Halal and Kosher diets are two common eating patterns based on the principles of Jewish and Islamic laws, respectively.
- Halal is used to describe foods that are permitted under Islamic law as defined by the Quran. These are strict guidelines regarding how livestock is raised, slaughtered, and prepared before consumption.
- Kosher is a term used to describe foods prepared following traditional Jewish dietary laws. For example, under Kosher guidelines, foods classified as meat cannot be consumed in the same meal as foods classified as dairy.
