Kosher Grains and Cereals

Unprocessed grains and cereals are kosher. Processed items (e.g. dry cereals, baked goods) frequently contain small quantities of non-kosher ingredients; therefore Orthodox rabbis advise against consuming such products without a hechsher (mark of rabbinical certification of kashrut) on the product. There are certain items that do not need such certification, such as plain tea, salt, 100% cocoa, carbonated water and coffee. Some Conservative rabbis say that a careful reading of the ingredients is sufficient.
