Kosher

In Jewish dietary laws food must be ritually cleansed and prepared to be kosher or fit to be eaten. There are strict rules regarding the slaughter of animals while dairy products and meat must not be consumed together. Food considered not kosher by Jews includes pork, birds of prey and seafood that has no scales and fins.

The term kosher is now widely used to include what is genuine and legitimate.
