Passover Kashrut Alerts

The following Passover information is from the CRC posted on March 18, 2015.

There are basically two types of parchment paper, Quilon and Silicone. All Quilon type paper requires a reliable hashgacha during the year while the silicone type does not. Both require special Pesach certification.
This is not to be confused with wax paper or freezer paper which do not require any certification during the year or for Pesach.
All parchment paper under the certification of the Star K is permissible for Pesach even without Passover certification.
The following brands certified by the OU do not require Passover certification:

  • Essential Everyday
  • Great Value
  • Kirkland
  • Meijer
  • Member's Mark
  • Reynolds
  • Roundy's
