"Perfect. I wonder if we'll get hit by a moon next."
―Milinae Untaire, after biting into a gone off chewing root[src]

Chewing root was a type of edible root. During the Clone Wars, the smuggler Milinae Untaire carried a stick of chewing root in her pocket while fighting against battle droids and Trandoshans on a space station in the Cularin system. She discovered the root while looking for a grenade and she bit into it. However, the root was gone off and it had a sour taste.
