Pregnant and raspberries
Raspberries are tasty and healthy fruits that are easy to grow in the garden. A downside is that the plants are sensitive to viruses, diseases and bugs, such as the mosaic virus or the raspberry beetle. These diseases usually do not cause much harm to people's health, but they often lead to a lot of pesticides on raspberries. In addition, raspberries are difficult to wash, so that pesticides and possible infections, with the parasite parasite Toxoplasma, which are dangerous for pregnant women, cannot be removed. On the other hand, raspberries are very healthy fruits with a lot of vitamin C, folic acid and antioxidants. Raspberries can also have a beneficial effect on women who would like to become pregnant because it is said that the raspberry increases libido.
Raspberries during pregnancy
Raspberries are very healthy fruits due to their high nutritional value and therefore fit very well in a pregnant woman's diet. In connection with possible contamination with the parasite Toxoplasma gondii, it is recommended to wash the raspberries first, even if this is at the expense of the taste. Since the parasite cannot survive temperatures of -20 degrees Celsius or temperatures above 72 degrees Celsius, frozen raspberries, raspberry jam or cooked raspberries are always safe.
