More than a diet

For those seeking out products that are NOT Kosher-Certified, NKC has evolved from a diet into a lifestyle and identity. The NKC community is growing this very minute, and it may just be what you were looking for! A downloadable version of this is available as an Android App at Google Play.

Just as vegans shun consumption of meat products to reinforce their love for animal life, and just as observant kosher-keepers shun consumption of pork and shellfish to reinforce their Jewish identity, the NKC community is evolving for many these days as a reinforcement of NOT their NEW identity, but their TRUE identity: Occidental au Naturel.

For them, we say “Welcome Home!”

not anti-kosher

So much of what we all eat and drink is considered kosher under Kashrus religious laws (e.g., water). However, our surveys strongly indicate that no less than 30% of consumers prefer no religious oversight or meddling in the production of the food they purchase, while another 23% expect above-average transparency with kosher seals when this is the case. Sure, kosher-keepers should have access to a kosher market of products, but those who are not kosher observers should also have reasonable access to avoid kosher certification in the secular retail market and their livelihood. That’s a true respect for religious freedom!

NKC is a refreshing new take that offers a fair alternative for hundreds of millions of consumers to “Exercise their Dietary Free Will!” ®

For many who live in the United States, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Canada, the NKC diet may just be the catalyst to discovering the Occidental au Naturel identity that resides within them!

Most of our blogging is intended to educate consumers of all faiths and identities on the kosher certification industry. Food companies don’t actively promote their kosher certification other than providing a small kosher seal (called a hekhsher) on its label. Our research has shown that these kosher seals average just 10% the size of other common food certification seals, so there’s no wonder that most of us are not “Kosher Aware”!
