Shehechiyanu on animal products


Although one may feel great enjoyment when eating a type of animal product for the first time, one does not recite the blessing of Shehechiyanu on such an occasion if it had always been available.

The blessing was designed specifically for enjoying something which was unavailable and now became available, and the animal product was available beforehand.

(Mishneh Berurah 225:16)

Have a great day,
