Is it safe to have Gloucester during pregnancy?

// PregnantPlate Short Answer //

Should I opt for single or double gloucester cheese during pregnancy?

Gloucester - also known as 

Single gloucester cheese, double gloucester cheese
Checks before eating
Always opt for Gloucester cheese made with pasteurized milk.

Gloucester cheese is a traditional, semi-hard cheese with its origins in England. Single gloucester cheese is crumbly and lighter in texture whereas double gloucester cheese is allowed to age for a longer period of time, making it harder. Most studies indicate that aged cheeses have lesser chances of breeding listeria causing bacteria. Hence, double gloucester is considered safe for pregnant women to eat. However, it is advisable to consult your doctor before having gloucester cheese while you are expecting.
