In Valheim, you are always subjected to forging and other activities that consume energy, and in order to stay energized, you need to eat food. Food can also be useful when it comes to healing. Each food has its own points for healing and you have to know the different foods and their duration of effectiveness in order to survive in the game.
Which Food to Eat for Max Health?
In Valheim you will get starting health of 25 points and it will keep increasing as you consume more food. The points that each food item will fetch you can be known from the food chart. For example, if you eat cooked meat, then you will be able to score 40 points in health. The level of health points you already have also played in determining the time in which you will get your health bar hit the maximum. If you are at the maximum of 25 points then you will gain your health faster enough and if your health is lower than that, then the process may be a bit slow.
Valheim, Combination of Food Items:
In Valheim, you can have 3 items at a time. If you know how to cook, then you will also be able to fetch maximum points at the same time. One thing that you should keep in mind is that you cannot consume the same food twice in the game. If you do so, you are not going to get any extra points. Rather select different types of food at a time to yield maximum effect. Suppose you are eating meat, then wait for it to fetch you the complete points it can, and then you may add another meat.
Valheim, Duration of Effectiveness:
Each food item has its own time of effectiveness. For example, the cooked meat provides you 2 points every 10 seconds and its effect lasts for about 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, you will have to look after some other food or the same food to get more health points. As stated earlier, if you are consuming meat at a time then you have to wait for 20 minutes to have another meat as its duration is that much. You don’t need to worry about healing in this case, as the healing points would continue to exist even after the duration of the food item is over. However, the health points would start to decrease.
