Quinoa for Passover

Posted on April 12, 2016 by The VRG Blog Editor


According to Kashrus Magazine, “The position of the OU [Orthodox Union Kosher Certification] is that quinoa is kosher for Passover and is not related to the five types of chometz grains, millet, or rice. However, since there is a possibility that quinoa grows in proximity to chometz grains and may be processed in facilities that compromise its kosher for Passover status, quinoa should be accepted only with a reliable kosher for Passover supervision. Pereg, Setton Farms, Earthly Choice, Natural Earth, La Bonne, and Goldbaum quinoa will have an OU-P. Pereg will also have quinoa flour.”
