Can you eat goat's cheese when pregnant?

Goat cheese is generally considered safe to eat during pregnancy if it’s made from pasteurized milk.

Pasteurization involves heating the milk to eliminate harmful bacteria, reducing the risk of foodborne illnesses, including those that could affect pregnant women.

Always check product labels to ensure that the goat cheese is made from pasteurized milk. Many commercially available goat cheeses are pasteurized, but it's a good practice to confirm this information.

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