Food is necessary for keeping you and your Pals alive. Many survival crafting games include a Hunger gauge, and different food items fill and satiate hunger in varying amounts. Palworld has its own systems. So here, I break down all of the food stats in Palworld.

All Palworld Food Stats Listed and Detailed: Raw Food, Cooked Food, Berries, Eggs, and More

Food can be eaten raw or cooked. However, I cook all of my food because it generally provides more nutrition for Pals. I only eat raw food when I’m out exploring, gathering resources, or hunting Pals, and I’m in a pinch.

Food in Palworld has an expiration timer. Only two items are exempt from the expiration timer: Honey and Cotton Candy. However, Honey and Cotton Candy don’t provide much nutrition or restore much Sanity. So, you must always balance how much food you prepare to avoid wasting any, — or you must store a lot of Honey and Cotton Candy to make up for it, which I don’t recommend.

Aside from the expiration timer, food has two stats: nutrition and Sanity. Nutrition refers to how well a food item fills the Hunger gauge. Sanity refers to how much the food restores Pal Sanity meters. Pals with low Sanity slack off and take breaks to use the Hot Spring. Having food that can keep their Sanity meter high means Pals take fewer breaks. Further, some food provides a temporary buff to the Pal or person who eats it.

It’s important to know the buffs each cooked meal provides. For example, I prefer to eat something like Rushoar Bacon ‘n’ Eggs or Stir-Fried Veggies if I’m taking on a Syndicate Tower. I eat Reindrix Stew if I’m out gathering resources, so I don’t have to carry as many food items and have more room for Ores and other items.

But those are all of the food stats and buffs in Palworld. I feed my Pals Honey the most, but if I have ingredients to cook food, I go ahead and make what I can for Pals that need more nutrition.
