Q. What is Edible Gold Leaf?

A. Edible gold leaf is a gold product that can be used to decorate food. In candy-making it can be used to cover whole candies like chocolates or truffles, or applied sparingly as a small decorative touch. “ (src.)

Q. Is Gold Leaf Really Edible?

A. Yes! Gold is considered “biologically inert,” meaning it passes through the digestive tract without being absorbed. When selecting gold leaf, make sure to get gold that is as pure as possible–this means 22-24 carats. Gold leaf with a smaller carat value has more impurities and is less safe to eat. If you are careful and buy gold leaf that is clearly labelled as “edible” and has 22-24 carats, eating gold leaf is harmless.”
