Edible Gold Leaf is a gold product that can be used to decorate food and beverages. Gold is considered biologically inert, meaning it passes through the digestive system without being absorbed, thus eating gold leaf is harmless. Edible Gold Leaf is made from 23ct or 24ct gold and can be purchased in full leaf, dust, flakes or petals from Connoisseur Gold. We also supply Sainsbury and Waitrose supermarket with a small booklets of 2 leaves 23ct Gold Leaf 50 x 50mm priced at £3. Wow, at this cost there is no excuse for a decadent finish.
