Deca-triticale was a nutrient used by Space Pirates in the Phazon Mines operation, specifically, in the creation of Elite Nutrient Mix prepared for the Elite Pirates. It would later be replaced with the less expensive and more plentiful fungal matter from Saturnines, when infused with Phazon.
"Phazon-infused fungal harvesting continues. Replacement of deca-triticale with Phazon-infused fungal matter in Elite Ration Mix has been authorized."
- In the real world, triticale is a grain hybrid of wheat and rye. Why the Space Pirates would be using a human food in their experiments is unknown.
