About This File


This mod displays what food and healing items have what hunger, health, sanity values (including rotting).

It will work for items in inventory, backpack or in containers.

You can use ALT button (force inspect) or button 'Y' if you use controller to see how many days there are left until food spoils.


Just go to steam\steamapps\common\dont_starve\mods and place the folder located in the .zip archive

Once you've done that run the game and go to "Mods" menu.

Find mod "DisplayFoodValues" and enable it.

Also see the instructions in forum thread
