CARLSBAD, Calif., – The Orthodox Union kosher for Passover symbol, has recently been added to the Penta water packaging. This means Penta not only meets the strict, year-round dietary kosher regulations of the Jewish law, but also the special preparation requirements for Passover.@@img1
Penta, regarded by many as having set the industry standard for bottled water quality with its 11-hour, 13-step purification process, uses no chemical additives to clean its water. Penta averages 0.5 parts per million of total dissolved solids, making it the cleanest-known bottled water on the market.
“It’s a very impressive facility. I’ve never seen such a high-tech bottling facility,” said Rabbi Aharon Yitzchok Shapiro, an Orthodox Union Rabbinic Field Representative, after visiting the Penta water facility. “Everything I saw conformed to the highest standards of what we’re looking for in certifying a product kosher.”
In addition to conducting initial inspections, Rabbi Shapiro also makes regular unannounced visits to companies to insure the kosher program regulations are being met.
“Intrinsically, water itself is kosher,” pointed out Rabbi Shapiro. “It’s the additives we’re concerned about, as well as if the equipment is being used to bottle anything else besides water.”
“This kosher for Passover recognition is a natural for Penta water,” said William D. Holloway, CEO of Bio-Hydration Research Lab, Inc. (BHRL), maker of Penta water.
According to the Orthodox Union, its kosher supervision symbol, is the world’s most recognized kosher symbol. More than 60 percent of kosher supervised foods (approximately 275,000 products) in the United States carry this symbol on their labels.
