Feta cheese?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I read that pasteurized feta is now considered safe and have indulged in a few spinach/avocado/tomato salads.  I am still a little weary since with my past pregnancies it was on the big no-no list.  I crave it when preggo and it's the same this time, and it is SO good.  What are your thoughts?

Yes, I have also heard that as long as the cheese is pasteurized it is ok.

Mmmmmm I love feta cheese.  I crave this quinoa salad with feta, cucumbers, and tomatoes all the time, especially while pregnant.  As long as it's pasteurized it's totally fine.

If it's pasteurized it's fine! check the ingredients list before you buy it. I found that it's virtually impossible to find cheese that is NOT pasteurized/made of pasteurized milk- maybe at a farmer's market or specialty shop.

I eat foods off the traditional "no-no" list all the time. Actually, raw (un-pastuerized) cheese and milk is so much healthier for you.  Just make sure its from a good, organic source.  That said I had some amazing sushi the other night.  It is the best food for my upset stomach and nausea.

Yeah cheese made in the us is almost always pasteurized, I think.  Sometimes european imports aren't.
