ple ingredients need Rabbinic supervision? And what about pastries and
other baked goods?
A. L. — W. Bloomfield
CAKES AND PASTRIES: The shortenings used are
ne problem common to baked goods
is the use of release agents to prevent
the product from sticking to the surface.
These are not listed as ingredients, and can be
produced from animal, vegetable, or mineral oils.
To enhance dough production and extend the
freshness of the bread, manufacturers use dough
conditioners, softeners, and specialty shortenings
in their products. Bread mixes are also often us-
ed. These contain all the fats, oils, glycerides,
stabilizers, flavorings, and other additives
necessary for a quality product. Without a reliable
kashruth guarantee they must be assured to be
pose a unique additional problem.
Bagels are made from a special dough and are
first boiled and baked. Many bagel shops, or the
central locations which supply them, also sell non-
Kosher deli meats which may be boiled in the
same vats as the bagels themselves. Therefore,
bagels cannot be assumed to be kosher unless
there is a proper kashruth supervision.

FLAVORINGS, FILLINGS, FROSTINGS AND TOP-

Many "Jewish" foods — such as challah, bagels,
etc. — are now available in a totally non-kosher
form. If one wishes to maintain standards of
kashruth or if one is simply interested in obtain-
ing an "authentic" product — one must check that
the product is kosher certified. There are many
baked products available in the grocery or super-
market with nationally acceptable kashruth cer-
tification. As for freshly baked products in the
Detroit Metropolitan area, the VAAD certifies
