independent Certification

The OU symbol belongs to the Orthodox Union.The OU has been certifying kosher products for over 80 years. Their first kosher certification went to Heinz. In 1923 Heinz Vegetarian Beans became the first American product to display the OU kosher symbol. The Torah lists the basic categories of food items which are not kosher. These include certain animals, fowl and fish (such as pork and rabbit, eagle and owl, catfish and sturgeon), most insects, and any shellfish or reptile. In addition, kosher species of meat and fowl must be slaughtered in a prescribed manner, and meat and dairy products may not be manufactured or consumed together.

Kosher Supervision of America is a not-for-profit Kashrus agency recognized by rabbinical associations throughout the world."Kosher" is a Hebrew term originally used to denote food that is fit and proper. It refers to the set of Jewish dietary laws and regulations that govern the selection, packaging and preparation of food. It means that a given product is permitted or acceptable for consumption within this Code of Jewish Law. For those who follow this code, it is done for both health and religious reasons. Given the complex nature of the laws of Judaism one should consult a Rabbi when a personal question of Kosher may arise.
