CHODOSH BULLETIN-9 AUG 18

August 8, 2018 from Yoseph Herman, The Guide to Chodosh, Hot Line 718-305-5133. Email: yherman@earlthlink.net

Yoseph Herman/ Guide to Chodosh: We expect the Chodosh grain will start to appear in products as follows. These are initial chumra estimates based on the start of the harvest season.

  1. Freshly baked items using spring wheat, including breads, challahs, bagels, rolls, pizza and some cakes and cookies may be Chodosh in the Midwest after the PURCHASE DATE of July 30. Elsewhere in the US, this date would be Aug 13.
  2. Packaged foods from spring wheat may be Chodosh after the PACKING date of July 30, or the PURCHASE date of Aug 13.
  3. Noodles and pasta may be Chodosh after the PACKING date of Aug 13 and the PURCHASE date of Aug 27.
  4. Barley, such as pearled barley, may be Chodosh after the PACKING date of Jul 31 and PURCHASE date of Aug 21.
  5. Oats: Oats in all products, including cereals, may be Chodosh starting with a PACKING date of Jul 26, PURCHASE date of Aug 10. However, note that in past years some manufacturers of oats cereals started producing Chodosh at later dates than our initial chumra estimate. We do not yet have any updates on this.
  6. Barley malt (also listed in the ingredients as “malt”) may be Chodosh as of the packing date of Nov 15 for beer and Dec 15 for other packaged foods. Package codes should be checked after the purchase date of Dec 15 for beer made from barley malt and Mar 15 for malt in other products.
