Kosher foods are those types of food that conform to the regulations of "kashrut"—Jewish dietary law, and hence have to undergo various special treatments. Food that can be consumed according to "halakha"—Jewish law—is termed kosher in English, from the Ashkenazi pronunciation of the Hebrew term "kashér", which means "fit". On the other hand, food that is not in accordance with Jewish law is known as "treif", which means "torn". Numerous foods, dishes, and beverages still possess an extreme significance in various religions. The demand for kosher-certified products has increased vigorously and presently is one of the newest food trends. Additionally, in order to meet the growing demand for kosher foods, various supermarkets and food companies all over the world provide a wide variety of kosher-based products such as juices, pasta, cereals, bread, and others.
