Leavened grain products that may not be consumed by Jewish people on Passover.

Matzah is eaten instead.

Jewish law prohibits Jewish people from eating, owning, or otherwise benefitting from chametz during the holiday of Passover.

Jewish people must also use a separate set of dishes during the holiday on which chametz is not eaten.

All chametz in the possession of Jews must either be destroyed, disposed of, or sold to a gentile for the duration of the holiday.

Also can be spelled as "chometz" or "chumetz."
We must get rid of all our chametz before Passover.

Hebrew word for "leaven" any food containg an ingrediant that can ferment and rise. Sephardim do not consider rice and beans to be chametz but ashkenazi do.
