Ramaria acrisiccescens is believed to be mildly poisonous. It is one of a few Ramaria species that are suspected of causing mild gastrointestinal upset, though none have caused a very severe poisoning. Ramaria acrisiccescens is unlikely to be eaten in quantity because on drying or cooking, it develops a pronounced bitterish-acid taste. However, some yellow Ramaria species resembling Ramaria aurea can cause significant diarrhea.
