Kosher Foods at Whole Foods

I don’t keep kosher, but I buy a lot of kosher foods. I also know that many non-Jewish people buy kosher foods for health reasons. The folks at Whole Foods were kind enough to send me an update on their kosher offerings. Because not all kosher foods necessarily meet the standards set by Whole Foods regarding ingredients, it was nice to get an update and have reassurance that the kosher foods not only meet Jewish dietary laws but also meet the standards set by Whole Foods to ensure quality as well as sustainability concerns.

Here are some of the kosher products you’ll find at Whole Foods, for your every day and holiday needs.

  • Potato pancake, whole wheat matzo meal, latkes, natural cake, stuffing and soup mixes from Streit’s® a family-owned purveyor of kosher food since 1925
  • Organic soups and dishes from Fig Food™
  • Gefen Chestnuts, roasted and peeled
  • Yehuda Lightly Salted and Toasted Onion Gluten Free Matzo Crackers
  • An assortment of Simply Organic® gluten-free and vegetarian baking mixes
  • Elyon Kosher Marshmallows
  • Responsibly-sourced, Whole Trade™ Hanukkah gelt from Divine Chocolate™
  • Organic Concord Grape Juice and Gefilte Fish from Kedem, a family business for eight generations
  • Exclusive So Delicious® Chocolate Mint Milk made from creamy coconut milk
  • Hanukkah candles

Select Whole Foods Market stores will also offer antibiotic-free kosher poultry options from Kosher Valley including fresh and frozen whole young turkeys and chickens, ground turkey and value pack options, which are all certified by the Orthodox Union and the K’hal Adath Jeshurun.

If you have questions or want Whole Foods to carry a particular kosher item, talk to the customer service staff at your local store. Remember that Whole Foods Market accepts manufacturer coupons and many manufacturers of kosher-certified products do offer coupons periodically. It is possible to be Kosher on a Budget.
