Man-flesh is a food item that can be acquired through slaughtering humans, and is a favourite foodstuff for Orcs.
Eating man-flesh can have two results. If you have positive alignment with any orcish or troll faction it heals six hunger points and provides decent saturation, comparable to that of cooked zebra and salted meat. Otherwise it will give the hunger effect for 30 seconds and not restore any food.
Another way to put man-flesh to use is to cook it in an orcish oven, which will produce rotten flesh and makes the meat unrecognizable and its origin hard to trace back. By consequently salting it, it will produces suspicious meat, a food item has the same nutritional value as man-flesh.
The only feasible purpose of producing suspicious meat from man-flesh would be to cover up having ever slaughtered humans and pretending you bought it from a trader. You may eventually find players buying it, but there are no traders who are interested in buying it from you.
If you cannot find Orcish traders who are interested to buy man-flesh from you, and you don't want to consume it yourself, cooking it in a furnace and selling it as rotten flesh to traders may be an alternative option to at least get some coin from it.
It can be bought from half-troll scavengers, who will charge you 6-10 ( to ) coins per piece. In some cases you may even find their merchandise is still fresh and warm.
