Kosher food refers to food products that comply with the Jewish dietary regulations of kashrut.

It includes challah, matzo, fish patties, potato pancakes, baked casserole, kosher pickles, falafel, hummus, chickpea dip, beet soup, sweet stew, dumplings, filled crepes, fruit and nut mixture, and filled pastries. They are prepared using carefully sourced ingredients under strict guidelines for slaughter, cleanliness, purity, and quality. Kosher food finds extensive applications across various sectors, such as households, hospitality, healthcare, retail, food services, transportation, education, public spaces, industrial areas, and special events. It aids in enhancing food safety, improving hygiene, supporting the ethical treatment of animals, aligning with specific dietary needs, increasing quality control, and ensuring consistency with religious beliefs. In addition, kosher food provides several advantages, such as suitability for lactose intolerant individuals, reduction in cross-contamination, adherence to health-conscious trends, appeal to vegan and vegetarian diets, and better shelf life.
