Kosher USA: How Coke Became Kosher and Other Tales of Modern Food traces how all-American products like Coca-Cola and Jell-O tried to become kosher; the debates among rabbis over the incorporation of modern science into Jewish law; and the story of how Manischewitz wine became the first kosher product to win over non-Jewish consumers.
