Pregnant and gorgonzola

  1. It is not recommended to eat soft blue vein or blue mold cheeses made from raw milk during pregnancy. The famous Italian cheese gorgonzola is in some cases made from raw cow's milk. The blue cheese gorgonzola can often be found on pizzas, in pastas or in sauces. The cheese is then usually heated and therefore safe for pregnant women to eat. But gorgonzola is also often used in salads, with fruit or eaten as a dessert. Is it safe and what are the risks of gorgonzola eaten cold?

Variants

  1. There are different varieties of gorgonzola. The gorgonzola piccante is a somewhat firmer blue cheese with a spicy taste. The gorgonzola dolce is soft and creamy and is difficult to cut into beautiful pieces due to the soft, buttery texture. The naturale is in between in terms of firmness and taste. The gorgonzola piccante used to be made from raw milk from cows and then matured for at least 12 months. Today, all gorgonzola is made from pasteurized milk. The softer gorgonzola dolce is ripened much shorter and is often prepared with a different kind of Penicillium glaucum, which makes the taste less spicy. There is also magor or gormas cheese, where the name is derived from ma scarpone and gor

Gorgonzola during pregnancy

  1. Because gorgonzola is made from pasteurized milk, it is not seen as a risk product. Gorgonzola is therefore not discouraged for pregnant women. There is nevertheless a risk of contamination of the cheese after pasteurization. As a result, there have also been several recalls in the past. If gorgonzola is heated before use, the cheese is certainly safe. The cheese must have been at least 72 degrees or higher. This happens when, for example, processing in pastas and pizzas that are still going into the oven. Also in sauces that are heated well after adding the gorgonzola are safe.
