Are all pareve items kosher?
No. For instance, fruit from a tree that is less than three years old is neither meat nor dairy, but it isn't kosher. And many fish are not kosher. Eggs with blood spots are not kosher. Wine that hasn't been cooked, and is handled by a gentile or someone who doesn't keep Shabbat becomes non-kosher , but it doesn't become meat or dairy.

Pareve Foods that are neither meat nor dairy are called pareve (also "parevine") in Judaism. This means that they contain absolutely no meat or dairy derivatives,… and have not been cooked or mixed with any meat or dairy foods. The reason behind needing to know if foods are pareve or not is that Jewish law prohibits mixing meat and milk. Pareve foods can be eaten together with either meat or dairy foods. Common pareve foods are eggs, fish, fruit, vegetables, grains and juices in their natural, unprocessed state. Processed pareve foods typically include pasta, soft drinks, coffee and tea, and many types of candy and snacks. Processed products, however, must have reliable kashruth supervision. Dark chocolate might be pareve; milk chocolate definitely is not. Although commercially produced pareve breads are more widely available than before, care must be taken to be absolutely sure they are certified "pareve" by reliable supervision (trust us, you don't want to make a salami sandwich on bread containing whey). Fruits and veggies must be checked to ensure against the presence of small insects and larvae (yum!). Eggs must also be checked for blood spots (fertilization).
Kosher means the food is allowed to be consumed by a Jewsihperson, Pareve simply means it's neither milk nor meat the most common examples are fish, eggs, and produce.
Kosher literally means 'fit'. When food is kosher it means that the food was prepared following the laws of kashrut (Jewish dietary law). (meat- animals that chew their cud an…d have split hooves, fish- fins and scales, all meat must be killed a certain humane way. Milk can only come from a kosher animal, milk and meat cannot be mixed, etc) The word parve is a term used to describe a certain type of kosher food. Something that is parve is dairy and meat free and includes all fruits and vegetables, eggs, and fish. This term is helpful in identifying whether a food can be mixed with meat or milk. There are four categories of food in kashrut: fleishig - containing meatmilchig - containing dairyparve - non- dairy, non- meattreif - not kosher Note: Although fish is considered pareve, it is tradition that fish and meat are not served on the same plate. Also, some groups do not combine fish and dairy.
For an item to be labeled Parve, It must have no trace of either meat or milk products in it. This means that an item may cannot be labeled as Parve and dairy at the same time….
A list of non kosher items is very long. The list would include most winged animals, most hoofed animals, and all creeping things. Non kosher involves meat that is cooked …with dairy. Answer: It's easier to list what is kosher than what is not. In order to be kosher, food has to be prepared according to the kosher-laws (see Deuteronomy ch.14). These are given in detail in the Talmud volume of Chullin. * Meat must be from those land animals which have split hooves and chew their cud (such as beef and mutton) * Fish have to have scales and fins. Shellfish are not kosher. * Birds cannot be among those listed as forbidden in the Torah (Deuteronomy ch.14) and cannot be hunters/scavengers. In actual practice, today we eat only poultry-species concerning which we have a tradition that they're permitted, such as chicken and turkey. * Animals must be slaughtered in the manner specified by Jewish law and must be free of all disease. In actual practice, those who keep kosher purchase meat which is certified as having been prepared in the kosher manner. * As much blood as possible must be removed from meat before cooking, since consumption of blood is forbidden (Leviticus ch.17). This is done by the kosher butcher, through salting, soaking and rinsing. * Dairy and meat cannot be combined in the same meal and there's a waiting period between eating one and then the other. After dairy: 1/2 hour. After meat: 6 hours for most Jewish communities. * Fruits and vegetables should be checked to be sure they're free of bugs. Some Jews avoid cauliflower, asparagus, and the like, because of the difficulty in checking them. Additionally, food must be prepared and handled following kashrut-laws and with kosher ingredients only. Any food that does not meet these requirements cannot be eaten by those who are religiously observant. Foods which are purchased should be labeled as having had kosher supervision during their processing.
Yes, but they should say "Kosher for Passover" on the labels.
Bird's Custard Powder is kosher and parev. Instant, Instant Low Fat, and Ready To Serve are all kosher but dairy (not chalav yisrael).
All whiskeys are kosher (for year round use, not for Passover) In previous versions of this answer, someone stated that Whiskey must be "mevushal". Mevushal (a cooking proce…ss) is a special process for wine only, not other liquors. Wine which has been cooked may be handled by non-Jews, and wine which has not been made "mevushal" must not be handled by non-Jews once opened. In terms of what is required for whiskey to be kosher, Whiskey, like other forms of alcohol, follow a simple rule: the process must not include contact with treif (non-knosher food) and may be opened, drunk and served by Jews and non-Jews alike.
Yes, by default, all salt is kosher. However, items can be added to salt to render it not kosher, most commonly flavourings.
No. Pareve means that the food item is neither meat nor dairy, such as fish, eggs, fruit, nuts and veggies. "kosher" can apply to any permitted food, whether dairy, meat or ne…ither.
No, but pareve is a part of kashrut. Within the laws of kashrut, foods fall into one of three categories: dairy, meat, pareve. Pareve refers to neutral foods that do not c…ontain any meat or dairy, this includes: vegetables, fruits, all edible plants, eggs, and fish.
If a Parve item is stored in a milchig (dairy) container it becomes a dairy product.
The "OU" on food packaging (the letter U inside a circle) is the kosher symbol of the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of Amertica (Orthodox Union), one of the first… nationwide kosher certification efforts in the USA. It is still one of the most popular and widely accepted kosher symbols in the United States. Many Orthodox Jews who only eat kosher food will only buy products with this symbol. The "OU" by itself indicates that the product in the package is kosher. Additional marks to the side of the 'OU' will indicate other details as required, including 'Dairy', 'Meat', 'Fish', 'Pareve' and 'Passover'.
All those that are listed as pareve, obviously! Which list are you talking about anyway?
