Israeli products are not easily detected, it is not as simple as a certain barcode or even saying made in Israel.
Scan the barcode, if the barcode is known on our database as an Israeli product then it will show as Israeli. If the product is Israeli, but is not in our database, please click the add to database button at the bottom of your screen, so others may benefit. We need people to keep the database accurate by adding known Israeli products on a regular basis.
