First of all, it is important we tell you that none of these is fake gold
This isn’t some gold looking colour that is sprinkled on the food to make it look this way.
These are real 24 karat gold-covered foods!!
These things are called gold leaves and are real gold, pounded to become so thin you can wrap it around any food to basically decorate it and make it look more bling bling!
Fun fact, these gold leaves are only made from pure gold and nothing less than 22 carats which is why all of these foods are made from 24k!!!
These are real foods that have been sold in all parts of the world!!
Wake up like a boss!!

The fun part about all this is, the gold has no nutritional value! When this edible gold is eaten, it passes through the digestive tract without being absorbed so it doesn’t really cause any harm unless cheap gold is used!!
The use of gold on food is purely for aesthetics.
