It is real silver leaf, and it's fine. Silver is non reactive in your digestive system. It just goes right through. The only time you'd be in trouble is if you were eating big balls of the stuff and it blocked you up. Silver leaf is thin as tissue paper though.

Being that silver is about $17.50 per ounce right now I'm surprised that is an economical choice of preservative. Granted, that is why silver was the metal (and then plating) of choice well up into the 1950's due to its antimicrobial properties. Silver if still used in making acupuncture needles.

I'm actually kind of surprised that people don't know what those packets are. Lots of food comes with those little preservative packets in them, and lots of bottled medicines do as well. Heck, I've had shoes that had those tucked inside. I'm not blaming the OP, I'm just genuinely shocked that someone could go through life without running into those. For future reference: if something is sealed, and you don't know what it is- don't open and eat it.

Don't most of them even say NOT FOOD DO NOT EAT all over the packaging? Of course, the warning would probably not be in English this time, but still, it's kind of a no-brainer.
