Sugar pearls, are they actually edible? - Page 2

post #16 of 19

looks like some of the sugar pearls are going the way of silver dragees which had been banned in california--probably still are

 

i have read (not recently) that one man (a lawyer?)  got all out of whack about dragees and single handedly got this ban pushed through

 

i can attest to the fact that california is very very ticky about paints and glues and products like that

 

product sales to california mean printing thee most detailed and articulate not to mention hairy scary warnings on labels

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

i don't want to eat mica--i don't think it's entirely edible

 

there are lots of different kinds of ferric oxide and some of it is not water soluble so that doesn't sound too good

 

unless it would do something wonderful like dissolve cellulite i can't see any reason to eat that either

 

???

not to mention insurance companies have a tremendous hold on our lives--this could be an insurance related nod to the fact that eating several bottles a day for two weeks could result in something dire

 

i don't know

Which I believe are all edible ingredients?
If the only reason is the breaking of teeth I am happy to put them on the cake, as I think most people see those things and know they are so hard and remove them if they don't want to eat them.
 

Definitely edible, especially in the way that you want to use them

 

I believe the warning on the bottle is for people (including children) who might eat these as candy straight from the bottle.

I missed the post that ha the ingredients icon_redface.gif sorry! Yeah, they may not be food, but they are edible.
Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.
