Valheim Wiki

The player is able to consume 3 different types of food at a time, and stack buffs from each food item. The buff strength decreases uniformly until it vanishes when the food is fully digested. Food buffs have variable durations; move your crosshair over the food to view how much health/stamina a specific food item will provide, as well as how long the effects will last. The player cannot eat more than one of the same type of food before the the previously consumed food item is partially digested (half the standard time - indicated by the food item blinking, visually represented in the lower left of the screen).

Starvation is not possible in Valheim, but food provides valuable buffs to a player's health, stamina, and regeneration rate. You can't "replace" what you have already eaten until the food you previously consumed has been partially digested, completely digested, or thrown up (by eating bukeperries.) Attempt to balance the three types of food you consume based on the activities you are performing. For example, consume food items with higher stamina buffs during exploration or resource gathering, and eat food items that give higher health and health regeneration for dungeons and boss fights.

Bukeperries let you clear out your previously eaten foods, and eat new foods again.

Effect decay

Over time the buffs applied by food will fade away, gradually at first, but rapidly speeding up just as the buff is about to end

The equation for this decay is:

In practice this means that when the food is 30% through it's duration, it's effects are only 90% what they were at the start, and by 60% through they are only 76% effective, finally by 90% of the way through the duration, the food is only giving 50% of its effects.
