Can I eat Ricotta cheese when pregnant?

Ricotta cheese is generally safe to eat during pregnancy if it’s made from pasteurised milk.

The pasteurisation process kills bacteria which can pose risks during pregnancy.
As a rule of thumb, always check the label to ensure that the ricotta cheese you are consuming is made from pasteurised milk.

As with any dietary concerns during pregnancy, it's recommended to consult with a healthcare professional for personalized advice based on your health and circumstances.
