Is Gerber Rice Cereal K4P for Sepharadim?
Hi. Can’t see ingredients from the Gerber site. Please include. Thanks
- List item
INGREDIENTS: RICE FLOUR, SOY AND SUNFLOWER LECITHINS, POTASSIUM PHOSPHATE.
VITAMINS AND MINERALS: CALCIUM CARBONATE, IRON (FERROUS FUMARATE), VITAMIN C (ASCORBIC ACID), ZINC SULFATE, VITAMIN E (ALPHA TOCOPHERYL ACETATE), NIACINAMIDE, VITAMIN B2 (RIBOFLAVIN), VITAMIN B1 (THIAMIN MONONITRATE), VITAMIN B6 (PYRIDOXINE HYDROCHLORIDE), VITAMIN B12, FOLIC ACID.
It’s kosher for Pesach. Being that it’s for babies, no difference if Sephardi or Ashkenazi.
Harav - my friend told me he spoke with Gerber and they told him that the rice cereal is made on the same equipment that Gerber makes their oatmeal cereal. Many times, the company produces both products on the same day.
Does this change anything?
If not, can you please explain why there is no concern that the equipment’s chametz flavors will affect the rice cereal?
Thank you again for all of your great work!
Have your friend ask Gerber that exact question and they will be able to elaborate on the procedures done between runs that make it impossible to taste a previous flavor.
Think about it, did you ever eat a product and taste a different flavor in it?! Did you eat a post cereal and taste another flavor.
These things don’t happen in today’s world here in the USA. The risk of allergy lawsuits alone is staggering.
