Edible Gold Leaf
Edible gold leaf is made exclusively for the food industry. Both the United States and the European Union authorised the gold and silver leaf as a consumable metal under the code E175. The leafs are so thin that they will disintegrate in your mouth instantly.
Edible gold leafs are not the same gold leafs that used to decorate objects. These gold leaves are not only made from genuine gold but also manufactured specifically for the food industry with strict safety standards, whereas the imitation gold leaves are made from zinc, copper and other alloys.

Genuine Gold Leaf
Genuine gold leafs are for indoor and out door gilding. However, for outdoor gilding you must use at least 23k to avoid oxidisation. Genuine gold leafs are available in Transfer and in Loose. The Transfer leafs are best for out door gilding where wind and draft make it difficult to handle the loose leafs. For Headstone gilding we recommend small 4x4cm 24k Gold leaf and the 8x8cm 23k gold leaf Booklet Transfer, both are best sellers to headstone manufacturers.
