Osem Passover Matzah
I just purchased OSEM Passover Matzahs.
I found the following words on the package,
which I had never heard before.
Regular Matzah MEHUDAR
It appears Mehudar means “halachically superior”,
“above and beyond what is strictly required”.
That sounds good. Is it correct?
“Yashan means that the flour used in this baked item came from
wheat that took root in the ground before the PREVIOUS 17th of Nissan.”
Yashan also means “OLD”, because the flour is one year old.
“The matzah you purchased is probably perfectly fresh.”
That does not sound so good.
How is this flour kept fresh for one year? Is it really safe to eat?
Happy Passover in advance.
