I know this is often raised but I ca't find specific details. Could I just check whether I can eat Jarlsberg cheese? It's a Norwegian(?) cheese, hard but not sure if it is pasturised.

Grateful for info.

yes, it's absolutely fine

here's a link to a useful page on safe cheeses in PG

all hard cheese is ok, whether it's pasteurised or not. hth.

WigWamBam · 22/11/2005 19:47

According to this it's pasteurised so you should be OK.

ALL hard cheese is fine, pasteurised or not. Listeria can't grow in hard cheese, not enough moisture. Relax!

aloha - thought mould ripened cheeses like stilton were dodgy in PG???

aloha · 22/11/2005 19:50

Sorry, yes, apart from blue cheeses. But pasteurisation is not an issue in hard cheese.

thanks aloha, didn't meant to sound like a smart aleck!

think that's quite unanimous there that you can enjoy your Jarlsberg, Geranium

Aloha - what do you mean relax? This is pregnancy - major neuroticism time. Anyway, thank you all. Will nip out to the shops this morning.

Mummytosteven, thanks for great site link. And you too WWB. Never occurred to me that there might be a Jarlsberg website. Maybe there is even a fanclub I can join?!

Sorry to but in but what about Port Salut? It isn't mould ripened but is soft..........can't see if it is pasteurised or not and craving it like mad!

Carmenere · 23/11/2005 09:13

Port Salut is pasteurised and should be ok for you to eat
