YOU GOTTA LOVE THE LONDON BEIT DIN

This is a letter that was sent both by the London Beit Din and the United Synagogue of England (Orthodox). Straight and to the point. No chumras. Just halacha as it was meant to be. Too bad we will never see something like this here in the States……..

ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE LONDON BETH DIN KASHRUT DIVISION:

MARS PRODUCTS

Articles have recently appeared in the national press concerning the use of whey derived from animal rennet in Masterfoods confectionery.

We have been aware for many years that whey can be a by product of cheese-making and that, even today, animal rennet can be used in cheese manufacture.

Since whey derived from this source contains only trace amounts of rennet, it is permitted according to halacha.

There is therefore no problem with any of the Masterfoods products that are currently on the London Beth Din approved list.

To access the Kosher Product List from the Really Jewish Food Guide, go to www.kosher.org.uk or www.theUS.org.uk
