If you got confused between hunger and saturation, or want to know the best food to eat, weve got the answers.
Minecraft is a fantastic sandbox game in which the possibilities are endless. You can make incredible structures, elaborate mazes, or even simple, relaxing homes in scenic locations. Although you could stick to creative mode and build without limits, part of the challenge of Minecraft comes from attempting to achieve these goals while also trying to survive.
There are many obstacles on your route to success. You must combat a variety of monsters, craft items, mine the resources needed for projects, and alongside all of this, must make sure you dont starve (wait, isnt that another game?). Hunger is an important aspect of Minecraft (represented by a row of ten drumsticks) that can often get neglected. Without managing hunger, you are in for a frustrating playthrough at times. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to keep on top of it.

The answer can be found on the minecraft wiki page on hunger.
If you have 90%-100% food you will regain health slowly, but if you have 0% you will lose health instead. On easy the players health would slowly drop to 5 hearts, 0.5 hearts on normal, and all the way to death on hard.
The players hunger value is shown on the heads-up display in the form of a hunger bar (or food bar), which is similar to the health bar (located above the hotbar), located opposite to it and represented by ten drumsticks ( × 10). One half of a drumstick () represents one hunger point or half-unit of hunger, thus the full bar consists of twenty hunger points. It is replenished by eating food, and decreased by players actions such as sprinting, digging or attacking.
Various levels of players hunger control health regeneration (or depletion) and the ability to sprint. When hunger is at 18 (), the players health regenerates. If it falls to 6 (), the player loses the ability to sprint. If the hunger bar is at zero, the players health depletes. The specific effects are described in the Effects of hunger section. The hunger value does not drain on Peaceful difficulty and regenerates if it is not at the maximum value.
An important aspect of hunger not shown on the hunger bar is called food saturation and controls the decreasing of the hunger value. It depends on what the player has eaten last. There is also a food exhaustion value that controls the decreasing of the food saturation level. How exactly they control the overall hunger value is described in more depth in the Mechanics section.

Certain foods have a chance of inflicting the Hunger effect on the player upon consumption, causing the players food bar to deplete faster and turn a yellow-green color (). These foods are pufferfish, raw chicken (30% chance), and rotten flesh (80% chance). A husk can also give the player hunger upon being attacked by one.
5 You Are At A Disadvantage When Hungry
It is important to note that when your hunger bar begins to go down, you will have a tough time surviving. This is because your health can only regenerate when the hunger bar is above nine drumsticks. Once the bar goes below this number, you will be unable to heal naturally, which can be dangerous when lost in a mob-filled mine.
You will also be unable to sprint when the hunger bar gets as low as three drumsticks, meaning you will have to slow down after running around the wilderness all day. These disadvantages highlight just how vital hunger can be in Minecraft.
