Food is a group-name for items that restore a slight amount of health when consumed. They cannot be carried around like Sokolov's Elixirs and S&J Health Elixirs; 'using' a foodstuff will result in it being consumed immediately, even when at full health. While food is never as effective as using an elixir would be, it can often be used to refill smaller amounts of health where using an elixir would be wasteful, or else in an emergency, should an elixir not be readily available.
