Food and Drink, one of the four primary categories of loot in DayZ, refers to any item or liquid that can be consumed by a survivor for sustenance. Used to replenish a survivor's energy and hydration, food and drink is perhaps the most important of the four categories of loot. Food typically replenishes both energy and hydration, while drink typically only replenishes hydration.

As of Update 1.10, food now decays over time. This is only applied to (as of 1.10) meat and vegetables, with fruit and mushrooms being scripted to do so in the near future.
All foods have a certain amount of hours it will be good to eat/cook, before it spoils and will become inedible. Food will decay between 75-100% of their time limit, which makes certain types of food and the way you prepare them all the more important.
Food will also spoil faster in the players inventory than in a tent or elsewhere on the server.
