Food Stat Effects

When you're cooking food in BOTW, you can create dishes with various stat effects to help you throughout the game. To do this, add in items that will give you the desired result. Below you'll find the words used for each effect on your recipe or item and what they do when eaten.

Name Effect
Hearty Refills hearts
Energizing Refills stamina
Fireproof Flame guard
Spicy Resistance from cold
Chilly Resistance from heat
Enduring Additional stamina
Electro Resistance from shock
Hasty Speed boost
Sneaky Stealth boost
Mighty Strength boost
Tough Defense boost

You won't want to mix two items that have these effects in one recipe, as they will cancel out, and you'll end up with no impact at all.

Also, you can add more of an effect-producing ingredient in your dishes to increase the strength of the effect.
