Pregnant and bacon
For some pregnant women it is unclear whether they can eat bacon during pregnancy. It contains a lot of salt, it contains nitrite and the question is whether it contains no harmful bacteria or parasites such as Listeria or Toxoplasma. Due to the high salt content and the added preservative nitrite, it is wise to eat bacon in moderation during pregnancy. In addition, eating smoked bacon can be dangerous for pregnant women.
Bacon during pregnancy
Smoked bacon can be eaten in moderation during pregnancy, provided it is not stored for too long and in a good way. Unsmoked bacon should be fried first in view of possible Listeria contamination.
