Halacha - Dairy Bread
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: I recently saw some saltine crackers that were labled kosher dairy. Why are these crackers kosher? Saltines are sometimes eaten with meat (eg chili) and should be "dairy bread" which is forbidden! Can you explain?
Answer: First of all, many opinions hold that only true bread products have this limitation, and not crackers that are mezonos. Additionally, sometimes these products are not truly dairy, for example Thomas English Muffins have less than 1/60 dairy ingredients. Your best bet is to contact the Hashgacha thst supervises the to inquire.
