Nutrient paste dispenser

Nutrient paste dispenser

Synthesizes nutrient paste from organic feedstocks. It consumes less ingredients and time than any other meal production method - but nobody likes eating nutrient paste. Accepts raw food, but not rough plant matter like hay.

A nutrient paste dispenser converts raw food, placed in adjoining hoppers, into nutrient paste meals.

The dispenser provides food in an on demand basis. As long as the dispenser is powered and there is food in a connected hopper, a hungry colonist or a colonist feeding a prisoner will operate the dispenser to receive one nutrient paste meal.

Colonists may eat food raw, but the “Ate awful meal” thought gives less mood debuff than the “Ate raw food” thought, and provides more nutrition than raw food alone.

Nutrient paste meals have advantages over meals prepared by a cook. The first is that meals prepared by a cook always have a chance of causing food poisoning, whereas nutrient paste meals never cause food poisoning.

A second advantage is that it provides more nutrition per ingredient consumed. It only consumes 6 ingredients to produce a meal with 0.9 nutrition, whereas fine meal or pemmican use 10 ingredients to provide the same amount.

Using a fueled stove, an electric stove or even a campfire provides better meals.
