by Rabbi Naftali Silberberg

The word "mehadrin" means "those who beautify." This is a term which is used to describe people who insist on doing every Mitzvah in the best and most beautiful way possible.

There are many instances where one can be lenient or stringent in the laws of Kosher. Someone who eats Mehadrin doesn't rely on leniencies or loopholes, and eats only the highest standard of Kosher.

For more information, see Is there any difference between the different kosher symbols?
