What is Pareve?
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).

As you said yourself, pareve means no meat or dairy, a pareve hot dog would be made of soy, or any other vegeterian meat substitute.
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.
Bird's Custard Powder is kosher and parev. Instant, Instant Low Fat, and Ready To Serve are all kosher but dairy (not chalav yisrael).

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.
Yes, it is. OU
do you speak french
neither meat nor dairy
Yes. It is customary to have at least one dish containing meat, at one or more of the Festival meals, but that dish can be served in separate utensils. And someone who, for wh…atever reason, is not eating meat, may have pareve (non-meat or dairy) foods.
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 n…ot 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.
All those that are listed as pareve, obviously! Which list are you talking about anyway?
