A Golden Carrot is a valuable food item and brewing ingredient. When eaten, a golden carrot restores 6 hunger points (), and 14.4 saturation points (the highest saturation of any food currently in the game). A golden carrot is required to brew the Potion of Night Vision, and is thereby vital in creating the coveted Potion of Invisibility (which requires a Night Vision potion as an ingredient.) It is also used to breed horses, donkeys, and mules.
