"At this rate, I've got men scalping ration cubes for a half week's salary."

A clear, tasteless small cube, the ration cube, or nutrition cube, was full of nutrients—a useful quick meal for ground forces on the run. It was used by clone commandos. Although they had no taste, Commandos used them because they had the perfect nutritional profile for their requirements. They had no smell so the enemy couldn't detect them, and they had no fiber so the commandos could excrete minimal waste product and prevent themselves from being tracked. Training Sergeant Kal Skirata nicknamed the sorry-tasting cubes "Dry Rats".

Ration cubes were still in use by the Rebel Alliance during the Galactic Civil War. Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa initially survived on ration cubes after their crash landings on Mimban in 2 ABY.
