* ''VideoGame/FrostPunk'': In this colony management game where the player oversees a post-apocalyptic ice age colony with the main goal of trying desperately to hold off the DespairEventHorizon, farming is no longer an option so alternative foods have to be found. Lichen and moss can be grown in special Hothouses while stew rations can be made to feed more people. If things get really desperate, there's always adding sawdust to the rations to feed even more people (at the cost of people's health and mood) and then finally, there's good old [[ImAHumanitarian cannibalism]].

** In a good many of his novels, especially the Elijah Baley series, people are vegetarian through no particular choice of their own -- the Earth is so overcrowded that real meat is a luxury most people can't afford, and artificial yeast-based proteins grown in vats ("zymoveal") are the food of choice for the working class. [[http://www.quorn.com/welcome/ Quorn]] is a real-life equivalent, made from molds instead of yeast.

* In ''VideoGame/StarsInShadow,'' the Food Synthesis research allows an Ongoing Project called "Synthesize Food," which temporarily converts industrial production into food production. Its next tier is called "food replicators," which makes the synthetic food taste better but still not as good as honest-to-goodness farmed food.

Said food is specifically noted to not taste very good, and is strictly an emergency measure. Its next tier is called "food replicators," which makes the synthetic food taste better but still not as good as honest-to-goodness farmed food.
