Kosher Certification

What is the Kosher Certificate?

The Kosher Certificate is a document issued by certification bodies and the Leader of Israel, in which a Rabbi certifies that the products mentioned meet the biblical principles of the Jewish religion. This certificate is required not only for Israel but also for other countries where there are Jewish communities requesting kosher products. To be Kosher certified, all ingredients in each product - and the product manufacturing process - must also be certified orthodox to kosher. Kosher certificates are required for food-specific: meat (animal slaughter and salting), fish, milk and eggs, canned and preserved foods. They also include feed additives (preservatives and dyes) and fiber of animal origin. Products that are kosher certified are often marked with a kosher symbol, or simply the letter K.
