Denotes a diet that follows the dietary laws required in observant Jews; it interdicts consumption of some food altogether and requires that dairy and meat items be consumed at different times and on different dishes. Kosher butchers prepare meats and poultry according to hygiene precepts more stringent than those observed by nonkosher butchers.

kosher

A rabbinic term derived from the Hebrew word for proper or fit and most commonly applied to the food authorized for orthodox Jews. Kosher foods include the meat of cattle, sheep, goats, chickens and fish with scales and fins. Animals must be killed in accordance with prescribed rules and carcasses inspected for disease. Meat must be immediately broiled or salted. Such observances are of significant hygienic value.
