A kosher product is one that has been prepared under the supervision of a rabbi, usually by a rabbi’s supervision or in accordance with the rabbi’s interpretation of the laws of kashrut, and with the intention of the rabbi or the manufacturer to follow the laws of kashrut correctly. Kashrut is the term given to a set of Jewish dietary laws that are meant to “separate and distinguish” what is “kosher” from what is “treif” (not kosher). Kashrut includes rules about what can be eaten and when animals must be slaughtered.

Kashrut and kosher are two different things. Kashrut is the Jewish dietary laws, while kosher is a classification of food produced under the supervision of a rabbi. Kashrut is the body of Jewish law that regulates what food can and cannot be eaten.
