1. What kind of information can I find in the Kosher Master Database?
Kosher Master contains a wide range of useful data relating to sources of kosher approved and/or kosher acceptable ingredients and their kosher status, as well as technical information about the raw materials themselves:
a. Kosher ingredients – The database lists thousands of kosher ingredients and an ever growing quantity of sources for each product. Included are all the necessary details for each source: contact details, website, suppliers, other available products, etc.
b. Kosher info – Discover who certifies each product, what is its actual kosher status (year round, Passover, etc.), and all the information relevant to the various kosher certifying organizations.
c. Technical data – Find all the details you need about a specific raw material or kosher ingredient, including additive E-numbers, FEMA numbers, CAS numbers, trade names, alternate chemical or botanical names, ingredient categories, etc., to help you narrow down your search.

9. If it’s not in your database, does that mean it does not exist?
Our goal is for our database to be as complete as is humanly possible, and therefore we are continually adding new information. If you don't find the product, company or kosher certifying organization that you are interested in, please contact us and we will try to solve your problem.
10. If it's in your database, does that mean that our company's kosher certifying organization will accept it?
All of the rabbinical certifying organizations and their products listed in the database are legitimate. However their inclusion in the database is in no way a recommendation of their relative abilities or acceptability. The final authority for the acceptance of the kosher certification of a specific ingredient is the end user's own kosher certifying organization.
