Kosher Apps

Is it kosher? App: A new App for iPad and mobile devices, shares lists of kosher fish, animals and sushi. This app educates and informs consumers as to whether an animal is considered inherently kosher. Kosher preparation, certification and kosher slaughter (shechita) of course would be necessary for kashrut. This app is handy for “kosher on the go” consumers and shoppers as a first step toward understanding kosher. This app is priced at .99. iTunes.

OU Kosher App: The OU has introduced an App to search the kosher status of all OU products for Passover and year-round. The free app is available for download for iPhones, iPads, iPod Touch, and Androids at the OU website or directly from ITunes

Kosher Cookbook App: Kudos to KosherEye friend Gloria Kobrin for her kosher recipe app, the Kosher Cookbbook. This app is priced at $1.99 and available for iPhone and iPad and available for download from iTunes.

Sending Edible Flowers

KosherEye friend, Gilly Cannon shared her delightful Purim Mishlach Manot theme with us and we are sharing it with you. It is very clever, cost effective, and totally delightful.We suggest that this is a wonderful idea year round!

"Sending ( edible) Flowers. My son and I used flower molds from Michaels to make chocolate roses and daisies. We used melted chocolate and cake decorations to cover Oreos and sprinkles to put on pretzels and cookies we had left over. I found party bags in a flower vase shape – 15 for $2.00 at Target and we made Purim messages from blank business cards with a flower stuck in the corner. I also wrote about the idea on my blog and explained that we received so much love and care when my husband had brain surgery recently that we are so glad to be able to give and receive in equal parts this Purim, by “sending flowers” to our friends as well as receiving mishloach manot from them." Thank you Gilly for sharing –  visit her blog Brainstorm. There are pictures there too!

Hagafen Kosher Wine at the White House

At the luncheon following the March 5th historic meeting between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, wine from Hagafen Cellars was served. Hagafen Cellars was honored to offer 2010 Lodi Roussanne, a luscious dry white wine, perfect for the occasion.  This marks a more than 30 year, long–-standing relationship between the Hagafen Napa Valley winery and the White House. According to Hagafen winemaker/founder Ernie Weir “It is an honor and pleasure to have had our wines enjoyed at the White House over the course of the past decades by the leaders of our country and their guests.”

Reader Question

We received an important question from a KosherEye reader and posed this question to Naftali Hanau, CEO and Founder of Grow and Behold Foods.

Q: Do you know if kosher meat sold in the U.S. comes from animals fed on animal based feed?
A: It's very hard to generalize about "kosher meat sold in the US" coming from feed that contains animals. Kosher meat sold in the US comes from many different producers, and some meat comes from other countries. Practices for feeding vary widely. If you are concerned about eating beef that may have had animal by-products in it's diet, look for claims on the label or from the producer that the beef is "vegetarian-fed". This is a commonly made claim, and most domestic produced kosher beef likely meets this standard. It's worth noting that vegetarian fed as a claim does not have any implications for animal welfare or nutritional profile of the meat. At Grow and Behold Foods, our cattle are fed a pastured-based diet consisting ogrowandbeholdlogof grass and grains, never animal by–products.

Kosher for Passover Quinoa

There has been much discussion regarding quinoa and whether it can be used during Passover. The following bulletin was sent by the CRC, Chicago Rabbinical Council:,

Rabbi Sholem Y. Fishbane
Kashruth Administrator

February 28, 2012

In 2007 HaRav Gedalia Dov Schwartz, Shlit”a, the Av Beis Din of the Chicago Rabbinical Council, issued a p’sak that quinoa is not considered kitniyos and therefore may be used on Pesach. Most of the quinoa comes from Peru and Bolivia and has been grown in areas where other (problematic for Pesach) grains were generally not grown. However, as the popularity of quinoa has risen, this is no longer the absolute case.  This was confirmed this year by a Star-K mashgiach who visited Bolivia and found that barley does indeed grow in those areas. It was also recently discovered that some farmers cover their quinoa with barley and/or oats to keep the birds from eating the quinoa while it dries. Finally, there is a concern that the sacks used to transfer the quinoa may have been previously used to hold barley or oats.

We have, therefore, determined that the only way to allow quinoa for use on Pesach is to track the quinoa from certain farms that are free from the above concerns. The Star-K spearheaded this endeavor and sent a mashgiach to find such a farm. While they were successful in their search, it proved to be challenging from a practical point of view, as the company visited generally sells their products in large quantities. The Star-K has now worked with other companies to pack the usable quinoa into smaller packages, and the following three options have been approved for Pesach quinoa consumption:

http://www.quinoa.net/; (310) 217-8125

It is important to note that even the quinoa from the above approved sources should be carefully checked before Pesach for any foreign matter before use. This can be done by spreading the quinoa out on a plate and carefully checking there are no other grains or foreign matter mixed in.

The cRc would like to thank Rabbi Zvi Goldberg of the Star-K and Rabbi Reuven Nathanson of the OU for their help on researching this issue.
