Bishul Yisroel

Q. If I buy a kosher-certified product does that mean that it is bishul Yisroel?

A. Certain foods require bishul Yisroel in order to be kosher, but many do not. Therefore, you should not assume that certified products are necessarily bishul Yisroel. [The exact details of which items do or do not require bishul Yisroel is beyond the scope of this answer.] What you can be sure of is that every reputable hashgacha definitely considers whether each food requires bishul Yisroel and only certifies those in which they either have a Jew participate in the cooking (bishul Yisroel) or decide that bishul Yisroel is not required.
