Kosher

Vita Forte’s ingredients, manufacturing processes and equipment are within the requirements of Kosher. According to our certifier Star K, The Jewish religion incorporates within its tenets a regimen of dietary laws. These laws determine which foods are acceptable and conform to the Jewish Code. The word kosher is an adaptation of the Hebrew word meaning “fit” or “proper.” It refers to foodstuffs that meet the dietary requirements of Jewish Law.

Kosher certification, which is the guarantee that the food meets kosher requirements, revolves around these two criteria.
