Although reputedly mild tasting,[8] eating it will result in vomiting which generally occurs 30 minutes to two hours after consumption and lasts for several hours. There is no diarrhea and patients recover without lasting ill-effects. The toxic ingredient is thought to be a sesquiterpene compound known as illudin, which is also responsible for its bioluminescence.
