The Krabby Patty Secret Formula is a central ingredient to the highly popular Krabby Patty. There are many variations of the Krabby Patty but all have one secret ingredient which is yet to be identified or revealed. Plankton commonly tries to steal this formula in order to improve the popularity of the Chum Bucket.
The Krabby Patty secret formula is kept only for people who are loyal enough to hide it from evildoers such as Plankton. As told in "Friend or Foe," a pinch of chum is present in this formula, however, as it was revealed in a story that was made up by Plankton, it's possible that it isn't in the formula at all. In "The Great Patty Caper," some other ingredients were revealed: flour, barnacle shavings, salt, and turmeric. Another confirmed ingredient is love, which is revealed in the episodes, "Plankton's Army," "Growth Spout," and "The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water."
The secret formula plays an essential role in the plot lines for the two movies. In these movies, Plankton devises numerous ways to steal the formula as he does in many episodes in the SpongeBob SquarePants series. In the second movie, it is Burger-Beard the Pirate who attempts and succeeds to steal the secret formula in order to set up his own fast-food business on land. Another of the Krabby Patties' secret ingredients is known as the "secret sauce," which was revealed in "As Seen On TV" "Patty Caper." and briefly in "Graveyard Shift".
