Rotten Flesh is a food item dropped by Zombies, Zombie Pigmen, and Zombie Horses. Eating it restores 20% of your hunger meter. However, Rotten Flesh has an 80% chance of causing food poisoning. Once poisoned, you will notice that your hunger meter turns green and floating green bubbles will appear around you. You can cure your poisoning by drinking a bucket of milk or waiting 30 seconds. Rotten Flesh cannot be cooked and is not used in any crafting recipes. Rotten flesh heals Wolves without poisoning or causing damage to them.
- Rotten Flesh is rather easy to get once one has a sword/bow and armor, as zombies are more common than passive mobs. You can also wait until the zombies have burned from exposure to sunlight.
- Rotten Flesh can be a good emergency food when other sources are depleted if used in high doses, restoring more food points than the hunger effect can take away.
- Rotten Flesh may be used to feed and breed wolves rather than other meats as wolves do not have any hunger bar, so they are immune to food poisoning.
- Rotten Flesh may be traded to NPC Villager Priests for emeralds.
- Rotten Flesh has an 80% chance to trigger food poisoning, making hunger deplete for thirty seconds.
- Rotten Flesh only restores two hunger.
- Killing zombies for rotten flesh may be dangerous for under-equipped players.
- Rotten Flesh restores less saturation than other meats.
