Edible gold is a particular type of gold authorized by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a food additive under the code E 175 and is perfectly safe to ingest. It is odorless and tasteless and considered "biologically inert” in higher karats. There are no negative effects from eating gold and it is suitable for use in food since it does not oxidize or corrode unlike many other metals. Most important is to only process quality gold leafs as cheaper versions contain impurities. The purity of edible gold must be between 23 & 24 karats.

The effects and safety of E 175 were first evaluated back in 1975 and re-evaluated in 2016 by EFSA when using the metal as an additive or food coloring. EFSA & FDA have authorized the use of gold as food additive in the external coating of confectionery, decoration of chocolates and in liqueurs.
