Hello Rabbi:

Hope you and your family are safe amidst this virus-crisis. I take this time to say thank you for your efforts in maintaining the Pesach list.

A question regarding yogurts; Why isn’t FAGE Plain Greek Yogurt acceptable for consumption during Pesach (you only allow brand Dannon on your list)? The ingredients are:

“Grade A Pasteurized Skimmed Milk and Cream, Live Active Yogurt Cultures (L. Bulgaricus, S. Thermophilus, L. Acidophilus, Bifidus, L. Casei)”

And the company claims:

  • All natural
  • Made with only milk and yogurt cultures
  • Milk from cows that have been fed
    non-GMO feed
  • Protein-rich
  • No added sugar *
  • Excellent source of calcium
  • Gluten-free
  • Vegetarian friendly
