Kosher Smosher – is it that Important?


Often we see products with a symbol on it stating that it is ‘Kosher’.  I am sure many of you scratch your head and say “Huh? Is it that important?”

Well, yes and no.  If you are of  a race or religion that will eat only certain foods then it is very important.  If you are one who wants to eat in a healthy way or take healthy supplements then the Kosher symbol gives you confidence in that product.

I’ll quote from a release from Mannatech:

“Mannatech is committed to ensuring that we deliver the safest and highest quality products possible for our Associates and Members. We also recognize the importance and value of kosher certification on our products. We are happy to announce that our products have been recertified with a reputable kosher certification agency, EarthKosher. They specialize in natural, organic and specialty products and provide supervision and follow-up inspections to ensure a comprehensive process. EarthKosher offers thorough services with their 7-step certification process.

“The kosher symbol has become synonymous with accountability, quality and food safety. Being certified kosher means that we comply with a strict policy of kosher food laws, including cleanliness, purity and quality.”

Powerful statements. While we pay to have them check our products this is not buying them off.  It is to cover their costs in doing the 7 steps as mentioned above.  Quality and accountability – those are 2 cornerstones of Mannatech and its products.
