Kosher Product

Kosher foods are those that conform to the regulations of kashrut (Jewish dietary law). Food that may be consumed according to halakha (Jewish law) is termed kosher in English, from the Ashkenazi pronunciation of the Hebrew term kash�r, meaning "fit" (in this context, fit for consumption). Food that is not in accordance with Jewish law is called treif (Yiddish or treyf, derived from Hebrew tref�h). A list of some kosher foods are found in the book of Leviticus 11:1-47, as are also certain kosher rules. Reasons for food not being kosher include the presence of ingredients derived from nonkosher animals or from kosher animals that were not slaughtered in the ritually proper manner, a mixture of meat and milk, wine, or grape juice (or their derivatives) produced without supervision, the use of produce from Israel that has not been tithed, or the use of non-kosher cooking utensils and machinery.

Meat
Kosher meat comes from an animal that that has two defining characteristics: it must have cloven hooves and chew its cud.

Fowl
There is not a defined set of physical characteristics that determines if a bird is kosher or not, but Jewish tradition states that chicken, turkey, duck, goose and quail are kosher fowl and may be eaten. Eggs are also acceptable, but only if they come from kosher fowl.

Seafoodl
Only fish that has both fins and scales are considered kosher.

Dairy
Milk and dairy products made from the milk of kosher animals are allowed. However, other ingredients used in dairy products such as cheese or yogurt may render the product nonkosher.

Pareve
Pareve includes grains, fruits, vegetables, wines and other foods that do not fall into the meat or dairy categories. Most breads, cereals, snacks and frozen or canned foods are considered kosher as long as nonkosher ingredients are not added. Check food ingredients or labels to be sure a product is kosher. Fresh fruits and vegetables must be washed and inspected for insects before eating to ensure they are kosher.

Common Kosher Dishes
Common dishes likely to be found at a kosher table include hummus, couscous, challah, goulash (a thick meat and vegetable stew), blintzes (a thin pancake filled with cottage cheese or fruit), borscht (a beet and vegetable soup) and kugel (a sweet or savory noodle casserole). Many popular dishes can be made kosher by using all kosher ingredients and adhering to Jewish food laws regarding cooking.
