Brainy Matter is a Food Item exclusive to the Shipwrecked DLC. It is acquired by picking the Brainy Sprout and cannot be cooked or used in a Crock Pot. When consumed, it will restore 50 and 10 , and damage the player by 10 . It spoils very quickly and will turn to Rot in 1 Day's time. Once picked, the Brainy Sprout will take 20 days to regenerate.
Brainy Matter can be used to create the Brain of Thought, which can be used portably to access recipes which have not yet been prototyped by one of the crafting stations.
- Due to its fast spoilage, Brainy Matter will lose its 50 sanity consumption bonus at half a day's time after it is picked; thus, it is best to consume it immediately when looking for sanity gain.
- Corals are animals, marine invertebrates living in colonies. Therefore, Wigfrid is able to eat Brainy Matter.
- If one is planning to turn the matter into a Brain of Thought, one should plan ahead and get the nessecary Jellyfish and Rope to make it once the matter is picked, as there will only be 1 day to make it once it is picked.
