When it comes to Minecraft, foodstuffs are varied and plentiful. Whether it be flat out potatoes or tasty golden apples, there’s something for everyone. Unfortunately some of us are incredibly masochistic. For those happy few of us, there’s a special dish which we can concoct. Suspicious stew is an interesting item, and today we’re gonna talk about all there is to know about it. Let’s begin!


Suspicious Stew

In Minecraft, Suspicious Stew is a food item that was introduced in version 1.14. It is a consumable item that can be eaten by the player to restore hunger points and heal damage.


The Suspicious Stew is made by combining one bowl, one red mushroom, one brown mushroom, and any type of flower in a crafting table. When consumed, it restores three hunger points and gives the player a status effect that depends on the type of flower used to make the stew. The type of status effect can be positive or negative, and it is randomly determined when the stew is crafted. For example, using a poppy flower may give the player a positive effect such as regeneration, while using a wither rose may give a negative effect such as wither.

Due to its random nature, the Suspicious Stew can be both helpful and harmful, making it a somewhat risky food item to use in Minecraft.


Here are some trivia facts about Suspicious Stew in Minecraft:

  • Suspicious Stew was added to Minecraft in the Village & Pillage update (version 1.14) in 2019.
  • The name “Suspicious Stew” comes from the fact that the effects it gives are random, making it a bit unpredictable and “suspicious”.
  • When a player eats Suspicious Stew, a sound effect of a slurping noise can be heard.
  • Different types of flowers used in crafting Suspicious Stew give different status effects. For example, a dandelion gives regeneration, while an allium gives jump boost.
  • Suspicious Stew is one of the few food items in Minecraft that can give both positive and negative status effects.
  • If a player has the Bad Omen status effect and eats Suspicious Stew, the effect will be removed.
  • Suspicious Stew can be used to feed a fox, and if the fox is tamed with the stew, it will become loyal to the player who fed it.
  • Suspicious Stew can also be used as a throwable item, and if it hits a mob, it will have the effect of the flower used to craft it.
  • Suspicious Stew is one of the only food items in Minecraft that can be used in a composter to create bonemeal.



In conclusion, suspicious stew in Minecraft is a unique and interesting addition to the game that adds a level of complexity to gameplay. While it may seem suspicious due to its mysterious nature, players can benefit greatly from it if used strategically. Whether players choose to make their own suspicious stew or find it in a dungeon or village, they should take the time to learn its various effects and use it wisely. With its varied effects, ranging from healing to poison to invisibility, suspicious stew is a powerful tool that can help players survive and thrive in the world of Minecraft. However, players should also be careful not to consume it blindly as some of its effects can be detrimental. Overall, suspicious stew adds an exciting element to the game and is worth trying out for any Minecraft player looking to expand their gameplay experience.
