Such restrictions exist in Jewish dietary laws (Kashrut), in Christian dietary laws, and in Muslim dietary laws (Halal). It originates first from the laws of the Hebrew Bible, and later reinforced for the Muslims in the Quran.[citation needed]

Also among Christians, Seventh-day Adventists consider pork taboo, along with other foods forbidden by Jewish law. The Ethiopian Orthodox Church also discourages pork consumption.
