A Kosher Certified Prenatal Vitamin

Written in Partnership with Prenate
June 29, 2105

It is recommended that all women of childbearing age take a prenatal vitamin specially formulated to support both mother and baby during pregnancy. Prenate® Star is a prescription prenatal vitamin that provides complete nutrition. What sets it apart from other prenatal vitamins is that it includes 1 mg of folic acid (USP) and 155 mg of calcium formate, a type of calcium which is more readily absorbed by the body than calcium citrate and calcium carbonate.1 And Prenate Star is kosher certified.

The Orthodox Union ( OU) facilitates the observance of the biblical kosher laws and for more than 80 years has set the bar for the highest standard of kosher certification. The OU certified Prenate® Star with kosher status in June 2014.

For a product to be recognized as kosher certified, it must be manufactured under the following strict guidelines:

  • An application is submitted to the OU for kosher certification
  • A rabbinic field representative is assigned to visit the production facility.
  • The rabbinic representative inspects the facility and observes its manufacturing processes to ensure that all aspects of production, including ingredients, meet the requirements of biblical kosher laws.
  • After completing the inspection, the rabbinic field representative completes and submits a report on the production process to the OU for review.
  • If the OU grants the certification, a contract is created and signed by the manufacturer that outlines OU requirements for kosher certification.

In addition to its kosher certification, Prenate® Star contains 17 essential vitamins and minerals.
