My wife and I lived in Africa in the Republic of Congo for a year and a half… I am almost sure during this time I at bugs.. we tried so hard but its Africa… really looking forward to some day when the Messiah restores the temple and I can get the red heifer bath! This teaching particular the section on beans… was very good. It’s one of those things in the west that we just don’t think about

Shalom, Yoel!
If I take a pack of wheat flour, and I see a dead worm in it, should I throw it all away?
Thank you very much!

    Usually when there is one that is visible when opening the pack, then the whole thing is probably infested. My recommendation is the check a little more, if there are no webs, then you should use a a 40-60 mesh sift.

      Shalom Yoel!
      But the fact the bug is dead doesn’t make the wheat impure?
      Thank you very much!

        There is no textual evidence for such an idea.

Shalom, Yoel!
The name of the bug from which the colorant is made is cochineal.
And there is a kind of vegetarian gelatin, but its name is agar. When you read gelatin is always from animal source.
