Leaf editble item. Hunger -20, but cures many debuffs, some of them not cured by stepping on the Dreeamfoil plant (Armor Break, Attack Down, Bleeding, Crippled, Poisoned, Weakness, but not Drowsy, Slowed and Vertigo). Practically it is eaten for the cures it provides and not for its nutritional value.
Heal Grass Edit
|A common vegetable by sungrass|
- Recipe: None
The Sungrass plant now also drops a Heal Grass edible item. Hunger -20, but applies the Regeneration buff (not Herbal Healing), effectively doubling the available uses of the sungrass seed for healing. Practically it is eaten for its healing effect and not for its nutritional value.
Star Flower Edit
|A common vegetable by starflower|
- Recipe: None
The Starflower plant now also drops a Star Flower edible item. Hunger -20, but applies at the same time the Arcane, +25% Attack Up, +25% Defense Up and Target Shoot buffs, all for 30 turns. Practically it is eaten for the buffs it provides and not for its nutritional value.
[Note: As their effects are the same with Sprouted PD, Sprouted's game descriptions which give all the important details about their effects are also displayed. Unlike mushrooms, berries can't be a product of cooking.]
Black berry Edit
| A delectable berry. This berry is full with life energy.
This dark red berry grants Regeneration, and occasionally Mind Vision. Invaluable in boss fights and on tough floors.
Blue berry Edit
| A mysterious blue berry. It is full of knowledge.
This deep blue berry reveals the map of the current floor, [including secret doors and traps (not in SPS-PD)]. It also reveals all items. Occasionally grants Regeneration.
In SPS-PD it doesn't reveal secret doors and secret traps, but grants the Treasure Search ability that shows all loot in the floor, apart from that in hidden rooms.
Cloud berry Edit
| A delectable and light berry. It is full with wind energy.
This bright pink berry grants Haste for a short time, occasionally Levitation, and rarely Regeneration.
Moon berry Edit
| A hearty blue-green berry. It is full with power.
This light blue berry grants Moon Fury: The next hit with any weapon or wand will do quadruple damage. Occasionally adds Barkskin.
Full Moon berry Edit
|Full Moon berry|
| In the darkest hours of night a full moon berry grows. It was blessed by Selemene.
This rare berry is a more effective Moonberry, extending the damage multiplier to multiple hits depending on maximum depth reached.
[Note: Selemene is the goddess of the moon in the Dota 2 game.]
- Recipe: None
Random Drops, with the sole exception of the Full Moon Berry, which is only found in the "Prison reward bag", which the 100th Mossy Skeleton drops in the Prison Challenge as a challenge reward. Hunger –50, they cause various beneficial effects each, which are almost exactly the same with Sprouted PD and were displayed in their game descriptions (with a minor difference in the Blue Berry), and most have a chance to cause Regeneration. Practically eaten for their buffs and not for their nutritional value.
Mystery Meat Edit
|Eat at your own risk!|
- Recipe: None
Random Drop. Hunger –75, it has a high chance of randomly causing the Burning, Poisoning, Rooting, or Slowness debuffs like in Sprouted PD, but it does this less often than in that mod. It sometimes doesn't cause any debuffs in SPS-PD, but when it does, its poisoning can reduce the hero's HP from full to almost zero, so eating it raw should generally be avoided. However, it works fine in any recipe that requires meat, and if there is not an alchemy pot in close access, there are many ways to burn or freeze it and make it safe chargrilled meat or frozen carpaccio.
Frozen Carpaccio Edit
|It's a piece of frozen raw meat. The only way to eat it is by cutting thin slices of it. And this way it's suprisingly good.|
- Recipe: None
It is obtained by freezing Meat or Mystery Meat. Hunger –85, it can cause randomly either Barkskin, Healing or Invisibility.
|Just like normal meat sold in the market.|
- Recipe: None
Random Drop. Hunger –100, in theory it has a low chance of randomly causing any one of the Burning, Poisoning, Rooting, or Slowness debuffs like in Sprouted PD, but when it applies a debuff, that is almost always Poisoning. Although its chance of applying debuffs is low, like mystery meat its poisoning can reduce the hero's HP from full to almost zero, so if the hero eats it raw, make sure that there are healing items in the inventory or dew in the dew vial. Mildly dangerous, it should be eaten raw only when there are no means to make it safe (burning / freezing / cooking).
