Pesach List

PAPER & PAPER PRODUCTS

Paper and paper goods (plates, paper towels, paper serviettes, etc.) produced in Australia may contain wheat starches that are chametz. However in accordance with the letter of the law authorities consider starch in the making of paper plates as non-food nullified before Pesach and allow their use. Further more Shulchan Aruch discusses the use of starches in the making of utensils and considers that after two months the starch loses its ability to be able to leech into food products. As such if the manufacture date of the paper goods is older that two months in accordance with the letter of the law there is no problem. However as with all things on Pesach, where we are often stricter than the letter of the law many do not use paper plates in contact with food unless they have a kashrut endorsement. Similarly recycled paper products are subject to this stringency, as they may be made with recycled paper pulp that contains wheat starch. Coated paper plates produced in the US that may contain maize cornstarch, according to most authorities are not even subject to any stringency due to maize corn-starch being only of a kitniyot origin. All aluminium foil rolls produced in Australia are produced in a manner that allows their use on Pesach. Aluminium foil containers, however, may be coated with either non-kosher or chametz lubricants. In general plastic tablecloths, plastic bags, plastic plates, plastic bowls, plastic cups, plastic cutlery, expanded polystyrene (foam) cups and paper cups (hot or cold) available in Australia are produced chametz-free. Note however that some plastic tablecloths and some plastic bags do come with a fine powder film and this is quite common; care should be taken as the powder may be chametz. For those wanting to observe this stringency the following branded and non-branded products have been investigated and found to be chametz-free based on information supplied by the manufacturer. They have not been produced under supervision. All brands of cling wrap are acceptable.

PFoil ContainersSemi-rigid Aluminium foil containers are now produced with kosher lubricants and not required to be washed. However, some of the ingredients used in the kosher lubricant may be made in vessels that have had Chametz in them and therefore it is praiseworthy but not obligatory to wash these containers before Pesach use.
