Kosher diet
Kosher diet


"Kosher" is the term used to describe food prepared in accordance with the dietary guidelines of Jewish law. Kosher foods are not 'blessed' by rabbis or other religious officials. Food that is not kosher according to Jewish law is referred to as "treyf."

There is some disagreement over why Jewish people eat kosher foods. The spiritual text of Judaism, the Torah, describes the kosher diet, and followers of this text often follow this set of dietary guidelines. Others, however, may follow a kosher diet simply because of its proposed health benefits.

Pregnancy And Lactation: There is insufficient reliable evidence about the safety of the kosher diet in pregnancy and lactation. However, there is no reason to expect safety issues.
