Zomick’s Kosher Bakery - Introduction to Kosher Dietary Rules

Here you can find some basic rules related to kosher food that Zomick’s Kosher Bakery team is summarizing for you. First of all, Kosher refers to a set of rules regarding food and food preparation. If you follow these rules while preparing your food, this food is considered as kosher. Individuals, who follow by kosher dietary rules, are considered to be kosher. In addition, this diet involves rules in regards of some ingredients or that should be avoided, but also, there are some foods that need to be consumed. For example, the meat-consuming rule says that we can consume the meat from the animals that are able to both chew their cud and have split hooves. A very crucial thing about meat-consuming is the way animal was previously slaughtered and drained of blood, claim the Zomick’s Bakery team.

Basic rules related to kosher food

Moreover, the fowl and fish are involved in kosher rules. There is a list of about 20 different species of birds that are not allowed to be consumed (that list excludes both the chicken and turkey). It is only allowed to consume the fish that have fins and scales. On one hand, this kosher dietary rule excludes many of the shellfish such as lobster, shrimp or clams, but on the other hand, you can freely enjoy the taste of salmon, pike, and whitefish and other traditional fish delicacies, as they are kosher.

Secondly, the way of preparing our food is very important even if the ingredients themself are kosher. Actually, there are certain limitations about avoiding cooking meat together with dairy products (e.g. kosher eaters cannot eat cheese burgers or chicken parmesan at the same time).  Most important about this rule is that kosher eaters cannot eat meat that is served on a plate that was previously used for dairy product or the other way around. 

Third point that Zomick’s Kosher Bakery team would like to embrace as very crucial detail is the prohibition of combining kosher and non-kosher food. This is the reason why most of the kosher-consumers prefer eating in restaurants that serve only kosher food. Furthermore kosher-consumers insist on certification that the food was prepared according to these biblical laws. All items when baking Zomick’s bread are certified kosher. 
Furthermore, the number of kosher-eaters has gradually increased in the last forty years. In order to meet the needs of these consumers, Zomick’s bake shop team says that a great number of organizations certify the kosher  status of the food that they sell. In addition, our bakery has the best certified Zomick’s Challah Recipe. As our bakers claim, this is called kosher supervision. Nowadays, there are over one hundred different organizations that offer kosher supervision. Most of these organizations have trademarked symbols that you can easily found them on the food items that are certified kosher. The very well-known kosher symbol is the O-U (trademark of the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America). In general, the Americans continue to value kosher because of its additional supervision and perceived quality, and this is what encourages the kosher food.
