That's interesting, I didn't know that, thanks.Smile
Hos does the lichen taste? - because manna was supposed to taste like honey cake, and to get with worms if staying overnight.

Lichen does not comes from heaven.Big sea storms sometimes create rains of fish on dry land but...Real point is that it was God's help!Heaven is pointed even in name MaNNa(PaMaNNa has to be in original!?!).

Apparently it tastes bitter, but to starving refugees it would be the sweetest thing they tasted for weeks

About mutualism in lichen:

Every lichen species is part fungus. Usually the other  species is a photosynthesizing alga, but sometimes it can be a photosynthesizing bacterium known as a cyanobacterium. Sometimes all three kinds of organisms are found in one lichen. The above drawing gives an idea of what fungal hyphae wrapping around alga cells might look like at the microscopic level.

 Is it good for food:some are poisons also!

Well it might be either and or....evidence appears solid for both.
 
I ate many a bug whole but never took the time to wait for secretions...had other problems....so I'm no help there...lichens and fungus is ok... ate them and ferns-weeds-cactus by the pounds....fills ya up. Gives a bit of indegestion and the crappers fer a few hours but overall not bad. 
 
 
 
But as Nick notes: ''but to starving refugees it would be the sweetest thing they tasted for weeks''
 
 
 
Same applys for RANGERS in training and LRRP's and dismounted Cav types on recon.
 
I am starting to tear up just remembering.

The bible allows the consumption of certain types of bug: grasshoppers, crickets and locusts. When fried they apparently taste similar to prawns

I would consider that mushrooms were the manna!

They do appear "overnight!"
