Is it safe to eat unpasteurized Gruyere cheese during pregnancy

Yes, you can eat Gruyere cheese, even if it is unpasteurized, during pregnancy. The process of making Gruyere cheese involves heating milk in high temperatures. So, even if the cheese is made using unpasteurized milk, the cooking and curing process kills all harmful bacteria.
