Found a product and you’re not sure if it’s Kosher?

Well, nowadays, verifying if a particular food item is Kosher has been made easy with the invention of Kosher Certifications. Kosher Certification agencies send expert rabbis to inspect plants to make sure all ingredients, machinery, and processes meet Kosher standards. So in most instances, one can tell whether a product is kosher by identifying a trustworthy Kosher symbol on the packaging.

Here is a list of websites of some of the most popular Kosher certifications (sites include lists of certified products):
