Kosher Eggs

Almost all eggs are Kosher. Under Kosher dietary laws, neutral eggs are considered neither milk nor meat and may be eaten with either.

Kosher-certified eggs are produced according to biblical laws governing the selection and preparation of foods. These eggs are produced by hens at egg farms which have been inspected by a rabbi and found to merit the OU designation.
