Gelatin Desserts: Desertion of Kashrus?

Among the most fascinating topics in contemporary kashrus is the status of gelatin. Let Rabbi Eli Gersten, the Rabbinic Coordinator charged with recording P’sak and Policy for OU Kashruth, guide you masterfully through an exploration of the relevant sources in halacha and science. Can gelatin derived from a pig be kosher? What about a kosher animal, improperly slaughtered? Could kosher animal-derived gelatin be parve? What do the most reputable agencies say? Grab some gummy bears and yogurt and tune in! If you have questions or comments for Rabbi Gersten please send them to: gerstene@ou.org
