The London Beth Din hailed a record-breaking number of kosher-certified products for 2021 as its ‘Really Jewish Food Guide’ hit the shelves.

The Kosher London Beth Din (KLBD), which falls under the auspices of the United Synagogue and Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, said 8,300 products were now listed, up from about 7,700 last year.

Newly-allowed are three flavours of M&M’s – Biscuit, Crunchy Caramel and Salted Caramel, plus Salted Caramel Twix, Warburtons’ Gluten Free Toastie, Penderyn Welsh Whiskies, and some Tiptree Gins.

For those on a New Year diet, choices now include low-calorie rice substitute Fullgreens’ Riced Cauliflower, and Broccoli and Sweet Potato, plus Greenfield Spices and Bruce Dairy Free Drinks.

“The guide has become an indispensable feature of Jewish life within our homes,” said Mirvis.

“High standards have been impressively maintained throughout the pandemic, during which there has been added pressure to give real-time guidance to kosher consumers and in-person supervision.”

Support your Jewish community. Support your Jewish News

Thank you for helping to make Jewish News the leading source of news and opinion for the UK Jewish community. Today we're asking for your invaluable help to continue putting our community first in everything we do.

Unlike other Jewish media, we do not charge for content. That won’t change. Because we are free, we rely on advertising to cover our costs. This vital lifeline, which has dropped in recent years, has fallen further due to coronavirus.

For as little as £5 a month you can help sustain the vital work we do in celebrating and standing up for Jewish life in Britain.

Jewish News holds our community together and keeps us connected. Like a synagogue, it’s where people turn to feel part of something bigger. It also proudly shows the rest of Britain the vibrancy and rich culture of modern Jewish life.

You can make a quick and easy one-off or monthly contribution of £5, £10, £20 or any other sum you’re comfortable with.

100% of your donation will help us continue celebrating our community, in all its dynamic diversity...


Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.


There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.


In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.


Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish News also produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.

Easy access

In an age when news is readily accessible, Jewish News provides high-quality content free online and offline, removing any financial barriers to connecting people.

Voice of our community to wider society

The Jewish News team regularly appears on TV, radio and on the pages of the national press to comment on stories about the Jewish community. Easy access to the paper on the streets of London also means Jewish News provides an invaluable window into the community for the country at large.

We hope you agree all this is worth preserving.
