Pregnancy friendly

preg largeThere is some confusion about the appropriateness of yoghurt as a food during pregnancy.

Women are advised to avoid certain foods during pregnancy and this includes soft cheeses, soft serve ice-cream as well as unpasteurised dairy foods.

These foods may carry the listeria bacteria which can increase the risk of an infection called listeriosis, which may be harmful to the growing foetus.

Pasteurised dairy foods, which include commercial milks and yoghurts, are safe during pregnancy as long as you have checked the use-by-date. It's important to not confuse the "good" probiotic bacteria, known as aBc cultures in Jalna Dairy Foods, with harmful listeria bacteria.

Jalna yoghurts are all pasteurised and therefore safe to consume during pregnancy.
