Unexpected Things You Can Actually Eat


Gold is biologically inert, which means it does not chemically react and it can pass through the digestive system without being absorbed into the intestine. This is the reason why we see it as a decoration in many deserts featuring chocolate. 24-carat gold is usually sold in sheets or in flakes — this makes it the purest form of gold for consumption. If the gold leaves have less than a 24-carat value it becomes less pure due to other chemical ingredients and it is not as safe to eat.
