Genuine Gold Leaf

The genuine gold leaf is for both indoor and outdoor gilding. Genuine gold leaf is available from 6k white gold (gold and palladium mixed together) up to 24k Extra Thick Gold Leaf, green gold leaf has the addition of silver, and red gold leaf is a about 20% copper added to the gold. However, for outdoor gilding, you must use 23k and above to avoid oxidisation.

Edible Gold Leaf

Edible gold leafs are not the same gold leafs that used to decorate walls, furniture and valuable objects. Edible gold is not only made from genuine gold but also manufactured specifically for the food industry with strict safety standards; this means all the equipment are rubricated with vegetarian oil and not with toxic industrial oil.

Our edible gold leaf contain no chemicals, no vegetal extracts, no anti-oxidants, no bio additives, no preservatives, and no chelating agents.
