This series follows the technology used to make products we regularly come in contact with, explaining its contents and related science and technology. In this episode we introduce gold leaf. In order to make the gold leaf easy to stretch, silver and copper is mixed with gold by melting it at 1,300 degrees Celsius. After the gold alloy is thinned by running it through rollers, it is placed between sheets of special Japanese washi paper, and then pounded and thinned out until it’s thinned to a width of one ten-thousandth of a millimeter.
A New York City food truck is selling a 666-dollar hamburger dubbed the “Douche Burger,” which contains lobster, caviar, truffles, and a beef patty wrapped in six sheets of gold leaf. How much gold leaf can you safely consume?
Theoretically, you could eat your fill of 24-karat gold without falling ill. Pure gold is chemically inert and passes through the human digestive system without being absorbed into the body. Since 24-karat gold is soft and fragile, most edible gold—whether leaf, flakes, or dust—also contains a little bit of silver, which is also inert.
Non-edible gold leaf used for gilding sometimes contains copper, which can be toxic in high doses. Consuming impure gold preparations such as colloidal gold or gold salts could change your skin color or cause other health problems.
The FDA hasn’t evaluated edible gold leaf for safety, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry doesn’t consider it a toxic substance. Gold is an approved food additive in the European Union, and gold and silver leaf are also certified kosher.
Europeans have been adding gold leaf to food and liquor since the Renaissance, and gold leaf can also be found adorning certain Japanese candies and South Asian pastries. Homeopaths have prescribed gold as a treatment for everything from heart disease, to depression, though the medicinal properties of gold haven’t really been proven.
Pure gold is calorie free, But like too much of anything, eating a lot of it can give you a stomach ache, even though it has no taste. But you didn’t need a scientist to tell you that any aspect of the douche burger was tasteless, did you?
