(a)When a forbidden object is mixed with a permitted object, the mixture may be prohibited to be eaten mid'Oraisa, prohibited to be eaten mid'Rabanan, or permitted to be eaten, as follows:

1.If most of the mixture is Isur, it is prohibited mid'Oraisa.

2.If most of the mixture is Heter, but the Isur is more than one sixtieth of the Heter, i.e. the Isur is "Nosen Ta'am" (lends taste) to the Heter, it is prohibited mid'Rabanan (since "Ta'am k'Ikar," the "taste" is like the essence, is a Din d'Rabanan - there are those who prohibit this mixture mid'Oraisa, when the two mixed substances are unidentical ("Min beshe'Eino Mino"), asserting that "Ta'am k'Ikar" is mid'Oraisa).

3.If the amount of Isur is less than one sixtieth of the Heter, and is not Nosen Ta'am to the Heter, the mixture is permitted.

(b)The above applies when unidentical substances are mixed (e.g. they were cooked together and the Isur is Nosen Ta'am to the Heter). However, when a liquid mixes with an identical liquid, the Tana'im argue as to the status of the mixture. According to Rabanan, since identical substances are not Nosen Ta'am to each other at all, the Isur can be nullified by a majority of Heter (and sixty parts of Heter are not required). According to Rebbi Yehudah, the opposite is true. Even a miniscule amount (a "Mashehu") of Isur prohibits the mixture, since mid'Oraisa the Isur is not nullified at all. (When two identical dry substances become mixed together, all agree that the majority in the mixture determines the mixture's Halachic status - TOSFOS Yevamos 82a, DH Rebbi Yehudah. See, however, RASHI cited by Tosfos 81b DH Rebbi Yehudah.)

(a)Abaye and Rava argue regarding how we define a case of a forbidden item that became mixed with a permitted item. Abaye maintains that we follow the taste of the items. In a case where the two items (such as new wine and grapes) have the same taste, it is considered a mixture of Min b'Mino (in which forbidden and permitted quantities of the same species are mixed together). The entire mixture is forbidden if it contains even a small amount of Yayin Nesech (this follows the ruling of Rebbi Yehudah; see above, entry #2a:b).

(b)Rava maintains that we follow the names of the items. Since new wine and grapes are defined and labeled as different items, it is considered a mixture of Min b'she'Eino Mino (in which forbidden and permitted quantities of different species are mixed together). The Yayin Nesech forbids the entire mixture only if its taste would be noticeable in the mixture (i.e. more than one sixtieth - RASHI).
