In some multiplayer games it is necessary to hide from other players. On one occasion I had to eat food while hiding; the loud chewing sound alerted a player to my presence who then found and killed me.

Is there a way to eat quietly? If not to maintain stealth, just to have good table manners.


The only way would be a cake, the placement sound is much quieter and eating it makes no sound.

Otherwise only resource packs can disable eating sounds, but of course only for yourself.

    Also, a cake can be eaten a few times and takes almost no time to eat (based on what I've seen). It's like if you were punching the cake to get a slice. it has the disadvantage that you have to place it somewhere. If you are hidding somewhere where you only have a 2x1 area, you will still have to resort to loud food. Jul 24 '19 at 9:11

    Cake also provides almost no saturation and isn’t stackable, so is impractical to carry
