Items can be removed from the room. There's no good indication that they disappear over time.

‘when Winky has been very drunk; he has hidden her in the Room of Requirement and he has found antidotes to Butterbeer there, and a nice elf-sized bed to settle her on while she sleeps it off, sir … and Dobby knows Mr Filch has found extra cleaning materials there when he has run short, sir, and –’

  • The Room can't create food. " I went through it and met Aberforth. He’s been providing us with food, because for some reason, that’s the one thing the room doesn’t really do" -Neville in Book 6...which means that the Butterbeer antidotes weren"t really conjured by the room. They were already stored in that room. They were Real Objects, not Conjured Ones...The Room just summoned those antidotes from their place...

  • Also: Food is one of the 5 exceptions to Gamp's Law of Elemental Transfiguration...Butterbeer antidotes can be consumed and digested....therefore they count as food

    @Mr.Riddle - You're assuming that magical potions count as food. For all you know, they count as water which we know can be summoned magically.

    @Mr.Riddle - The room only conjures items when needed. I rather suspect that conjuring them for sale to the public doesn't count,
