Which country developed numerous substitutes for food products during World War I?

United Kingdom
France
Germany
Russia
Since 1914, the Allied naval blockade of Germany throt­tled maritime commerce with Germany, forcing Germany to develop sub­sti­tutes for products (Ersatz) such as tea composed of ground rasp­ber­ry leaves or catnip, and coffee sub­sti­tute using roasted acorns. This process was not limited to food, numerous chemical sub­sti­tutes such as syn­thet­ic rubber were also de­vel­oped at the time.
