Rabbi Herman CHODOSH BULLETIN- 13 Sept 16

UPDATE OF HOME BAKING FLOUR

WARNING ON HOME BAKING FLOUR HAS BEEN CANCELLED
Several weeks ago we were warned by sources in the flour milling industry that a recent major recall of Gold Medal home baking flour may result in significant shifts in the use of winter wheat vs. spring wheat in such flours. As a result of this, we issued a warning to the Yoshon-observant public for assurance of Yoshon to use all home baking flour if it either has an hashgocho for Yoshon, or it can be determined from the dating code that the flour was packed before Jul 29 ’16. In fact, it has now been determined that the situation has not changed from previous years. Therefore, those flours which have been from winter wheat in the past, should continue to be so this year as well. This includes Gold Medal Flour from factory KC and the Heckers and Ceresota brands.

Rabbi Herman CHODOSH BULLETIN- 11 Sept 16

UPDATE OF HOME BAKING FLOUR
Heckers and Ceresota flour will be from winter wheat all season as in the past. I am still waiting for clarification for Gold Medal flour from factory KC.

From R Herman: "The Guide to Chodosh is published in two editions. The Preliminary Guide is due to be released soon, the full Guide for the season after sukkos. The draft of the Preliminary Guide is ready. It is still incomplete and has some errors, mostly typographical. I hope to send all of you this preliminary draft later today. You should be able to use it to get the Chodosh code for most packaged products. You will note that most information that depends on mashgichim is missing. Their information has not yet been forwarded to us. If you find any errors or confusing entries, please drop me a note to yherman@earthlink.net. I will not be able to answer each email, but will appreciate your feedback."
