Amy’s Kitchen Kosher Certification

amys-vegetable-lasagna.jpg I’ve often seen Amy’s Kitchen vegetarian frozen meals at supermarkets but haven’t purchased them in the past because they didn’t display a hekhsher. Ariella sent email on Sunday to ask if they’d consider getting rabbinic supervision and they replied back with some good news:

Amy’s Kitchen’s Kosher certification is from Rabbi Dov Hazdan of Ner Tamid K in Staten Island, NY. Amy’s became certified in November of 2003. With one exception, Amy’s products are certified as Kosher Dairy or Kosher Pareve as noted below. The Low Sodium Marinara is the only Amy’s Kitchen product that is not certified Kosher due to the presence of non-kosher red wine vinegar.

I guess they haven’t updated their packaging yet, but they did put a note in their FAQ. I guess it’s been asked frequently enough that it deserves a spot in the FAQ!

The consumer relations rep went so far as to send us a list of their kosher products, which I’ll post here.

These products are Kosher Pareve. They contain no dairy or meat ingredients:

    1. I’m so excited, I loved Amy’s before i became kosher (in 2000). Eating a week of frozen dinners in celebration – Now time to put pressure on gardenburger to do the same. Be sure to e-mail Amy’s and thank them for going Kosher! hurray. (and send a letter to gardenburger lambasting them for not going kosher)
