Raw food are foods primarily used as an ingredient for meals or for processing by a nutrient paste dispenser. Most raw foods have a 2% to cause food poisoning, and most of them incur a mood penalty. Toxipotatoes Content added by the Biotech DLC instead have a 4% chance to cause food poisoning.

Most foods (raw and prepared) spoil after a certain amount of time, depending on the food. Freshly cooked meals always have the same shelf life, no matter how close to spoiling the raw ingredients were; it is thus possible to extend the shelf life of raw ingredients that are about to go bad by cooking them into meals.

Storing food at low temperatures (close to freezing) extends the shelf life. Frozen food never spoils.
