Suspicious stew is a food item that can give the player a status effect.


Suspicious stew is the only food item in the game that cannot be obtained from the Creative inventory but can be crafted and found in shipwreck chests. In Java Edition suspicious stew can be given with commands like /give, but unless NBT data like that listed in the data values section is included, consuming it gives no effect.

Any Flower

Chest loot[edit]

Suspicious stew[note 1] can be found in 57.4% of shipwreck supply chests in stacks of 1.

Brown mooshrooms[edit]

After being given a flower, a brown mooshroom can be milked for suspicious stew with a bowl.


In Java Edition, expert-level farmer villagers sell 1 or 2 suspicious stew[note 1] for one emerald.

In Bedrock Edition, master-level farmer villagers have a 13 chance to sell suspicious stew for one emerald.



A bowl of suspicious stew restores 6 () and 7.2 saturation points, and gives a few seconds of a status effect. The effect given upon eating depends on which flower is used, and is stored as an NBT Tag. The effect is not displayed in the tooltip, texture, etc, meaning that the player cannot tell in advance what the effect is unless they remember what flower they used.

Flower Effect Duration (BE) Duration (JE)
Allium Fire Resistance 2s 4s
Azure Bluet Blindness 6s 8s
Blue Orchid
Saturation ? 0.35s
Cornflower Jump Boost 4s 6s
Lily of the Valley Poison 10s 12s
Oxeye Daisy Regeneration 6s 8s
Poppy Night Vision 4s 5s
Tulips Weakness 7s 9s
Wither Rose Wither 6s 8s

The bowl is emptied and returned to the player after the suspicious stew has been eaten, and can be re-used to craft more stews.
