24 Karat Edible Gold, A Culinary Visual Delight
Edible Gold Sheets, or loose leaf gold sheets, as they are often referred to in cake and pastry decorating application, are made out of 24 karat gold. Each sheet has been hammered down into flat, square sheets and is as thin as rice paper.
To make edible gold leaf, pure gold is melted down. Our 24 karat edible gold has to go through a series of steps before it is listed on our website. The basic steps are pouring, pounding, shaping, pressing, and more pounding.
Edible gold sheets are commonly used to add an aesthetic elegance or feeling of luxury to a dish. As such, it frequently appears on desserts at events, but more recently has been spotted on everything from sushi and champagne to burgers and wings.
Edible gold is odorless and tasteless and considered "biologically inert” in higher karats. So it is perfectly safe to ingest. Passing through the digestive tract without being absorbed, edible gold lends itself well to decorations of both sweet or savory cooking and baking.
When you buy 24 karat edible gold sheets from Slofoodgroup you can buy with confidence, knowing you are getting a top quality product.

How to apply Loose Leaf Edible Gold
*To use gold leaf:
Avoid touching edible gold leaf with your hands or fingers, as it will stick. Do not breath directly on your gold leaf because it will blow away or wrinkle up. Using a paring knife, tweezers, or a razor, cut away the portion of the gold sheet that you wish to use. Pick up the piece of gold using just the tip of your knife or tool and gently touch the item you are applying the gold leaf to; it should stick, as it applies very easily to surfaces.

My order arrived quickly and the product was just what I needed. There was a tiny oops, though. I was missing 2 sheets of the gold leaf. I called the customer service number and left a voice mail asking how to proceed. Less then 15 minutes later, I had a gentleman return my call and make arrangements to send replacement sheets. He quickly got my order taken care of and was very pleasant to deal with. I just received my replacement product and I am a happy camper. Have already used some of the 24 carat gold sheets and was very happy with the product and VERY happy with the quick response to my issue. I would not hesitate to order additional products from them.
The Loose Leaf Edible Gold Sheets, 24 Karat were perfect for my application. They came just as expected and arrived much quicker than I had hoped. I highly recommend buying from Slofoodgroup. What a joy it was to have someone answer the phone and be happy to address my questions within a few minutes of dialing their number. That is a rarity in this day and age. I will definitely be purchasing from them again. Thank you soooo much!
First time ordering and using gold leaf. The hard press might have been easier to work with as a beginner, but with practice, it worked out beautifully. Great product and fast delivery. Will definitely order again!
I've order both silver and gold leaf here and the products are top quality. Every leaf is packed perfectly with no tears or missing pieces, not even a crease or fold between paper layers. The silver is authentic as it will tarnish if left exposed to air. Make sure you repackage when finished using so that the sheets stay polished and perfect. Will reorder in the near future!
This gold leaf was fabulous and looked amazing on the cake. I tried to order gold leaf from a different brand and it turned out to be fake. This brand is absolutely legit and I would highly recommend it.
