How is a pickle kosher?

Kosher foods are those that do not violate Jewish dietary law. The law is complicated, and not all authorities agree on exactly what is kosher and what isn't. A kosher food will generally have on it somewhere a trademarked symbol belonging to a rabbinical supervising organization. This means the product has been investigated by someone belonging to that organization who is very familiar with Jewish dietary law, and has found that not only the ingredients but the process used does not violate any of the principles of that law as interpreted by that particular organization. Some organizations are stricter than others, but most of them make their guidelines for specific foods available so people know exactly what a kosher certification from that organization really means.

The question might arise: what might there be in a dill pickle that could possibly violate the dietary law to make some dills "Kosher Dills" and others just "Dill pickles"? The answer is that so-called "Kosher Dills" are not necessarily actually kosher in the sense of being made under rabbinical supervision, but that they're the traditional style (with lots of garlic and dill) that would typically be served in a New York kosher deli. The label usually actually reads "Kosher style Dill" with the word style written very small.

There is no dispute as to what is or isn't kosher. The only potential issue is that some people follow more strict standards. For example, cow milk in North America is considered kosher, however, some people will only drink milk that is 'chalav yisrael'. Chalav yisrael is a certification given to milk where the whole process of production is supervised by a 'mashgiach' (an orthodox observant Jew who is an expert on the laws of kashrut). A mashgiach can be a rabbi but that is not required. One of the only ingredients that could render a pickle not kosher is the type of vinegar used if a vinegar brine is used.

Are kosher pickles good for you?

Technically, there's nothing about a pickle that makes it kosher or not kosher. The name refers to a 'style' or flavor of pickling ... just so much dill and just so much salt. They won't prevent or cure anything. They sure taste good. And if you have no problem with that level of salt, then they won't hurt you. Just like any other dill pickle.


Why are pickles deemed kosher?

The term "kosher pickles" refers to the style of pickling that occurs (i.e. how the cucumber is turned into a pickle). It does not indicate that the pickling process is itself kosher. This is similar to how "kosher salt" refers to the size of the granules and not that the salt is itself kosher. Kosher pickles certainly can be made kosherly provided that kosher vinegar and only other kosher agents are used alongside cucumbers obtained withour mixed in insect parts. Neither cucumbers nor vinegar are inherently unkosher items, so using them together is not a problem.


Are kosher pickles kosher?

Everything that grows from the ground is kosher. Concerning the pickles only, there's nothing in a pickle that makes it non-kosher, as long as it doesn't come in contact with other ingredients, or machinery, used in non-kosher products. But just like anything else on the supermarket shelf, one has to check to make sure. Kosher pickles should be kosher. To confirm this, you would need to check the labeling for a recognized hechsher (kosher certification symbol). The US, and most other countries with food labeling laws, doesn't allow any reference to being kosher unless the product is certified kosher. Pickles that are labeled "kosher style", are most likely not kosher. Items that could render pickles not kosher are primarily non-kosher spices and non- kosher vinegar.
