Passover Kashrut Alerts


The following Passover update is from the information is from Star-K on March 19, 2012.

SOY MILK, RICE MILK and ALMOND MILK:
Lieber's Almond Milk is under the certification of Rabbi Weismandel. This is preferable to the soy and rice milk the Star-K list in their Passover Guide which are kitniyos. It is also preferable to the Almond milk we list which is only for cholim since it may be made on chometz equipment.
If you cannot get the almond milk or are alergic to nuts and dairy the alternative beverages are soy milk and rice milk. Soy Milk and Rice Milk are kitniyos and possibly contain chometz. Under normal circumstances one may not consume them on Pesach. The following soy/rice milk products are chometz free and may be consumed by someone who is allowed to eat kitniyos (e.g. one who is ill). It is recommended that those who require these products ideally purchase them before Pesach.

  • Soymilk, Original - Giant, Shop Rite, Winn-Dixie, Price Chopper, Meijer, Stop & Shop, 365 Everyday Value. NPSR
  • Rice Milk, Original – Shop Rite, Meijer, Price Chopper. Rice Dream – Unsweetened Rice Milk (not standard Rice Milk).

Almond Milk, although not produced from Kitniyos, has the same guidelines as rice and soy beverages due to possible chometz content. It therefore may not be consumed on Pesach unless it has been approved or certified for Pesach. Note the following chometz free products:
  • Almond Milk (Original only) – ShopRite, 365 Everyday Value, Kroger, Meijer, Ralphs, Trader Joe's, Winn-Dixie, Price Chopper.
