The Nomads Outback
SCOP (single celled organic protein) is the second most common food eaten by nomads. Scops are used in almost every processed foodstuff. They are similar to a gengineered form of tofu. They can also be seeded with other enzymes that create differing flavors and textures. Families and packs usually carry several tanks that they use to grow their own scops to supplement their diets. A standard tank is about a cubic meter in volume. With supplies, it can create enough food every week to feed a family of ten for two days. The most common scops are used to make high-protein noodles or sandwich slices, but they are also used in soups and as a snack food packaged like candy bars. Scop seed cultures cost between ten and twenty euros on the open market. 10 people x 2 days x 3 meals = 60 meals per tank per weeks growth time.
