Nourishment is an effect granted by using either of two types of consumables: food or utilities. Food includes nearly every food-like consumable in the game, while utilities includes all other sources.
You can have one of each type of nourishment active and their effects stack, unless noted in their description. Each of the two effects is replaced if you consume another item providing the same type of effect. For example, you can stack the precision boosts from an Omnomberry Pie (a food) and an Artisan Maintenance Oil (a utility), but eating a Chocolate Chip Cookie (another food) after the pie will result in the cookie's lesser boost replacing the pie's.

- Like booster effects, nourishment buffs last until they expire or are replaced — they persist through defeat and zoning.
- The duration of these buffs counts down only while the character is logged on. If you switch characters, the timer stops.
- Originally, utility buffs ended after zoning, defeat, or logout. They were changed in an update to behave more like food.
