Mushroom Stew[edit]

Mushroom stew is a food item, that can be very easily crafted. Mushroom stew can be crafted from bowl, brown mushroom and red mushroom. Bowl can be crafted from 3 planks and all types of mushroom can be founded in nether (this means that when player has not food in the nether, the mushroom stew is very good way to get food bar). Mushroom stew can be also crafted through inventory crafting. Player can also get mushroom stew by "milking" mooshroom.

Rotten Flesh[edit]

Rotten flesh is one of the most common items in the game. It can be earned from chest loot, zombies and other zombie-type mobs like zombified piglins. When is rotten flesh eaten, it has an 80% to give the player hunger for 30 seconds. The best way to eat rotten flesh with the shortest duration of hunger is drinking milk after eating rotten flesh.

Dried Kelp[edit]

Kelp very common if the player is near an ocean. When kelp is broken, it can be smelted into dried kelp. A player can consume dried kelp about twice as fast as any other food item in the game. The biggest disadvantage is that dried kelp restores only 1 (πŸ—) hunger and 0.6 saturation.