Chargrilled meat Edit
|It looks like a decent steak.|
- Recipe: None
It is otained by burning Meat or Mystery Meat, Hunger –100, no extra effects.
Golden Nut Bless by Developer Edit
|Golden Nut Bless by Developer|
|Super secret nut made by developer hmdzl001. Eat it!|
- Recipe: None
Unique edible item that is granted as a reward if the hero completes all challenge depths with above 100 kills in each. Hunger –100. It grants either +1 Str, +50 HP or +2 Str, +30 HP permanently. Obviously it is eaten for its big benefit in stats and not for its nutritional value.
[Onigiri] "Ration of Food" Edit
|[Onigiri] Ration of Food|
|Nothing fancy here: dried meat, some biscuits - things like that.|
- Recipe: None
It is much more than a ration in its effects, as even though it satisfies a decent amount of hunger, -200, its benefits lay more in the Fushigi No Bless buff it offers for 150 turns, which increases the hero's Luck by +5 (the effect is equal to having a +5 Lucky Badge equipped), and his/her Strength by +1. It is only available as a reward after offering a food ration, a berry and a piece of meat to the Alfred, Abbey and Abeys NPC (he is only one NPC with the first name, holding his two pets that have the other two names) in Dolya Town, which can be done many times. Note that Happy Alfred is the developer of Fushigi No Pixel Dungeon, from which the item's sprite and all names related with this item (buff and three NPCs) have been borrowed. This food item's name is just "Ration of Food" in SPS-PD, but in Fushigi No PD food rations are named "Onigiri" and have this sprite, so it is used here for the SPS-PD item to distinguish it from the regular food ration.
Note that the alchemy pot does not consider it a type of food ration and using it in any recipe that requires "Ration" will produce garbage.
|This is authentic Cornish pasty with traditional filling of beef and potato.|
- Recipe: None
Random Drop, Hunger –400, no extra effects. As it gains only +50 hunger satisfaction in its plain cooked alternative as Rice, it is the only random food drop that is not wasted if eaten uncooked. As pasty changes form with the holidays, it is available as the default pasty only during half of the year, on February, March, May, August and September. Its holiday versions (which all have extra beneficial effects) are:
Candy Cane Edit
| A huge sugary sweet candy cane! It's big enough to fill you up, and the sugar might give your wands a tiny bit of extra charge too.
Availabe only during December, also grants the Recharging buff for 4 turns.
Pumpkin Pie Edit
| A great big slice of pumpkin pie! Its sweet and spicy flavor will fill you up and give you a tiny bit of healing.
Available only during October, also grants Healing of up to 10% of max HP.
Rainbow Egg Edit
| Although this thing looks small, eating it can completely eliminate your hunger and make you energetic.
Available only during April, also grants the Bless buff.
Roast Turkey Edit
| A roasted turkey. Eating it can restore your hunger and make you faster.
Available only during November, also grants the Levitation and Haste buffs, both for 3 turns.
School Work Edit
|This is some kind of school work in summer vacation. Finish it and you will be full with knowledge.|
Available only during June and July, also grants Illumination for 50 turns and cures Blindness and Vertigo. Formerly named Food of Knowledge.
Spring Festival Food Edit
|Spring Festival Food|
| The rice cake, the dumpling, and the dumplings are filled with the steamer. As one of the traditional foods of the new spring festival, it can completely eliminate your hunger and make you full of determination.
Happy Spring Festival!
Available only during January, also grants Regeneration.
Recipes that require only 2 or 3 slots of the alchemy pot Edit
[Note: In previous versions of SPS-PD all recipes with Eatable Nut Plants (formerly Vegetable) were cooked with mushrooms instead, but this is not possible anymore.]
|Only garbage in here.|
- Recipe: Any combination that isn't included in this list and in the list of the other Alchemy page.
Hunger –1, it causes Damage equal to 20% of the hero’s max HP. It's recommended that the hero just sells any instead of causing him/herself harm by eating it.
|A simple gel, can be used on burning or cooking.|
- Recipe: Clean Water + Stone Ore
Hunger –10, no extra effects, practically used as an ingredient for Honey Gel, and not eaten for its nutritional value. Players should not take into account the game description's mention of burning, as Gel has neither any effect on the Burning debuff, nor is in any way changed by burning.
