Human meat can be obtained by butchering humans. The amount obtained depends on the Butchery Efficiency of the butcher. It can be used alone to produce simple meals, or combined with other ingredients to produce fine, lavish meals, pemmican and kibble. As a raw food item, colonists dislike eating uncooked meat.

Much like insect meat, colonists are generally opposed to consuming human flesh. By default, human flesh is disabled from the list of meats that can be butchered and/or cooked. Unless the butcher has the "Psychopath," "Bloodlust," or "Cannibal" traits, butchering humanlike corpses generates a long-lasting -6 mood bad thought and even other colonists who didn't do the butchering suffer a mood debuff.

Colonists that have the Cannibal trait will enjoy human meat consumption, gaining +20 mood for eating it raw or +15 for eating it cooked; all others will get hammered with a -20 mood bad thought for eating it raw, or -15 for cooked.

It is generally encouraged to consider all other options before resorting to cannibalism to keep your colony up and running. To prevent the additional Raw Cannibalism debuff, raw human meat must be cooked. You might choose to suffer the additional penalty to put it through a nutrient paste dispenser until you can obtain more food (causing the milder, but still unfortunate, "Cooked Cannibalism" debuff).
