DID YOU KNOW... Is Kosher Kosher?

March 22, 2013

Did you know that many of our HEPP'S salts are certified kosher?  It is true and the good news doesn't stop there all of our salts are 100% anticaking agent and chemical free.  With the Jewish passover holiday around the corner it dawned on me that many of our HEPP'S salt fans may not be aware that we can be included in kosher meals.  It got me thinking and inspired me to take a trip to my local market to see the other "Kosher salts" on the market.  What I found was just about every advertised Kosher salt on the shelf has two ingredients instead of  one salt and yellow prussiate of soda otherwise known as anticaking agents.  It got me thinking since the purpose of "kosher" is to be pure/ suitable for fitness and consumption according to the dietary or ceremonial laws is this yellow prussiate of soda really considered kosher since it is a chemical additive??  Or is putting the name Kosher on the box good enough for the big box salt companies?  Which leads me to my next point there is another meaning of kosher salt which is just having larger flakes than regular table salt so is your kosher salt really kosher??  You might want to take a look in you pantry at home and see how many ingredients are in your box of kosher salt, It should just simply say one ingredient, salt.  It can be very confusing so I decided to make it easier and less confusing for everyone below is a list of all HEPP'S sea salts that are kosher certified, and chemical free, with HEPP'S we make it easy you get 100% sea salt.
