Let Them Eat Gold: Why This Luxury Food Staple Is Doing More Harm Than Good
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

You’ve seen it in Forbes, in Guinness World Records and all over the internet, the Frrrozen Haute Chocolate ice cream sundae (yes, that’s not a typo and we don’t know why there’s a lot of R’s) made by famed New York eatery, Serendipity 3 is the most expensive dessert in the world costing $25,000 (£12,000). And it you guessed it, contains a seriously insane amount of gold. Like 5 grams of 24-carat gold mixed in the treat, not to mention all that edible gold leaf lined up around the goblet. Add to that the $2,600 La Madeline au Truffle from Knipschildt Chocolatier specially flown in from France, and this is just a garnish. It’s made from a blend of 28 cocoas which 14 from them are of the most expensive cocoas of the world. To complement this luxurious dessert, you eat it with a spoon lined with white diamonds which you can take home! If that’s not enough, the base of the dessert goblet has an 18-karat gold bracelet with a carat of white diamonds.

Sounds like a treat fit for a king? Hell to the no. Gold though used since ancient times as garnish for food are still metals. Though not strong as the gold you find in jewelry, edible gold is around 24 carats and melts into your mouth while eating it without making the food feel crunchy or taste metallic and is still be able to pass through the body. But exceed 24 carats then you may suffer from stomach irritation. Also make sure the gold eating is pure gold. Pure gold is soft and moldable, the gold that we see in watches and jewelry requires silver, copper or bronze mixed in to harden it and this kind of gold when ingested can cause severe stomach irritation. Gold is indeed economically valuable and luxurious but not safe to eat.

A Safe Way To Eat With Gold

Not veering far from the concept how would you feel if you can actually eat with gold all with just a thin plastic? That is what Bitgold is aiming for. In its mission to make gold truly available to anyone they just released the first gold-backed prepaid card in the world. The GoldMoney Prepaid MasterCard is your Bitgold-connected credit card, meaning you can now eat and pay for your meals with the gold from your Bitgold account. You can even pay for your morning coffee or your groceries, putting your hard-earned gold into practical, safe, more accessible and convenient use. You can even do cash withdrawal for any ATM that accepts MasterCard, Maestro or Cirrus. Though it’s only Available in USD, GBP and EUR, there’s no update yet whether it will roll out to other currencies. Now you can swipe away and eat with gold!
