Best Answer

Bay leaves as the leaf, powdered or crumbled are completely safe to eat. They are great for flavor in quick dishes or soups and strews. A lot of the time they aren't served in the dish because the texture isn't easy to eat. There is a choking hazard associated with bay leaves. If they are crumbled or powdered, that is not an issue.
