Spider eye is a poisonous food and brewing item. It is dropped by Spiders, Cave Spiders, and witches. Spider eyes are mainly used to craft fermented spider eyes and brew mundane and poison potions. It can be eaten, but will poison the player for four seconds.
When eaten, a spider eye restores 2 () hunger points and 3.2 saturation points, giving a nourishment value of 1.6. It also applies a poison effect lasting 4 seconds to the player, causing 4 () of damage.
Even though spider eyes cause poison, if a player is already near its minimum health and needs only a few hunger points to start healing, it can be more handy to use the spider eye rather than actual food. Otherwise, the damage done will cost 12 hunger/saturation points to heal, dwarfing the 5.2 given by eating it.
