Although eating canned food only restores your hunger meter one at a time like melon slices, it also restores health when eating, which can be particularly useful when caught in a sticky situation where both health and hunger are running low. Cans are also eaten significantly faster than normal food items, helping to offset the smaller filling of the hunger bar.
Canning will no longer remove the negative effects of foods such as rotten flesh, raw chicken, and spider eyes. The (Filled) Tin Can will have the subtext: This looks bad...
Different types of food will fill a different number of cans. This is shown in the following table:
|Type Of Food||Cans Filled|
|Cooked Beef, Steak or Porkchop||4|
|Notch's Golden Apple*||2|
The items marked with an asterisk will produce Canned Food which retains the same effect as eating the ingredient raw would inflict.
