The trick to getting Chitin Powder is to hunt down and kill Hive throughout the galaxy. Hive can be found in large concentrations on planets like Nessus and the Moon. When killed, Hive have a small chance to drop Chitin Powder, one of the primary ingredients used to make items like Alkane Dragee Cookies, Javelin Mooncake, and Ascendant Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. This means you’re going to need at least three Chitin Powder to craft one of each of the cookies that require it in the recipe.
