What is the difference between kosher vegetarian and regular vegetarian?
People who keep kosher won't eat certain vegetables because it's too difficult to clean them of bugs. Also, not all supplements are kosher. If the vegetarian in question eats dairy and/or fish, the dairy products may require kashrut certification and the rules of kashrut limit what fish are allowed. Additionally, any processed foods, including vegetarian/vegan products, require kashrut certification.

Is zicam kosher?
To simplify what is actually a rather complex issue of kashrut, as Zicam is a line of cold medication products, they do not require kashrut certification. If a medication is not hechshered and you wish confirm it is allowed, it is best to consult your rabbi for his opinion. Please see the related article for a detailed discussion of this topic.
