Learn how to prepare kosher canned and frozen foods

Kosher Canned and Frozen Foods

Most canned and frozen foods are usually permissible since manufacturers add only water and spices during the packaging process. Sometimes, however, fruits or vegetables are prepared with milk products or with non-kosher ingredients such as non-kosher meat broth. Orthodox Judaism thus holds that canned and frozen goods should generally not be consumed unless there is a hechsher on the product. Conservative rabbis are often more lenient, and say that a careful reading of the ingredients is sufficient.