Honey Water Edit
|Made by honey and water.|
- Recipe: Honey + 2 Clean Waters
Hunger –10, it Adds from +4 to +8 maximum HP permanently. Removes Crippled, Bleeding, Weakness and Poison debuffs and heals up to half the hero’s maximum HP.
[Note: As their effects are the same with those of the mushrooms in Sprouted PD, with the only exception of the Green Spore mushroom that doesn't exist there, Sprouted PD's game descriptions which give all the important details about their effects are also displayed. Unlike Sprouted PD though, mushrooms can also be a product of cooking.]
Blue Milk mushroom Edit
|Blue Milk mushroom|
| This mushroom oozes a milky blue substance. You feel your senses slipping. It can improve your speed, and heal everyone in this place.
Slows all mobs when eaten, Hastes hero, gives both parties Regeneration.
- Recipe: Clean Water + Eatable Nut Plant + Sungrass seed
Death Cap mushroom Edit
|Death Cap mushroom|
| A deadly-looking fungus found growing in the dungeon. Eat at your own risk. It is too dangerous.
All mobs on the level lose approximately half their health. Hero loses 1/4 of current health and is temporarily Blinded.
- Recipe: Clean Water + Eatable Nut Plant + Sorrowmoss seed
Earthstar mushroom Edit
| A tiny bit of an unknown world grows in this mushroom. It doesn't feel like a place you'd like to visit... It looks like a blade.
All mobs on the level - and the Hero, to a lesser extent - get the Bleeding and Crippled debuffs.
- Recipe: Clean Water + Eatable Nut Plant + Earhroot seed
Golden Jelly mushroom Edit
|Golden Jelly mushroom|
| A gelatinous fungus covered in a sticky ooze. Looks like it might cause some havoc if eaten.
Roots all mobs and gives the Hero Vertigo for a short time.
- Recipe: Clean Water + Eatable Nut Plant + Stormvine seed
Green Spore mushroom Edit
|Green Spore mushroom|
|This is new mushroom. It is full with Dew Power.|
- Recipe: Clean Water + Eatable Nut Plant + Dewcatcher seed
It grants the Dew Drop buff for 100 turns.
Jack O' Lantern mushroom Edit
|Jack O' Lantern mushroom|
| A strange heat emanates from this mushroom. Unleashing the fire within could be dangerous. It is easy to start fire.
This cheery looking pumpk- ahh, mushroom has a high chance to Burn mobs, and a low chance to Burn the hero...
- Recipe: Clean Water + Eatable Nut Plant + Firebloom seed
Pixie Parasol mushroom Edit
|Pixie Parasol mushroom|
| These mushrooms seem to spin in front of your eyes. You hear fleeting laughter.
This calming blue mushroom puts all mobs to Sleep, makes the hero Dizzy, and gives the hero long-lasting Regeneration.
- Recipe: Recipe: Clean Water + Eatable Nut Plant + Dreamfoil seed
All mushrooms are also random drops in the dungeon. Hunger –10. They cause various effects, which are the same with Sprouted PD and were displayed in their game descriptions, apart from the new Green Spore mushroom, which grants a Dew Drop buff with short duration. Practically eaten when their effects are needed and not for their nutritional value.
Pet Food Edit
|Every pet loves it, that is why it is called pet food.|
- Recipe: Clean Water + 2 Nuts
Hunger -10 with no extra effects when eaten by the hero, but Fully Heals any Pet while giving it 120 XP, so it's wasted when the hero eats it. When classic hero skins are chosen, 1 pet food is a starting food item for all classes.
Honey Gel Edit
|Honey and gel combine perfectly.|
- Recipe: Honey + Gel
Hunger –20, it Adds from +4 to +8 maximum HP permanently. It removes the Crippled, Bleeding, Weakness, and Poison debuffs, and Heals the hero up to half his/her maximum HP.
Eatable Nut Plant (formerly Vegetable) Edit
|Eatable Nut Plant|
|A common vegetable.|
- Recipe: 2 Potions + Nut / Stone Ore + Nut
Important recent change: Trampled high grass does not drop Vegetables anymore (the previous name of Eatable Nut Plant), but only Seeds of Nut Plant. Planting or just throwing this seed on plantable ground will grow a Nut Plant, which after it gets trampled drops always a Nut and an Eatable Nut Plant, which are both ingredients for many cooking recipes. Note that the Eatable Nut Plant shares the same sprite with the Nut Plant, but the plant can't be an item in the hero's inventory, as it dissolves after getting trampled.
