The title compound, C10H15NO7, consists of one methyl­enedi­oxy ring and two fused tetra­hydro­furan rings. The three fused rings exhibit cis arrangements at the ring junctions. One O atom of a tetra­hydro­furan ring and the H atoms bound to the neighboring C atoms are disordered over two orientations with site-occupancy factors of 0.69 (1) and 0.31 (1). intra­molecular O—H⋯O and C—H⋯O inter­actions stabilize the mol­ecular conformation. In the crystal structure, inter­molecular O—H⋯O and C—H⋯O inter­actions link the mol­ecules into a three-dimensional network.
