I really enjoy using luster dust to decorate my chocolates as do many chocolatiers. While what I have been using has been noted as non-toxic and not a food ingredient, I do not know how much or to what extent I can safely use it. I am aware that FDA approved luster dust is available and would like to know who uses it exclusively or any other feedback.Thank you.

I only use EDIBLE luster dust. If it's not clearly marked edible I prefer not to use it.

Thanks everyone for the feedback valuable information. It happens that Crystal Colors is one that I am ordering to work with and may decide to use exclusively if I like.

I don't wear contacts, but if I did I'd be willing to try it out. I wish they had more pics of other colors.

Chef Rubber might have a kosher-certified luster dust that is FDA approved. One way to apply is to mix with melted cocoa butter and decorating the insides of the molds.

The stuff I get from QZINA is certified Kosher--blessed by Rabbi Schlessinger himself.

I'd still love to know what is in that stuff..........

Two changes we made with the chocolate is that this time we winnowed the chocolate. This time we didn't use a blow dryer to melt the chocolate. Two improvements with the chocolate is that the melanger didn't get clogged this time and everyone put in work.
