Pregnant and avocado

  1. Avocados have been on the shelves of Dutch supermarkets since the eighties, but in 2017 they are hipper than ever. Avocados are no longer just eaten in a salad, but they are used for the most diverse recipes. They are used in sushi, guacamole and sandwiches, but more surprisingly, avocado ice cream is made and avocado brownies are baked with it. The popularity of the avocado is not only due to its delicious taste, but also to its healthy properties. Even during pregnancy, avocados can provide a huge health boost. But some avocado products can also be dangerous during pregnancy.

Dangers of avocado during pregnancy

  1. Although avocados can make a significant contribution to health due to the many good nutrients, there is a danger for pregnant women when eating some products based on avocado. This mainly concerns fresh avocado puree or guacamole. These products are often kept in the refrigerator and may be contaminated with Listeria. Especially at the end of the shelf life, the contamination can be large enough to lead to Listeriosis. Listeriosis can cause miscarriage during pregnancy, and risk products should therefore be avoided as much as possible. It is therefore advisable to eat ready-to-eat products with sliced ​​or ground avocado from the refrigerator as fresh as possible or to prepare fresh avocados yourself.
