Kosher USA: How Coke Became Kosher and Other Tales of Modern Food with Roger Horowitz

Hagley History Hangout

Dr. Roger Horowitz discusses at the Hagley Museum and Library the history of modern kosher food and the growth and development of the kosher food industry in the 20th century. In explaining how Coke became kosher he talks about how rabbis used Jewish law and modern chemistry to determine what food products were kosher and how food manufacturers could change their ingredients and methods to adhere to Jewish dietary law. Horowitz also discusses the mass appeal of kosher foods to non-Jewish consumers. He cites a statistic that at one time only one quarter of kosher food purchasers were Jewish. Horowitz concludes with a brief section on kosher meat production and how the output of a once large industry has become a specialty product due to issues of economy and changes in the meat industry. Throughout the lecture Horowitz discusses his own family history and personal background, having grown up in an observant Jewish household.
