Mossy Fungus, Yum!

Thinking about what to eat after the apocalypse? Mossy fungus could be used to make nutritional food products, says Julia Schwarz, a recent graduate from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna.

With her project Unseen Edible she has developed a variety of edible items made from lichen—a hardy fungus-like species that grows on tree bark, plants and rocks. According to her, lichen is a great source during a potential food shortage, as it’s easy to grow, even in a harsh environment and climate.

I sure would be interested in trying all these things, just out of curiosity.

There are many species of lichen and not all are edible. Some will make you sick. It's a good idea to get the exact species name and how to ID them and compare them to similar-looking species. But yes, some lichen is edible.

At the stores there is a product called Qorn made from a fungus (a mushroom I assume). It's made into patties in the freezer section and cooked like a burger. I have not tried it though.

much better for health than milk powder and glucose and fructose that are used excessively in the food industry
