To eat a golden apple, press and hold use while it is selected in the hotbar. Both restore 4 () points of hunger and 9.6 hunger saturation.
The regular golden apple provides absorption for 2 minutes (providing 4 () points of absorption health) and regeneration II for 5 seconds (long enough to heal 4 () points of damage). The enchanted golden apple provides absorption for 2 minutes, regeneration V (1 () every 3 ticks, × 3⅓ per second) for 30 seconds, fire resistance for 5 minutes and resistance (20% reduced damage from all sources except the Void) for 5 minutes.
Golden apples can be eaten even when the player's hunger bar is full.
A total of 200 ( × 100) health points can be restored by eating an enchanted golden apple. The healing speed is enough to endure nearly any damage except from the Void.
