Food disc

From Buck Wiki, the ultimate Buck Rogers reference
A food disc from Vistula undergoing testing by Dr. Mallory (BR25: "Planet of the Slave Girls").

The food disc is the mainstay Terran foodstuff of the 25th century.

Food discs are processed under the auspices of the Food Directorate, and are manufactured from protein and other plant sources from the planet Vistula, as Earth itself does not have any means of large-scale agricultural or food production.

In 2491 CE, food discs from Vistula are deliberately poisoned by Kaleel and his followers, with shipments of these contaminated food discs focused for primarily distribution to the Defense Directorate's pilot corps. This is part of Kaleel's plan to destroy Earth, and done under the very nose of the Food Directorate's appointed overseer, Governor Tabor Saroyan (BR25: "Planet of the Slave Girls").
