All of Seattle Sorbets eleven (11) flavors are certified Parve/Kosher by the Va’ad HaRabanim of Greater Seattle, we hold a Kashrut Certificate. Parve (also spelled as “Pareve” or “Parevine”) is a guarantee that a food product does not contain any meat or dairy products, and that it has not come in contact with either. This is a very useful symbol for vegetarians and vegans.
The word ‘Kosher’ is meant for observant Jews and actually means ‘fit’ or ‘spiritually fit’, as described in the books of Deuteronomy and Leviticus. As a result of kosher supervision, kosher products are scrupulously clean, and the word Kosher has become synonymous with premium quality. Kosher requirements are far more stringent than U.S. Department of Agriculture requirements.
There are three segments to the kosher inspection: (1) ingredients, (2) processing, and (3) equipment.
