I’m a bit skeptical of the price difference, and the fact that the Sprinks option (and similar) does not specify 24k gold.
Is Sprinks made of a different material? I bought a bottle and the ingredients are listed as “Color (E175)”. E175 is the EU approved value for edible gold. But I just can’t get past the fact that it’s so much cheaper. What am I missing?
The price difference you’ve observed between Sprinks Edible Gold Leaf Flakes and other products claiming to be “24 karat edible gold flakes” could be attributed to several factors such as composition, manufacturing process and branding and marketing. Especially the branding part, sometimes, companies’ presence and acceptance by consumers can allow them to increase prices of their products without suffering losses because of customer loyalty.
