Now is the time to head over to the Jewish section in the grocery store! Often you can find marshmallows with no gelatin!- Stock up for the summer!
Tonight i was looking for them. I passed by the Easter Candy section.
They were advertising Kosher Easter Candy....... ???

Although a food maybe kosher, geltain made from pigs is still considered kosher. Isn't that weird?

|My sister once bought a kosher chicken and it had something stamped in Hebrew on the package. She made a joke saying it probably says: T"hank you, you have helped one more zionist move to Israel." We never bought anything kosher after that because really, who knows where the money goes.|

I never heard of "Kosher Easter Candy"...very weird
But to be honest, I don't trust the gelatin no matter what kind it is...kosher or non-kosher...just to be on the safe side, you know?

I just got this book called "Gelatin" by Dr. Ahmad Sakr. It cleared up a lot of misconceptions I had about this subject. Here's a little excerpt from the book:
"Many Musilms feel that every Kosher food should be Halal. This is not true. Some Kosher food do contain alcohol, which is prohibited in Islam. Kosher gelatin may contain pork products and still it is Kosher for the Jews." :o

You know for many years, until many of our immagrant brothers and sisters started setting up Halaal meat stores (I hate using the Term "Halaal Meat store", when it should be Thabihah meat store) we use to shop at jewish super market exclusively. And say if you wanted to by like cheese and you had ground beef in your cart, you had to use seperate lines for the cheese and meat. I probably couldn't survive as a jew, I love cheese burgers. And when I have my cheese burger's I like to wash it down with

|Kosher salt is chunkier salt that traditionally was used by |
Jews on meat to extract all remaining blood.
In other words, there's nothing special about the salt itself, it's
what it was used for.
See a picture of it here: http://www.mos.org/sln/sem/ksalt.html
It's gotten really popular with gourmet chefs as have other more exotic
varities of salt. Chefs like it because it is flakier and dissolves
more quickly than regular table salt, and it has no additives. I think
some people like the taste or level of saltiness better.
And incidentally you can make your own marshmallows with beef or other
gelatin, or with vegetarian products like those made from agar-agar or
carageenan (thickener whose original source is those types of seaweed)
or kuzu, or guar gum, cellulose, xanthan, and other plant-sources. One
such product sells under the brand name Kojel, and there is a kosher
vegetarian gelatin product called Emes (from carageenan).
You can run a search on any search engine for vegetarian marshmallow
recipes, or just use an acceptable gelatin in a regular recipe.
similarly you can find other fruit flavored gummy candies made with
pectin (thickener from fruit).

|For those of you who think that everything marked Kosher |
means that it's part of some grand international conspiracy and that the
company must be owned by Jews, sadly, you're wrong.
Rabbis take the time to ensure that a product like, say, vegetarian
beans are not processed on the same equipment as pork and beans. This may
not matter to you, but it matters to some people.
Those who keep kosher have specific rules they follow. The kosher
inspections allow them to determine the truth behind the source of the
ingrediants and the processing equipment. It's more than how a chicken is
slaughtered - this is only one aspect.
Oreos are kosher. They don't have lard in them.
Land o Lakes butter is kosher, dairy.
Frozen orange juice concentrate is kosher.
Heck, even a carrot is kosher. But it doesn't need a mark on it because
Here is an interesting article about why kosher products have become so
popular, and what the implications are for Muslims:
