KOSHER UNDER RABBINICAL SUPERVISION
All products made by Kleinblatt bakery are kosher and comply with the Jewish dietary laws, the Kashrut.
It is important to keep a strict separation between meat and dairy products. After eating meat, you have to wait 6 hours before using dairy products. Kleinblatt bakery also offers a host of parve bread products, meaning products without butter, cream or milk.
There is a strict separation between preparation of foodstuff with dairy products and those without. For example, Kleinblatt bakery has two dishwashers: one for parve products and one for dairy products. Pots, pans, knives and other utensils are also kept separate at all times.
This strict supervision also makes our parve products ideal for people with a dairy allergy.
Another dietary law prohibits the consumption of animal blood. That is why all eggs at Kleinblatt bakery are checked for blood spots by a Rabbi-appointed supervisor.
Kleinblatt bakery follows the most stringent dietary laws. Certain ingredients, such as bread improvers and binders, come from specialist suppliers – from abroad if necessary. Kleinblatt bakery is in turn a supplier to various kosher food businesses both at home and in London and Paris.
A number of dietary laws are linked to particular celebrations. For instance, unleavened bread and cakes – baked without yeast, salt or fats – are eaten in the period around Passover.
The Rabbi-appointed supervisor monitors compliance with the dietary laws and also accepts sacrifices. Under biblical tradition, a piece of every batch of dough must be given as a sacrifice to God, a custom that is still honoured today. The same goes for the tradition of “Tzedaka”, which says that a proportion of all revenue must be given to the poor. Every Friday, Kleinblatt bakery donates challes and pastries to a Jewish charity for the poor.
