Is Light Kedem Grape Juice ok for kiddush?

Light Kedem grape juice has added water which I guess is to dilute the taste a little (hence the name light). Can this grape juice be used for kiddush and havdalah?

Kedem Light is not good for kiddush or havdalah. Grape juice that has added water is not fit for kiddush or havdalah.

I have spoken to the owner of Kedem.

Even their regular grape juice has some water added to it. (Its used for the grape juice concentrate)

It’s ok when you add back the water that was removed when making the concentrate. But if any additional water is added beyond that it is a problem.

@Isaacz I would be interested in hearing what Kedem has to say about this and why they hold its ok.

I actually prefer diluted grape juice over full strength. Does that matter?

Doesn’t matter. All that means is that you like flavored water more than grape juice.
