What makes an ink product Kosher is its glycerin and coloring ingredients. The glycerin used in Tast-Ink is made from vegetable products that have never come in contact with such non-Kosher products as pork or shellfish. Among several other differences between the Kosher and non-Kosher glycerin used in edible inks, is that to be certified Kosher, STS Inks cannot take advantage of the lower freight costs of having glycerin delivered in trailer tankers and then pumped into re-usable totes that may have both contained non-Kosher products. The Kosher glycerin used by STS Inks, must be specially packaged and delivered directly in brand new totes.
STS Edible Inks do not contain any of the major allergens that identified by FDA.
