How do I know if something is Kosher?
Certain foods, like fresh fruit, do not need a hechsher (a symbol indicating that a kosher agency approved a product as kosher) and many of these products are available in Singapore in the main supermarket chains.
Other products have a hechsher on the label or are listed on the databases that are maintained by the various kosher agencies.
Is there a list of what products are kosher?
Most kashrut companies include a list of their certified products on their websites. Such as the New South Wales Kashrut Authority, a great database, especially since many products available in Singapore are imported from Australia.
