Project Lembas was a food replacement project created by Drew Collingsworth, aiming to replace regular Vault supplies with a proprietary food paste. It was an experiment for determining the optimal density of calories in a foodstuff versus storage space. It was intended for use in a VTU experiment that would test the tolerance of various individual's ability to consume food of unvarying texture, but allow them to design flavors or use pre-created flavors. The experiment would have two groups: A control group that uses a standard regimen of Vault supplies, and an experimental group that subsists on nothing but Drew's food paste formula:[1]

  • Dried yellow peas - 20.1%
  • Garbanzo beans - 15.8%
  • Pea protein - 12.3%
  • Dried egg product - 8.8%
  • Canola oil - 8.3%
  • Whole Ground Flaxseed - 7.6%
  • Ground miscanthus grass - 7.3%

  • Inulin - 0.6%
  • Salt - - 0.6%
