The Hebrew word “kosher” means “permitted / pure” and is part of the Jewish dietary laws. The laws are part of the Torah, which consists of 248 commandments and 365 prohibitions and is the first part of the Hebrew Bible.

The most important nutritional commandments at a glance:
- Meals are generally divided into meaty, milky and neutral. As meat products only mammals are allowed, which are ruminants and split shore (cattle, sheep, goats & fallow deer). Poultry is only kosher if it has been bred. In addition, the meat must be slaughtered according to Jewish standards.
- Meat and milk must never be eaten together. There must be at least 6 hours between the consumption of the two types of food.
- Neutral food is for example eggs, vegetables or fruits and they may be eaten with everything.
If a company wants to produce kosher food, it must first obtain certification. During certification, raw material details including suppliers, product groups, processes and recipes must be disclosed. In addition, a separation of the production of meaty and milky goods and kosher cleaning of the production facilities must be guaranteed. Slaughterhouses must have specially trained personnel for the slaughter of animals.
