Raw human meat is used in taming bears, creating head pillars, and if you want to, you can cook it and it turn into Cooked Human Meat. Raw human meat restores 30 hunger.

Raw human meat is dropped when a player reaches 0 health, along side all of the other items the player had in his/her inventory. As of now, it also has a very slim chance to be obtained through fishing.

It can be also obtained by killing yourself by resetting your character, get killed by an animal or burning yourself.
