Long overdue and much welcomed, the KosChertified? app is a tool to make you a better-informed consumer at the grocery store while providing a brief, yet comprehensive look at the kosher certification industry. It features a database of products that DO NOT display an obvious kosher certification seal on its label. So for those consumers not requiring to follow strict religious dietary laws, this will allow them to exercise their dietary free will in choosing non-certified products where available. For those kosher-keeping shoppers, this can be used as a “check” on products to avoid. And anyone familiar with these kosher certification stamps knows that it can be quite a chore to locate and identify, as they are usually obscure and small. After acquainting yourself with this app, you certainly will become more “kosher-aware”!
