Regarding taking a vegan vitamin that does not have kosher certification, may I take this vitamin with the following ingredients:
black pepper fruit extract (those 4 words are listed as one item)
Organic Rice Concentrate
Thank you for your question.
It is definitely preferred to get such vitamins with a hechsher, however in retrospect, I contacted a kashrus professional and he said that the Organic Rice Concentrate could have an issue of bishul akum, but there is room for leniency.
