Rotten flesh is a food item which can be eaten by the player, but with the risk of food poisoning.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Zombies[edit | edit source]

Rotten flesh is dropped by all kinds of zombies, and zombie pigmen. Zombies drop from 0 to 2 units of rotten flesh, and zombie pigmen drop from 0 to 1. A single rotten flesh is also dropped by zombie horses, but they can only be summoned with commands.

Fishing[edit | edit source]

Rotten flesh can be obtained as a "junk" item while fishing.

Natural generation[edit | edit source]

Rotten flesh can be found in 62.8% of desert temple chests and 62.8% of jungle temple chests in stacks of 3–7. In 1.9,[upcoming] rotten flesh can be found in 57.9% of igloo chests in stacks of 1, in 29.0% of desert temple chests and 62.8% of jungle temple chests in stacks of 3–7, and in 59.0% of desert temple chests and 57.8% of dungeon chests in stacks of 1–8.

Usage[edit | edit source]

See also: Hunger management

To eat rotten flesh, press and hold use while rotten flesh is selected in the hotbar.

Eating rotten flesh restores 4 (Hunger.svgHunger.svg) hunger and 0.8 hunger saturation, but has an 80% chance of inflicting food poisoning for 30 seconds (a Hunger effect). Drinking milk will end the food poisoning immediately.

Rotten flesh can be used to heal or breed tamed wolves without risk of food poisoning.
