Edible Gold and Silver Leaf Facts

Facts about Edible Gold and Edible Silver Leaf

The difference between edible gold and regular gold leaf.

Pure gold leaf is 24 karat. In it pure state it is very soft and delicate. Therefore, it is typically mixed with other alloys to create different levels of hardness and to adjust the color tone of the leaf. That is why most jewelry is 18kt or 22kt gold (mixed with copper, etc.) because 24kt gold is too soft for daily wear and tear. Gold leaf is the same principle. Mostly mixed with copper, silver, etc. you can get a wide variety of colors, ranging from a slight reddish tone, to bright yellow, to white gold. The alloys mixed in to create these variances are not edible (like copper). Edible gold is almost pure gold, but mixed with silver only, which is edible, so it is completely digestible. Edible Silver leaf is also available, and we offer Edible Silver in leaf form and in powder, or dust form.


Ingesting edible gold leaf and edible silver leaf

Generally speaking, there is no danger in ingesting Edible Gold. Gold is an inert metal that simply passes through the intestinal system. Edible Gold will pass out of the body after about 24 hours unchanged without causing any harm or reaction on the body.


According to European Regulations, there is no limit to the quantity of Edible Gold that can be ingested (Quantum Satis), however, the idea is to impress ones eyes and not fill your stomach with Edible Gold Leaf.


Some historical facts about edible gold leaf

The Europeans have a very old tradition in using Edible Gold on Food. Italian Dukes and Earls used to decorate their risotto with Edible Gold leaves in the 16th century (Risotto Recipe - Risotto d’oro con basilica e parmagiano – available, along with many other recipes, upon the EdibleGold recipe center). Alchemists of the 15th century used gold medicinally. Sweets covered in Edible Gold were served during afternoon meals to sustain the health of their hearts. The Elizabethans created sumptuous banquets by adding Edible Gold Dust to their table on fruits such as oranges, grapes, pomegranates and dates and figs. The Japanese have been adding Edible Gold to foods and even to their sake for centuries.


23kt edible gold leaf

Where as the Europeans use 22kt gold leaves, we offer a special 23kt Edible Gold product, higher in purity and quality, exclusively to the US market. Our Edible Gold Leaf consists of nearly 96% pure genuine Gold mixed with a small amount of Silver, which is edible as well. There are no other components in our Gold leaf.


The alloy that was used for the flame of the ‘Statue of Liberty’ is of equivalent alloy as used for Edible Gold. The gilded flame has resisted all kinds of weather for many years without showing reaction on the monument.


Kosher Certification:

Edible Gold Leaf, Flake and Dust, produced by J. G. Eytzinger GmbH, is certified KOSHER PARVE (excluding Passover) by the Federation of Synagogues, 65 Watford Way, London NW4 3AQ. Certificate available upon request.

About Parve - When a food item is kosher, it doesn't mean it was blessed by a Rabbi, as is commonly thought. It means that it was prepared according to the strict kosher dietary laws, some of which include not mixing meat food items with dairy food items (when something is "parve," that means it contains neither dairy nor meat), not eating products of non-kosher animals or animals that were not ritually slaughtered, and not eating any shellfish. Not only does the food need to be kosher in order to conform to dietary laws, but the vessels and utensils used in preparing them need to be kosher as well.
