Is it safe eat fresh Amanita Muscaria?
    #11068691 - 09/16/09 07:09 AM (4 years, 11 months ago)

So, I have one fresh Amanita Muscaria cap. I cant dry it in an oven because I still live with my parents and drying it any other way takes too long...

So, can I eat it fresh? I probably get some diarrhea, but I can handle it. But I wont die or need to go to hospital, right?

You should be fine.  I've eaten fresh ones before.  One time I puked (that was a similar species not muscaria).  Another time I ate one of the yellow fly's fresh and I was fine.

You definitely won't die though.  Go for it.

Why don't you google

"Can you eat Amanita Muscaria fresh?"

You may just find your answer in like 10 seconds.

Many people talk about cutting the gills away and not eating them. Why? Should I do it?

I'd feel quite unsafe googling anything in the amanita group, it's nice to get a better answer on the shroomery.

Eating fresh fly agaric will not kill you, unless you eat several dozen.... and really, a dozen is much more than you need. Depending on size, 3-4 is usually good for visionary stupefacient effects, while 1-2 are good for GABA-ergic inebriation.

Fresh ones are not poisonous.  While everyone always says that the drying process is necessary to convert the ibotenic acid to muscimol, I believe this point is over-emphasized superstitiously.  Nowhere near all of the ibotenic acid is converted to muscimol by drying (if it were, then your urine wouldn't be psychoactive after eating them; psychoactivity of the urine is due to ibotenic acid cleared from the bloodstream by the kidneys).  Undoubtedly some ibotenic acid is converted, so you might require a slightly larger dose of fresh mushrooms to achieve the same effects as dry ones. (Ibotenic acid is less potent than muscimol, and its activity seems to be due exclusively to the fraction of it that your body decarboxylates to form the primary active, muscimol)

There are even people who claim that the unpleasant physical side-effects are greater with the dried mushrooms than the fresh ones, and my experience tends to support this notion.  The fear of eating them fresh doesn't seem to be borne out by the literature as far as I can tell.

If you plan on eating fly agarics with any regularity, it's not a bad idea to take a milk thistle supplement (very very tiny amounts of the liver-damaging amatoxins that make the deathcap so poisonous have been detected in fly agarics), and to eat plenty of garlic. (Ibotenic acid is neurotoxic; if it passes the blood-brain barrier, it can cause lesions in the brain. It seems quite unlikely that it passes the blood-brain barrier in any significant quantity, if it passes at all. But just in case it does, garlic contains a compound called S-allyl-l-cysteine which protects against ibotenic acid neurotoxicity)

And enjoy them tasty mushrooms! What part of the world are you from that they're showing their heads already?

Also, be sure you've properly ID'd them! Contrary to popular belief, there are some lookalike species that can be mistaken for the fly agaric unless you closely examine the base of the stipe (see the Fly Agaric Hunting Guide in my sig... Amanita frostiana and Amanita parcivolvata can be particularly convincing look-alikes)




i found this within 2 seconds  of searching "eat fresh amanita"

I've put the point back into the shroomery, now practice searching