Apart from getting dropped always from nut plants, thieves also have a 10% chance to drop it, and also Albino Giant Piranhas after some of these initially spawned in the Caves challenge depth get killed. Hunger –20, no special effects. Due to its low nutritional value and its rarity it is much better to be used as an ingredient in the many recipes it is included, some of which produce high quality food items.
|It is made by honeypot.|
- Recipe: Honeypot, Shattered or normal
Hunger –50, it Adds from +4 to +8 maximum HP permanently. It removes the Crippled, Bleeding, Weakness, and Poison debuffs, and Heals up to half the hero’s maximum HP.
Vegetable Soup Edit
|Vegetable soup is prepared using vegetables and leaf vegetables as main ingredients. Some fruits can also be used, such as tomato, squash and others.|
- Recipe: Clean Water + 2 Eatable Nut Plants
Hunger –90, it removes the Crippled, Bleeding, Weakness, and Poison debuffs.
|A honey icecream.|
- Recipe: Clean water + Icecap seed + Honey
Hunger –90, it Adds from +5 to +12 maximum HP permanently, and also removes the Poison, Weakness, Bleeding, Burning debuffs, and Heals up to half the hero’s maximum HP.
Fruit Salad Edit
|This food is made by fruit and water. In this world, you don't need salad.|
- Recipe: Clean Water + 2 Berries
Hunger –130, it Heals 33% of maximum HP, with the possibility of Overfilling the hero’s health.
Blandfruit cooked Edit
|Raw: Blandfruit / Cooked: (Seed name)fruit|
| Raw: So dry and insubstantial, perhaps stewing it with another ingredient would improve it.
Cooked: The fruit has plumped up from its time soaking in the pot and has even absorbed the properties of the seed it was cooked with. It looks ready to be eaten!
The raw Blandfruit fruit can be cooked with any seed to produce different types of cooked blandfruits, a few combinations are useless or of low value though:
- + Blandfruit seed / Seed Pod seed > the seed gets spent and a still uncooked blandfruit is produced (don"t do it).
- + Blindweed > Blindfruit, grants the Attack Up and Invisibility buffs for 15 turns, doesn't shatter when thrown.
- + Dewcatcher / Upgrade Eater > Heartfruit, functions like a potion of Life overfilling the hero's HP bar, doesn't shatter when thrown.
- + Dreamfoil > Dreamfruit, grants the Holy Light buff for 10 turns and Immune to Gases buff for 15 turns, when thrown shatters and has the effects of a potion of Purification.
- + Earthroot > Earthfruit, when eaten grants the Imbued with Earth buff for 30 turns, when thrown shatters and has the effects of a potion of paralytic Gas.
- + Fadeleaf > Fadefruit, grants the Treasure Search buff for 5 turns and the Mind Vision buff for 40 turns, doesn't shatter when thrown.
- + Firebloom > Firefruit, when eaten grants the Imbued with Fire buff for 30 turns, when thrown shatters and has the effects of a potion of Liquid Flame.
- + Icecap > Icefruit, when eaten grants the Imbued with Ice buff for 50 turns, when thrown shatters and has the effects of a potion of Frost.
- + Phase Pitcher > Mightyfruit, adds +15 HP to the hero's max HP but not +1 Str. like it does in Sprouted PD, doesn't shatter when thrown.
- + Rotberry > Rotfruit, adds +1 Str. like in Sprouted PD, doesn't shatter when thrown.
- + Sorrowmoss > Sorrowfruit, when eaten grants the Imbued the Imbued with Toxicity buff for 30 turns, when thrown shatters and has the effects of a potion of Toxic Gas.
- + Starflower > Starfruit, doesn't automatically level up the hero but adds randomly an amount of XP between the hero's current gathered XP and the hero's max XP (the hero should better eat it a little before levelling up, to secure the immedate stat upgrading), and also grants the Bless buff for 20 turns. It doesn't shatter when thrown.
- + Stormvine > Stormfruit, when eaten grants the Levitation buff for 20 turns and the Defense Up buff for 10 turns, when thrown shatters and releases Confusion Gas like a potion of Levitation would.
