Gunk is a food substance derived from algae and grown in vats.

Background

Gunk is made palatable (barely) by flavourings. It’s what most middle and working class people eat in Artemis as real food is quite expensive to import from Earth.[1]

Gunk farmers buy the CO2 used to grow the algae from the Life Support Center
