The Tuso can eat up to 50 of a stack at any one time, which only counts as a single consumption for the purposes of Taming Effectiveness - i.e. 50 Black Pearls at a time will get you a really high percentage of effectiveness (but 30 Cooked Prime isn't bad, either). Raw Prime doesn't stack so don't bother. The Tuso can also eat while below 90% of maximum health regardless of the Food value of the consumable (so ~3 minutes, and not the 20+ minutes that 1500 Food from 50 Pearls should take). Dododex's table is only accurate for 1-at-a-time feeding, which you shouldn't do unless on at least a 10x server.
