Calvisius Caviar is proud to introduce a selection of edible gold products from The Gold Chef lineup by Giusto Manetti Battiloro, a leading company in the production of gold and silver leaf.
The Manetti family has been practicing the noble art of goldbeating for more than four hundred years.
The Gold Chef product line is made from controlled, certified and responsible raw materials.
All processing is carried out in Florence, in a production facility that has been authorized by the Italian health department and the Food and Drug Administration for the production and sale of food additives.
The entire process, which is subject to 10 distinct control stages, is carried out in full compliance with the most stringent European Community regulations on food production.
The products contain only pure gold, whose production is fully traceable.
NOT JUST EDIBLE
In order to be used in the food industry, edible gold must have a minimum gold content of 90% (corresponding to gold with a purity of at least 21.6 carats), and a copper content not exceeding 4%.
Gold Chef Gold is 23kt gold, therefore even more pure than required by law, and – unlike the edible gold that is available on the market from other manufacturers – it does not contain copper, a metal that is harmful to the body.
HYPOALLERGENIC AND IMPERCEPTIBLE
Gold Chef silver is 100% pure. Gold Chef gold does not contain copper.
The choice not to use copper is a guarantee of excellent quality.
The gold is hypo-allergenic and has no trace of a metallic taste.
The absence of copper, moreover, makes it possible for Giusto Manetti Battiloro to make the gold in the thinnest thicknesses on the market and to make sure the powder, crumbs, flakes and gold leaf are absolutely imperceptible to the palate.
GLUTEN FREE, KOSHER AND VEGAN
Gold Chef gold and silver products are produced without the use of raw materials of animal origin and without gluten.
Gold Chef products are certified as suitable for use in Kosher kitchens.
The gold in the Gold Chef product line is traced and responsible and comes exclusively from countries where there are no human rights violations for gold procurement.
