The Health Benefits of Kosher food

The word “kosher” is derived from the Hebrew root “kasher,” which means to be pure, proper, or suitable for consumption and even sacred for the religious Jews and those who follow the Biblical Dietary laws instituted by G-d, contained in the first 5 books of the Torah.

The reason kosher is perceived as healthier is because there is a third party inside the manufacturing plants that has a different incentive than the food company.

Kosher foods are highly beneficial for the consumer, because of the strict rules under which they are produced, and because of the close inspection and monitoring that certification requires. Vegetables and fruits are carefully monitored ensuring they do not contain any bugs, thereby ensuring the safety and healthiness of the product.
With dairy, the dietary law forbids the mixing of meat and dairy foods, requiring they be processed separately. The equipment used for dairy is never used for meat production unless it is kosherised.
Vegetarians are assured that those kosher products that are labelled as “Parve” are processed on  equipment free of any dairy foods or meat. Meatless foods cannot contain any form of meat, which is helpful for those on a vegetarian or vegan diet. Three in five kosher food buyers purchase for food quality.

Kosher foods and drinks has increased in popularity since the 1990’s, with the enjoyment of the food going beyond the enjoyment of the traditional Jewish staples. This increased popularity purchasing kosher is driven by the perception that the food is healthier, safer, and produced without certain ingredients.

Increasing adoption of kosher foods by vegetarian consumers, health conscious consumers, and patients with lactose intolerance and celiac disorders, is further expected to drive growth of the market. Growing number of kosher food manufacturers are focusing on gluten-free certification owing to high demand from kosher consumers suffering from lactose and gluten intolerance.
