J.J. Abrams went out of his way to use practical effects throughout Star Wars: The Force Awakens to give it a feel more in keeping with the original trilogy. This means we’re occasionally surprised to learn some parts of the film — like BB-8 — weren’t CGI. Another practical effect you may have assumed was CGI was the instant bread Rey (Daisy Ridley) makes on Jakku by adding water to some powdered rations which were originally Republic and Imperial military supplies.
