Manna was the food sent miraculously to the Hebrews in the desert after they left slavery in Egypt.[1]

Some have argued that manna was natural exudates from Arabian trees and shrubs, but they are small in quantity and peculiar in taste, in contrast to the manna described in the Bible.

He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your fathers had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.[2]
