Quality of Standards:
What is Kosher?
The Hebrew word “kosher” literally means “fit.” It has come to refer more broadly to anything that is “above board” or “legit.” The laws of Kosher define the foods that are fit for consumption for a Jew. Kosher laws have their origin in the Bible, and are detailed in the Talmud and the other codes of Jewish traditions. They have been applied through the centuries to ever-changing situations, and these rulings, both ancient and modern, govern Kosher certification.
Why Kosher Supervision?
The intricacies of modern-day food technology make it virtually impossible for anyone but an expert in the field to know whether a processed food is free of any trace of non-kosher ingredients. So all processed foods and eating establishments require certification by a reliable Rabbi or Kashrut supervision agency.
What does Kosher certified mean?
Kosher Certification is the stamp of kosher approval by a rabbinic Agency verifying they have checked the products ingredients, production facility and actual production to ensure all ingredients, derivatives, tools and machinery have no trace of non kosher substances. The Kosher Certified symbol assures consumers that both the actual product and its production adhere to all Kosher Law requirements.
