thought hard cheeses were ok

Its not pasturised - so that will be the reason. However its never in the lists of cheeses to avoid so perhaps is ok as it is hard so not the ideal environment for bacteria (hmmm bit tenuous!)

Yes hard cheeses fine. Soft cheese <apart from philly etc> and mould ripened cheeses are a no no.

I was told to avoid as its not usually pasturised hmm but doesnt matter anyway as I use the dairy free one from tescos

YOU CAN EAT PARMESAN!!! It's too dry for listeria to cultivate, and I really wish someone had told me that when I was pg sad

its not cheese (cant be) but tastes exactly the same as regular parmesan. comes powdered for sprinkling over pasta rather than in a block that you grate
