The Golden Touch


Want to impress your guests with golden eggs? Perhaps give lobster the Midas touch? With this new food coloring from Germany, gilding almost anything is possible.

Ess Lack, or Food Finish, is an edible spray that can give any food a metallic sheen.


The spray is flavorless, but contains ethanol and food dyes, which are controversial regarding the potential health issues associated with them.

Currently, the spray is not available in the United States. A spokesperson at the company claims that due to its packaging in a can, it is considered a dangerous good and is not able to be shipped overseas at this time. They are working on the necessary documents to make exporting possible in the future.
