No. The Rabbinical certification of food to make it kosher, involves the ascertaining
that the food has no ingredients or processes forbidden by Jewish law.


To address a few widespread misconceptions on this subject:

-- Nothing that anybody can do or say, including a rabbi, can make non-kosher food kosher.

-- An edible item or preparation is inherently, in and of itself, either kosher or not. It's
often obvious, but just as often, it's not obvious, because the laws that distinguish
one status from the other are complex. In those cases, an individual educated and
trained in the law, and familiar with it, can express an opinion. Note that his opinion
is not what makes it kosher, and it's quite common that some people accept his
opinion while others don't.

-- When the food comes from the supermarket shelf, and not straight off the farm
in full view of the consumer, there is the question of how it was prepared, and
what it came in contact with during processing, cooking, and packaging ... simply
because there were many steps in there that the consumer didn't see. That's
the reason for the organizations that monitor the process, from the farm to the
packaged product, and allow their mark or icon to be printed on the package,
certifying that the product is kosher to the level of the standards of that particular
orgaization. Again, for each organization, there are kosher consumers who accept
the standards of that particular one, and others who don't.
