Haddar Chabura Shmura Matzos

Haddar Chabura Shmura Matzos are the only matzos certified by Star-K this year. These matzos adhere to the strictest 18 minute standard. The 18 minutes are calculated from the time the water is first poured onto the flour, until the very last matza of that batch is put into the oven. Please be aware that not all 18 minute matzos are the same. Most brands calculate the 18 minute interval so that the actual time is significantly greater than 18 minutes. For more information, visit the Star-K website by typing and selecting the Spring 2009, Vol. 29 No. 1 issue of Kashrus Kurrents, “MachineMatzos: Timing is Everything.”
