i think a long time ago it was used to decorate the food and it was actually consumed. but i didn't know that still went on. i'd rather have jewelry
Yep, they eat it alright !!......I tried eating a gold coin once...I broke a tooth !!
You definitely couldn't digest it, it will just go straight through you... I think the leaf is so thin that you would have to eat a lot of chocolate before it would be worth mining your feces
Gold Leaf - actually gold in general is inert in the human body. If you consider the fact that aqua regia (Royal Water,) a mixture of nitric and hydrochloric acids is used to dissolve this precious metal, I don't think the weak acids of your stomach will dissolve it. Since it can't be dissolved by us mammals, it also ha no taste. Gold leaf on food just lays there and says to you "yes, I am so rich I can do this. MY, what do those common, smelly people outside of the palace do. Sigh - LET THEM EAT CAKE! sniff
