Are Foods That Use Pure Gold Safe For Consumption?
I want to ask if food that is coated in real gold is safe to eat and what are the side effects for the body? Like the most expensive food in the world today, which is coated in gold
Hello Nabil Ramadhan,
Gold used as food decoration or food coatings is made from 24 carat gold (pure gold). 24-carat gold is inert in the body, meaning that it does not have any effect on the inner lining of the digestive tract and will come back out with feces. Gold with a higher carat level is usually softer than gold with a lower carat level. European Food Safety Administration issued a type of gold E-175 which is allowed to be used as food. Presentation of gold in food can be in the form of powder, layers, or garniche. Gold in food only aims to enhance and enhance the value / price of the dish.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
