1. What is Shmurah Matzah? How is it different from regular Matzah?
Shmurah Matzah means Matzah that has been guarded. For Matzah to be considered Kosher for Passover,” it must be entirely free of leaven, meaning the dough is not allowed to rise at all before baking! To make sure no pre-bakin’ shakin’ goes on, the flour and the water – the sole ingredients of Matzah – are carefully guarded from before harvest and before drawing respectively and kept far away from each other.
2. How will my order be shipped?
Depending on your region and the size of your order, Matzah.biz will ship with UPS, FedEx, DHL or a reliable private trucking company. However it gets there, it will be fast and it will be fresh – and that’s what really counts!
3. Is there a minimum amount to each order?
Yes, since we are a wholesale distributor, all orders must reach a minimum of $500 before shipping costs. For smaller orders, you can visit www.MatzahOnline.com
4. How do I track my order?
As soon as your order is shipped which is usually within 1 business day, we’ll email a tracking number to you so you can follow its progress.
5. Do you guarantee whole Matzahs?
While we can ensure that all of our Matzah leaves the warehouse whole, shipping and handling may cause breakage and we cannot guarantee its condition at time of delivery.

All Matzahs contain flour and water only. Besides for the traditional wheat flour Matzah, we stock a singular list of specialty Matzahs including whole wheat, spelt and gluten-free oat.
8. How many Matzahs are in a pound?
This depends on the thickness of each handmade Matzah. On average, a pound is made of between 7 and 9 Matzahs.
9. How much Matzah do I need for a communal Seder?
About 1 1/2 Matzahs per adult is the right amount for the minimum Matzah required by Jewish law.
10. What can I do with broken Matzahs?
According to tradition, whole Matzahs should be used on the Seder plate and for the blessing at the beginning of each Passover meal. For everything else, there’s Broken Matzah.

We sure do, by special order only. Contact us for more information.
12. Who needs specialty Matzahs and why does it cost so much?
Someone on a no-wheat diet can now choose to eat spelt or gluten-free oat Shmurah Matzah. Oat and spelt Matzah is produced in small amounts in a handful of bakeries worldwide making it very expensive to import and distribute.
