Gripe Water

Q. There is a product for babies called gripe water which has been used in Europe for over 100 years. It is taken orally for gas and colic. Does it need a hechsher?

A. Gripe water refers to a mix of herbal extracts which are believed to be beneficial in relieving colic for newborn babies. Since it is given to the baby in a liquid, edible form, it must meet a standard of kashrus similar to other edible remedies. It often includes kosher-sensitive ingredients (glycerin, citric acid and flavor), and we, therefore, cannot recommend this product without kosher certification.
