Mozzarella - can i eat it? I know that it is on the safe list for pregnant women so long as its pasteurised but the cheese I have bought doesn't say whether it is pasteurised or not!

Stupidest question I know but I am desperate for a mozzarella and tomato salad blush which I had last night and now I am wondering of I should actually have it?

I just assumed products had to say if they were unpasteurised?

It will be pastuerised, it's fine. Soft cheeses are not (brie etc) which is a totally differrent process and therefore bacteria which is dangerous is present. Enjoy your salad!!

In the supermarkets the stuff you shouldn't eat is clearly labelled "not suitable for pg women" if it's to be avoided. Mozzarella fine.

If bought in a supermarket, totally fine. If bought in a fancy deli you need to ask as lot of their fresh mozzarellas are unpasturised. You've got me hankering after mozzarella now!!

Sorry! In the end I found a brand in tesco that states that it is made from pasteurised milk grin anyway so was happy with that.
