Q. Why do frozen vegetables require Pesach certification?
A. Frozen vegetables sold as “raw” are, in fact, cooked for a few minutes in a process known as “blanching”. Some of the factories which blanch vegetables also blanch pasta/chametz, and, therefore, frozen vegetables should only be used with Pesach hashgachah. This guarantees that the vegetables were not cooked on equipment which had been previously used for chametz.
