There is evidence to suggest that 24 karat gold is safe to eat in small amounts. In fact, gold has been used as a food additive and decorative ingredient in various cultures throughout history. Here are a few examples:
According to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), gold leaf and gold dust are classified as "generally recognized as safe" (GRAS) for use as a food decoration, with the stipulation that they are made from pure, edible gold.
In traditional Indian and Middle Eastern cuisines, gold leaf and gold powder have been used for centuries as a decorative element on desserts and drinks.
In Japan, gold leaf is used as a garnish for sushi and other dishes.
A study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry found that gold nanoparticles (which are similar in size to particles of gold leaf or gold dust) did not have any toxic effects on human cells in vitro.
Edible gold itself does not have a taste, as it is essentially flavorless. However, the process of adding edible gold to food or beverages can impact the overall flavor profile of the dish. For example, some people may describe dishes that have been garnished with gold leaf as having a slightly metallic texture, while others may not notice any difference in taste at all. Ultimately, the flavor of a dish that incorporates edible gold will depend on the specific recipe and how the gold is used.
