A lump of royal jelly is a special comestible that is usually only found in beehives (it can also be created by a horn of plenty). Eating a blessed or uncursed lump of royal jelly will increase your strength (if not already maximized) by +1.[1] If cursed, it will decrease your strength by one.

If your legs are injured, they will be healed.

Your hit points are increased by 0-20 (or decreased if the jelly is cursed). If this would raise your HP above your max HP, there is a 6.25% chance (1 in 16) to increase your max HP by one.

Royal jelly is a popular comestible to store for the ascension run, as it has a very good nutrition-to-weight ratio and can be eaten in one turn, both of which can be crucial concerns in the late game.

Royal jelly is vegetarian but not vegan.
