My daughter’s doctor recommended peppermint oil capsules for some minor stomach trouble she’s been having. I haven’t been able to find any with a hechsher, or even peppermint oil that is meant for oral use.
Does anyone know where I can find them?February 24, 2011 1:49 pm at 1:49 pm #744074
use real peppermint tea
available all overFebruary 24, 2011 2:31 pm at 2:31 pm #744075
First ask your Rav, Find the largest empty Vegicaps, & push the oil capsules in. I did that for a while until I became disillusioned
I don’t think puncturing the oil caps into the kosher caps will workFebruary 24, 2011 4:12 pm at 4:12 pm #744076csilver1516Member
Thanks for your suggestions. About the peppermint tea, I was under the impression that the peppermint oil caps are more potent, and one would need to drink many cups of it to get the same effect. Is that true?February 24, 2011 6:11 pm at 6:11 pm #744077

MOD80 I doubt there is any oil in the tea, though some practitioners recommend it for “soothing” which might not be dependent on oil
here is a copy of the Nutrition panel of a peppermint tea box

Glycerin and gelatin do not need to be animal based!February 24, 2011 10:39 pm at 10:39 pm #744081
I know but how do you know vats vat?February 24, 2011 10:43 pm at 10:43 pm #744082
and if you look at the nutrition label for PAM which is 100% oil you will see fat content per serving: zero!
those labels have all kinds of crazy legal loopholesFebruary 24, 2011 10:44 pm at 10:44 pm #744083
“Frequently, “diet food” is not different from regular food. A loaf of bread claiming to have 25% fewer Calories per slice than the regular bread may actually be sliced 25% thinner and sell for a higher price than the regular bread. Reduction of the serving size is often used by manufacturers as a way of reducing the calories per serving. As a consequence, if the amount of fat or other nutrient falls below 0.5 gram per serving, the manufacturer may round it to zero. Coffee creamers, for example, may contain 30% or 40% fat, but by defining the serving size as one teaspoon, the manufacturer may claim that one serving has zero fat, even though one teaspoon may not be a sufficient amount to whiten a cup of coffee. It may take two or three servings to do the job. Examination of the weight of the serving sizes and the ingredients list can frequently be used to identify this type of misinformation.”February 24, 2011 10:45 pm at 10:45 pm #744084
peppermint tea contains peppermint oil
in fact it contains the exact amout of peppermint oil that the Boreh put in it
the intense smell of peppermint tea comes solely from the oilFebruary 24, 2011 10:56 pm at 10:56 pm #744085
So peppermint oil ia not a fat according to the food chemists?
Interesting indeedFebruary 25, 2011 1:05 am at 1:05 am #744086
of course they hold it is a “fat”
but what goes on the label is heavily determined by FDA regulation
as i said above Pam is 100% canola oil
look at the label
0 gms of fat per serving
thats because the made the serving size so small they are allowed to round the amount off to zero

Canola oil is advised for those suffering with cholesterol because it has no fat. It is also used in factories on machines as it is not water soluble.February 25, 2011 2:02 am at 2:02 am #744088
