Pesach: Selling products with wheat ingredients together with the chametz


Can I sell products containing wheat protein (like soluble soup mix) together with the chametz?


Rabbi Yaakov Ariel

While such products can technically be sold with the chametz, it is preferable to eat them before Pesach. The sale is meant primarily for those who would suffer a considerable financial loss and whose genuine intentions are to completely sell their chametzdik merchandise. For those who would not experience a major financial loss, it is optimal not to sell full-fledged chametz (chametz gamur); rather, it is best to eat it prior to Pesach and burn whatever is left over.
