Product Description Shmurah means watched, and it is an apt description of this Matzah (unleavened bread). The wheat used to bake it is carefully watched (protected) against any contact with water from the moment it is harvested, since water would cause leavening and thus disqualify it for use on Pesach. Shmurah Matzot are round, kneaded and shaped by hand, and are similar to the Matzot that were baked by the Children of Israel as they left Egypt. Shmurah Matzot are baked under strict supervision to avoid any possibility of leavening during the baking process. It is fitting to use Shmurah Matzah on each of the two Seder nights for the three Matzot of the Seder plate.
