Why salmon is kosher

On the pages of newspapers, magazines, and articles on the Internet about proper and healthy nutrition, we increasingly come across the words "kosher," "kosher food," and "kosher." What they mean, what kind of term, not everyone knows.

I must say that this is not just a fashionable word that has come into use. This is a characteristic of the special food allowed to be consumed by the followers of Judaism.

For the Jews, there is a unique "code," or set of rules, called "kashrut," which establishes the suitability or permissibility of something for those who observe it. These rules apply to almost all spheres of human life and are kept in everyday life, religion, and jurisprudence. But the Jews have a particular attitude towards food, and most of the rules and regulations apply specifically to it. Permitted food by kashrut is called kosher.

By the requirements of kashrut, can eat the meat of certain types of birds and animals; in particular, they should not be predatory. Separate rules exist for fish. It is allowed to use only those river and sea inhabitants with fins and scales. Products derived from animals, such as milk, eggs, and caviar, must also be made from kosher species. Only under these conditions does food becomes permitted, "clean."

Kamchatka salmon fish and grainy red caviar of the company "Vostochny Bereg" (Bering Seafood) are produced from Pacific salmon, which has scales and fins, which means that it fully complies with the requirements of kashrut.

However, it is not enough to have signs of kosherness by nature. Compliance with kashrut requirements is also determined by the absence of aromatic additives and preservatives, chemical impurities, and artificial substances in the products. Those kosher is equal to natural. The Far Eastern Fish Processing Complex has all the achievements of science and technology that allow the catching and processing of fish in the shortest possible time, without long-term storage of raw materials. Fish fillet immediately after cutting is subjected to deep shock freezing while maintaining the freshness of the product and excellent taste, not to mention all the valuable substances of sea fish. The production of red caviar also does not take much time. Four hours after caught the salmon, the granular caviar is already salted and sorted into jars for further sale. The company carefully controls the quality of raw materials and finished products and does not allow "dirty" processing. In fish and salmon caviar production, nothing artificial or harmful; no food additives, preservatives, and flavors are used. Therefore, Jews and adherents of a healthy diet worldwide are happy to purchase products from the East Coast (Bering Seafood) as they meet all the signs of kosher.

This is not to say that kosher food is only for those who keep kashrut. Since all-natural food is called kosher, it can be consumed by anyone who carefully monitors their health and controls the correctness and quality of nutrition. Everyone, regardless of their religion, can switch to eating kosher food. Some manufacturers even make the Kosher label on their products.

There is no corresponding marking on the company's product "Vostochny Bereg" (Bering Seafood). But there is no doubt about its naturalness and quality. For 20 years, the company has pleased its consumers with tasty and healthy natural fish products and red caviar. The brand is known far beyond the region where the processing plant is located and is widely distributed in foreign countries not only among Jews but also among other people who want to consume a tasty and healthy, high-quality product.
