Nutritional yeast…the name sounded so healthy and certainly not a pantry staple at KosherEye. But, that was before we tried it. We came upon Parma! when we were searching for a recipe to make our own parve Caesar dressing. After some research on vegan sites, we discovered Parma!
So what is nutritional yeast? It is a concentrated source of protein, B complex vitamins, minerals, is easily digestible, and has a cheese-like flavor. In fact, it is considered a super food because the nutrients are plentiful and extremely concentrated. In the Parma brand, the yeast has been deactivated due to a pasteurization process, and is combined with walnuts, seeds, herbs and spices.
Parma is kosher certified parve (dairy free) by Oregon Kosher. It is also Vegan, Soy-free, Gluten-free, GMO-Free, and it is considered a complete protein. It is available in 4 kosher varieties and comes in a shaker jar.

Dandies are our new favorite marshmallows.
They are made with all natural ingredients, contain no high fructose corn syrup or gelatin (they're 100% vegan!), and are the first ever marshmallow to be Non-GMO Project Verified. Oh, and of course, they are kosher.
Traditional marshmallows are made with gelatin, so Dandies decided it was time for a makeover. Dandies Marshmallows taste just like a conventional marshmallow. Their light and fluffy “marshies” as they nicknamed them work for roasting over a fire, putting in hot chocolate, classic crispy treats, s'mores, or just snacking!
- Made with all natural ingredients
- Gelatin free (100% vegan)
- Free from most common allergens
- Gluten free
- Contains no corn syrup
- Made in a dedicated vegan facility

“An herb garden in your freezer”
As summer wanes and fall approaches, those fresh garden herbs we love sadly disappear. Yes, we’ve likely frozen some, but never enough to last through the long, cold winter. That’s just the reason we are now devoted fans of Darégal, OU kosher certified fresh frozen herbs
Darégal has been at the forefront of herbs in France since 1887. Five generations and more than 120 years later, the Darbonne family is still proud to own and operate Darégal. and has recently introduced an innovation for the home or professional cook. Their ready-to-use frozen chopped herbs can go directly from the freezer into any soup, sauce, salad, or spread, no thawing necessary. Simply remove the container from the freezer, give a little shake to loosen the chopped herbs, and sprinkle out the desired amount.
KosherEye has used and still uses other brands of frozen herbs, and they are certainly very helpful. The difference is that these herbs are pure—no slat, oils or additives.
They are washed, chopped, and packaged in easy to use shake and store containers, and have a long shelf life.
Kosher certified varieties include Basil, Parsley, Cilantro, Garlic
- Processed hours after harvest to preserve flavor and nutrients
- Washed, chopped and ready to use
- No salt, oil or preservatives
- OU kosher certified
