Chicken broth


Dear Rabbi,

I keep about six hours between milk and meat.

If I only have liquid chicken broth, does that still require six hours before milk?

Would it ever allow a shorter span?




  1. If the techicken broth is from real chicken (not from a pareve instant soup mix) then we do wait six hours, even though it isn’t actual meat.
  2. There are different customs, however, the general custom is to wait six hours, with the exception of a person that is ill, or a nursing woman, who need to drink milk earlier. Then they can be lenient and drink milk after one hour.

Best wishes
