Mi Yodeya is a question and answer site for those who base their lives on Jewish law and tradition and anyone interested in learning more. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Under certain conditions, I know that uncontaminated (e.g. no insects / meat, etc) plant-based foods are prohibited (ie., non-kosher). Examples I can think of include:

  1. Non-kosher wine

  2. Chometz during Pesach and

  3. Plants harvested on the sabbatical/shmita year

What other conditions would render uncontaminated plant-based foods non-kosher?

  • Tevel.
  • Orla.
  • R'vay, t'ruma, peret, etc., depending on circumstances.
  • Nosar, pigul, lan baazara, etc.
  • Kil'ay hakerem.
  • Tikroves avoda zara.
  • Ir hanidachas.
  • Ashera.
  • Arbaa minim and s'chach and Sukka decorations on Sukos. (S'chach can't be food anyway, but if you wanted to eat it, you couldn't.)
  • Shvi'is after zman habiur
  • Bishul Akum

Arguably, chometz she'avar alav hapesach is not excluded in the question. –  YEZ Mar 24 at 19:39
