Kosher Food are those that conform to the regulations of kashrut (Jewish Dietary Law). This determines which foods conform to the Jewish Code. The word kosher means “fit” or “proper.”
Kosher certification (the guarantee that the food meets kosher requirements) revolves around these two criteria: source of ingredients and the status of the production equipment. A common misconception is that kosher reflects the conferring of a blessing on food by Rabbi. There is no truth to this. The Jewish ritual requires the recitation of a blessing prior to the consumption of food, however there is no blessing which can make the food itself kosher or unkosher.