- + Sungrass > Sunfruit, functions like a Healing potion, doesn't shatter when thrown.
Most of the blandfruit outcomes when they are eaten and thrown are similar with those of Shattered PD but with the additional potion side effects or changes of SPS-PD, apart from the fact that when they are thrown, they don't leave blandfruit chunks. All cooked blandfruits satisfy +150 hunger. A summary table follows:
|Seed||Blandfruit produced||Effect (when double: eaten / thrown)|
|Blindweed||Blindfruit||Invisibilty potion / unshatterable|
|Dewcatcher||Heartfruit||Life potion / unshatterable|
|Earthroot||Earthfruit||Imbued with Earth / Paralytic gas potion|
|Fadeleaf||Fadefruit||Mind Vision potiion / unshatterable|
|Firebloom||Firefruit||Imbued with Fire / Liquid Flame potion|
|Icecap||Icefruit||Imbued with Ice / Frost potion|
|Phase Pitcher||Mightyfruit||+15 HP / unshatterable|
|Rotberry||Rotfruit||+1 Strength / unshatterable|
|Seed Pod||uncooked Blandfruit||none|
|Sorrowmoss||Sorrowfruit||Imbued with Toxicity / Toxic gas potion|
|Starflower||Starfruit||Experience potion / unshatterable|
|Sungrass||Sunfruit||Healing potion / unshatterable|
- Hunger –150, due to its rarity it is basically eaten in specific circumstances for its various beneficial effects in combination with the different seeds and not for its nutritional value. Also, even if the player wants the hero to do it, blandfruits cannot be eaten raw (there is a game message: "You can't bear to eat it raw!").

It doesn’t have any special benefits when eaten, but it sells for 1,000 gold (even the item description itself advises: "Sell it, don't eat."), which is much more than the 320 gold of its individual ingredients.

|This pill will improve your defense.|
- Recipe: 2 Meats + Potion + Eatable Nut Plant (requires a +5 Alchemist's Toolkit)
Hunger –10, it grants a +Attack Up buff (+50% attack for 200 turns). Taking another pill doesn't add more attack power, but another 200 turns to the buff's duration. Practically eaten for its buff and not for its nutritional value. Note: The game's description is wrong.
Foamed beverage Edit
|This drink is like Coca-Cola.|
- Recipe: Stone ore + Seed + Berry + 2 Clean waters (requires a +10 Alchemist's Toolkit)
Hunger –20, it grants the Bless buff and removes the Crippled, Bleeding, Weakness, and Poison debuffs. Practically eaten for its buff and cures and not for its nutritional value.
|Pure chocolate, super bitter.|
- Recipe: 5 Nuts (requires a +10 Alchemist's Toolkit)
Hunger –600, it grants the Alien Shield (150) buff.
Perfect Food Edit
|This is perfect food. It is good for the worker.|
- Recipe: Honey + Ration + Seed + Stone ore + Clean water OR Eatable Nut Plant + Stone Ore + Ration + Clean Water + Berry (requires a +10 Alchemist's Toolkit)
Hunger –600, it grants the Bless, Haste, Illuminated, Levitation, Recharging, Overfed, Regeneration buffs all at the same time. It also Increases the player’s maximum HP by +4 to +8 and Heals the hero by 10% of their max HP, potentially Overfilling his/her health bar.
|A huge hamburger.|
- Recipe: 2 Rations + 2 Meats + Eatable Nut Plant (requires a +10 Alchemist's Toolkit)
Hunger –770, it grants the Overfed buff. It also Heals 20% of max HP, and can Overfill the health bar. While all food can cause the Overfed buff, only the Hamburger can cause it alone by one consumption regardless of hunger or starvation level.
Obviously some recipes produce food much more efficient in satisfying hunger than other recipes, but on the other hand these “low hunger satisfaction” recipes provide very useful buffs or cures (for example Fruit Salad reduces hunger only by –130, but heals 33% of maximum HP, with the possibility of overfilling the hero’s health), so it will be better for the hero to wait until he/she gathers the necessary material for a recipe that he/she will need more, rather than cook all the food he/she can with the recipe ingredients which are already available to him/her.
Until the hero finds the Shopping Cart container most food items are stored in the main inventory - backpack with the exception of mushrooms and pills that are stored in the Potion Bandolier.
