WHAT IS KOSHER?


The word “kosher”, which derives from the Hebrew word “kasher”, translates to “proper”, “acceptable”, or “fit”. It has Biblical origins and relates to Jewish dietary law. While kosher law as a whole is extensive and complex, kosher foods are generally divided into three main categories: meat, dairy, and pareve. 

Each of these categories provides specific guidelines on which foods can be consumed, which foods are forbidden to eat, and how permitted foods need to be prepared to be kosher-certified. As an example, permitted meats and other animals must be slaughtered in a specific manner. Additionally, meat and dairy products may not be manufactured or consumed together. 

There are many other rules and regulations that apply to kosher law. For more information, here are some helpful resources:

How does the kosher certification process work? 

Epicure works in partnership with Kosher Check, a non-profit global kosher certification agency that serves hundreds of food manufacturers around the world to certify products as kosher. 

Here’s how the certification process works: 

  1. Epicure sends detailed information to Kosher Check for review, including a list of products requesting certification, ingredients used, and the process of how/where the products are made, among other things. 
  2. A qualified Rabbi visits the Epicure plant to evaluate how the products are being made, carefully checking that each step is kosher-certified before filing a written report at the end of the tour. 
  3. The Epicure application and inspection report are reviewed by the Rabbinical Council who will determine if the Epicure products may be granted kosher certification. 
  4. The Rabbi sends a contract which details Kosher Check’s requirements for proper certification. If the contract is accepted by Epicure, it is signed and sent back to Kosher Check. 
  5. Epicure receives a letter of certification and may now use the Kosher Check symbol ( ) on any new product labels approved by Kosher Check. It is also important to note that there are other organizations around the world that use different symbols to certify their products as kosher, so doing your own research is encouraged.
