What deliciousness shall you yield?

Warly

Food can be obtained by foraging, trapping, farming or hunting mobs. Food refills Hunger and may restore some Health along with Sanity, depending on the quality of the food eaten. Eating some foods, such as Monster Meat or Durians, can damage the player's health instead of restoring it. Some foods, such as raw Meat or Morsels, will damage a player's sanity if eaten. Mushrooms have varying effects on Health and Sanity depending on their color. Some special food items, such as Glow Berry, have additional effects when eaten.

Almost all raw food can be Cooked on a Campfire to increase the amount of Health/Hunger/Sanity restored or reduced, and sometimes remove Health/Sanity penalties from eating it. Some raw food items, most notably Meats, can be dried on a Drying Rack to produce long lasting food items with increased Health/Hunger/Sanity values. Additionally, a Crock Pot can be used for making foods that have additional benefits.

Food items also have other uses than eating them directly. Meat can be used as bait for carnivores, for the recruitment of Pigs, and as an offering to the Pig King for Gold Nuggets. A renewable way to gain Eggs is by giving meats to birds housed in Bird Cages. Meat is also a requirement to construct the Meat Effigy. Bunnymen can be befriended using Carrots and will become hostile if meat is in the player's inventory. Vegetables and Fruits can be used as bait for herbivores and given to Pigs to obtain Manure. Seeds can be used to bait Bird Traps.

Being of the most important items in the game, (and part of the game's namesake, to not starve) food is typically very valuable in any world; however, given the layouts of different maps and what spawns in them, food availability can vary from being abundant, to dangerously short. Food is affected by the seasons, which likely encourages the player to take advantages of seasonal diets and also take advantages of the food's shelf life.

With the introduction of Overheating mechanic in the Reign of Giants DLC (and carried over to Don't Starve Together and the Shipwrecked DLC), some foods are classified as hot or cold, providing an alternative way to combat Freezing and Overheating, respectively.

For Information on Food values and Priority, see the Crock Pot page.

Categories[]

There are several Food categories:

Perish Times[]

Most food and some non-edible items have a perish time, eventually turning into Rot, turning into another food or item, or disappearing completely.

Stage Effect
Green (50-100% Fresh) Restores the full amount of Hunger Meter.png, Health Meter.png and Sanity Meter.png for a given food.
Yellow (21-49% Stale) Restores 2/3 of Hunger Meter.png, 1/3 of Health Meter.png for a given food and doesn't restore any Sanity Meter.png.
Red (0-20% Spoiled) Restores 1/2 of Hunger Meter.png for a given food, doesn't restore any Health Meter.png and decreases Sanity Meter.png by 10.

On ground, Ocean 1.5

In addition to above modifiers, the same items can be affected by some other modifiers if any of the condition below is true:

Condition Spoilage Rate (higher = spoils faster) Notes
Wet state Wetness Meter.png 1.3 Most food floating on Ocean is wet until picked up and dried off.
World temperature below 0 Tallbird Egg Death Cold.png 0.75 / 0 Mostly in Winter, 0 only applies to Ice.png/Hail.pngShipwrecked icon.png.
Melting near Heat Source Fire Pit.png 30 Only applies to Ice.png/Hail.pngShipwrecked icon.png.
World temperature above 70 Tallbird Egg Too Hot.png 1.25 Mostly in SummerReign of Giants icon.pngDon't Starve Together icon.png or Dry Season Shipwrecked icon.png.
Aporkalypse Hamlet icon.png 1.5
Custom Modifier 0.25 Moon Moth.png Don't Starve Together icon.png applies when in inventory,

0.0125 (Blue Spore.png/Red Spore.png/Green Spore.png) Don't Starve Together icon.png applies when in inventory.

For example, according to tables above during winter, when temperature is below 0°, Soggy perishable items in the Ice Box or Snow Chester will spoil at 0.5 × 0.75 × 1.3 = 0.4875 rate.

  • Any kind of cooked meat lasts longer than any raw meat, but any kind of raw vegetable lasts longer than any cooked vegetable. The exceptions are Popcorn, which lasts longer than raw Corn; Mushrooms, which last the same amount of time whether cooked or raw; and Seaweed in Shipwrecked lasts longer when cooked.
  • Monster meat is the only meat in the game that lasts longer overall the earlier you cook it (i.e. monster meat will last 15 days total if cooked at 100% freshness, but will last 14.25 days total (3 days raw + 11.25 days cooked) if cooked at 50% freshness)
  • Being near the Spore Bomb of a Toadstool will accelerate spoiling rapidly.
  • The stale and spoiled effects do not apply to WX-78.
  • The effects of eating stale or spoiled food are worse when playing as Wickerbottom. Stale food will only give 1/3 of the hunger and 1/4 of health. Spoiled food will restore only 1/6 of the hunger. The rest of the values are the same as other characters.
  • Cooking food on fire or in a Crock Pot halves the spoiled amount of the food (e.g. if it were at 80% freshness when raw, it would change to 90% freshness after being cooked).
  • Tallbird Eggs, Mandrakes (raw and cooked), the Deerclops Eyeball, Guardian's Horn, (Glommer's Goop Reign of Giants icon.png, Jellybeans Don't Starve Together icon.png) and ("Ballphin Free" Tuna Shipwrecked icon.png, which gives one Fish Steak when used) are the only Food items which don't spoil (despite Honey being the only food in real life that does not spoil).
  • Food cooked in the Crock Pot and meat dried on the Drying Rack do not begin to spoil until picked up. This was changed in the Reign of Giants DLC.
  • Spoiled Eggs become Rotten Eggs instead of Rot.
  • Spoiled Tea instead becomes Iced Tea, which can then turn into Rot.

Food Temperature[]

A food with a defined temperature effect will increase/decrease the player's perceived temperature by 40°, for varying lengths of time. This effect is not directly related to, or affected by the food's freshness.

Cold foods preserve their full effect until they rot.

Hot foods, however, will cool off over time (shortening the duration of the increased temperature effect, rather than decreasing in temperature) after being made (all hot foods are Crock Pot dishes). Hot foods will cool off four times as fast if put inside a functioning Ice Box. This cool-off increase will also happen inside Snow Chester. The Insulated Pack, Sea Sack, Chef Pouch and the Bundling Wrap will preserve the temperature effect indefinitely.

Splitting a stack of hot food will reset the temperature duration of the new stack, and combining stacks will set the duration to the same as the stack that is being added to.

An exception to the cooling-down effect of hot foods are several non-perishable food items available during Winter's Feast in Don't Starve Together. These foods will keep a long-lasting hot effect indefinitely, making them a great item to keep around static resurrection structures, especially during Winter:

Favorite Food Don't Starve Together icon.png[]

In Don't Starve Together, characters gain an extra 15 Hunger Meter.png when eating food they consider their favorite. The extra value is affected by freshness.

Prototype.png Tips[]

  • Meatballs should be prioritized for most characters excluding those unable to consume meat during the early game as a decent way of dealing with hunger before moving down the list with more elaborated food, such as Honey Ham.
  • In order to maximize the endurance of a food item, the player can cook it in a suitable time. Taking into account the difference of spoil rate of the cooked version and the raw version of a certain food can be useful to the player to know whether it's best to cook it or not.
  • When cooking sanity restoring food, one should be wary of their freshness, as when they turn stale, they no longer restore sanity. Since most sanity restoring food items require specific ingredients, it's recommended to consume them as soon as possible in order to benefit from the sanity gain without wasting expensive ingredients for small amounts of hunger and little to no health gains.
