* Sly (SylvesterStallone) eats a hamburger made from a rat in ''Film/DemolitionMan'' while in the Wasteland. Curiously, he seems to dig it, though he seemed a bit surprised/disgusted for a brief moment. Probably because it's the best food '''period''' he's had in years. Being in suspended animation for a few decades tends to do that for you, especially with the revelation that he was conscious the entire time. He may also have been playing it up to freak out the surface-dwellers that were with him; they were horrified by the notion of eating meat, and he seems to enjoy making fun of their delicate sensibilities.

* In ''Series/{{Lexx}}'', the eponymous spaceship/dragonfly dispenses food for his/her crew as a green, orange or blue slime through an organic-looking tube. It's stated several times during the show that the food consists of processed "organic material" Lexx him/herself ate before. Considering Lexx often consumes parts of inhabited planets or passing starships, this leads to slightly disconcerting implications.

There's a RunningGag of Stan ordering exotic delicacies from Lexx and expressing mock disappointment at getting the same slime every time.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Cyberpunk}} 2020'' features the ''Kibble'' that's described to have the same aspect, smell, and flavor of the dog food from which it takes its name.

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', Joker implies that most commercially available beef is vat-grown. The Quarians render all their food, plant or animal, into paste before eating it. However, for the most part, it seems that natural food isn't particularly rare.

** Another short story, "Good Taste," focuses on the orbiting colony Gammer, where fungus/yeast based cuisine is SeriousBusiness and all recipes are based on standard extracts. The protagonist enters(and ''wins'') the annual cooking contest, and the chief judge raves about his entry until he admits that the key ingredient was a ground bulb of naturally-grown garlic. The judge immediately vomits at the idea of having eaten "growths from the ground" and the protagonist is banished.

* Pretty much the only type of food available on Earth in ''Film/SilentRunning''. And Lowell Freeman, who has eaten vegetables he has himself grown on the ground of the remaining forests of Earth, is the sole member of the crew of the ''Valley Forge'' that laments this.

*** (Some) Klingons, such as Worf's brother Kern, apparently have an issue with the replicator technology, as their culture demands that meat animals be hunted and killed. This issue pops up rather inconsistently, though.

This issue pops up rather inconsistently, though. Certain foods, like ''gagh'' and ''racht'', both a type of worm, cannot be replicated as replicators cannot create living objects and those are universally eaten living.

The DarkerAndEdgier version of FoodPills (it probably first appeared in fiction as a subversion thereof), and the black sheep cousin to {{Veganopia}}. Assuming it's not recycled, this sort of future food usually comes from a MultipurposeMonoculturedCrop.

* ''VideoGame/{{Rimworld}}'' allows you to build Nutrient Paste Dispensers which convert raw food into nutrient paste. Compared to cooked food, nutrient paste is bland and [[MoraleMechanic affects your suvivors' mood negatively]], but it's handy to have it when you don't have a cook who can safely prepare meals for your settlement.

* In PiersAnthony's ''Literature/ApprenticeAdept'' series, the Serfs are fed "nutri-food", processed goo that can be shaped to various textures, while the Citizens can get anything up to and including bear steaks. This is a minor plot point after Stile goes into hiding-he asks Sheen to go get him some food, preferably some pudding or something else that won't change much since the only way to smuggle it to Stile is by eating it. When she gets back, she activates whatever passes for a gag reflex in [[RobotGirl gynoids]] and vomits up a double handful of pudding that does look distressingly used. Stile manages to eat it by telling himself that in the games, the standard nurti-hork can and usually is shaped into various disgusting things like puke and engine oil, and he just has to pretend this is what's happening now.
