    Potato is one of the most resilient and cheap vegetables, as you could see it was heavily utilized in totalitarian soviet union and soviet army.

    So in grim darkness of the far future there is only fried potato with grox nuggets?

    Nope they have a variety of foods from around the galaxy. Grox burgers are the favourite fast food but there is everything you could imagine and more. There is moss, birds, lizards, sea plants, artic plants, desert plants, plenty of tropical plants.

    Potatoes are the fruit of Terra. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, potato chips, potato bread, potato skins. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's scalloped potatoes, hot potatoes, french fries, potato soup, potato stew, potato salad, potatoes and potatoes, potato burger, potato sandwich. That- that's about it.

    Recaf from what I can tell is a Synthetic Coffee substitue, teas still exist but come in largely the herbal variety.
    Promethium is gasoline or gasoline substitue and not from what I can tell a sweetner.
    amasec is space booze. Fans of the Original Battlestar Galactica might remember Amberosia being a form of booze they had avaible. The cheap stuff is more than likely pure ethelalchole. The more expensive stuff is similar to fine wine. This seems to be a bit of a catch call.
    LhO-stick - Tabacco has rather special growing climites and soil needs, much life Coffee, tea, and Chili pepers. This is probably made from a hybrid plant that can survive the wide variety of climate, and soils out in the known galazy.

    Amasec - Catch-all term for your hard liquor.
    Sacra - Catch-all term for wines.

    Iho (eye-ho you morons) is described as being slightly narcotic. Kind of a cross between marijuana and tobacco.

    Grox - Big-ass violent lizard that has to be lobotomized to keep it from rampaging and killing everyone. Tastes like beef.

    Like said, potatoes are from the holy terra itself. Potato Marines are tasked to protect these holy potatoes with their lives.

    Besides, they don't grow in warp. Potatoes aren't affected by the warp powers, as potatoes do not have needs for pleasures of flesh, passion, fatherly love or lust of blood.

    They are potatoes. They are purity incarnate.

    if potatoes did exist in the Imperium you know the =][= would just declare them heresy.

    Potatoes are easy to produce and could feed billions if an entire agri-world was devoted to them, the =][= wants everyone to starve so they can keep everyone on a tight leash.

    Or maybe you don't realize that some of the monsters from the warp were in fact potatoes? Perhaps potatoes have such fantastically scary properties in the warp?

    Every soldier that fights for the imperium becomes dirty, hense they shall be washed and rinced before they can serve the emperor once more, like potatoes.

    And its obvious to see a warp creature that looks like a potato from a potato. They don't have warp presence, as such they are incorruptible.

    Many have tried to posess a potato, only to fail miserably.

    Calories =/= fat.

    Potatoes are almost entirely starchy carbohydrate, which is a big source of energy which is why spuds have lots of calories. Until you fry them, though, they have barely any actual fat.

    Makeing them a perfect food for the Empire.

    The Imperium probably grows these as fast as they can, as much as they can because they are so hardy, and grow in such a wide variety of Climates. From the Volcanic soils of Idaho, to Ireland, to the Marshy soils of Wisconsin, although that funky shaped western state has become the Ireland of America with there shere output of spuds.
