Reader Question

We received an important question from a KosherEye reader and posed this question to Naftali Hanau, CEO and Founder of Grow and Behold Foods.

Q: Do you know if kosher meat sold in the U.S. comes from animals fed on animal based feed?
A: It's very hard to generalize about "kosher meat sold in the US" coming from feed that contains animals. Kosher meat sold in the US comes from many different producers, and some meat comes from other countries. Practices for feeding vary widely. If you are concerned about eating beef that may have had animal by-products in it's diet, look for claims on the label or from the producer that the beef is "vegetarian-fed". This is a commonly made claim, and most domestic produced kosher beef likely meets this standard. It's worth noting that vegetarian fed as a claim does not have any implications for animal welfare or nutritional profile of the meat. At Grow and Behold Foods, our cattle are fed a pastured-based diet consisting ogrowandbeholdlogof grass and grains, never animal by–products.

Kosher for Passover Quinoa

There has been much discussion regarding quinoa and whether it can be used during Passover. The following bulletin was sent by the CRC, Chicago Rabbinical Council:,

Rabbi Sholem Y. Fishbane
Kashruth Administrator

February 28, 2012

In 2007 HaRav Gedalia Dov Schwartz, Shlit”a, the Av Beis Din of the Chicago Rabbinical Council, issued a p’sak that quinoa is not considered kitniyos and therefore may be used on Pesach. Most of the quinoa comes from Peru and Bolivia and has been grown in areas where other (problematic for Pesach) grains were generally not grown. However, as the popularity of quinoa has risen, this is no longer the absolute case.  This was confirmed this year by a Star-K mashgiach who visited Bolivia and found that barley does indeed grow in those areas. It was also recently discovered that some farmers cover their quinoa with barley and/or oats to keep the birds from eating the quinoa while it dries. Finally, there is a concern that the sacks used to transfer the quinoa may have been previously used to hold barley or oats.

We have, therefore, determined that the only way to allow quinoa for use on Pesach is to track the quinoa from certain farms that are free from the above concerns. The Star-K spearheaded this endeavor and sent a mashgiach to find such a farm. While they were successful in their search, it proved to be challenging from a practical point of view, as the company visited generally sells their products in large quantities. The Star-K has now worked with other companies to pack the usable quinoa into smaller packages, and the following three options have been approved for Pesach quinoa consumption:

http://www.quinoa.net/; (310) 217-8125

It is important to note that even the quinoa from the above approved sources should be carefully checked before Pesach for any foreign matter before use. This can be done by spreading the quinoa out on a plate and carefully checking there are no other grains or foreign matter mixed in.

The cRc would like to thank Rabbi Zvi Goldberg of the Star-K and Rabbi Reuven Nathanson of the OU for their help on researching this issue.
