I saw a post on a vegan subreddit about how vegans who eat flour aren’t real vegans because flour contains bugs. There are inevitably going to be some bugs on the wheat when it is harvested, and these bugs get ground up with the rest of the wheat and become part of the flour. This got me thinking, how is it possible for flour to be kosher then? Of course it could be harvested by hand and each piece of wheat could be inspected for bugs, but that would be extremely labor intensive and I doubt it’s done that way.
How is flour kosher?
