    Default Egg products

    What's the go with things that contain egg when pregnant. I'm not talking about cakes and things where the egg is cooked, I'm talking about dressings etc. I've just drenched my veges in this sauce (see piccie) then read the ingredients and see that it contains egg. Should I assume it's uncooked and stay clear? ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1430211408.850784.jpg

    I can't see the pic but I don't understand the issue with egg when pregnant. I've never been told not to eat egg and I'm on my third pregnancy.

    It's uncooked egg that's the issue. That's why you can't have aioli etc.

    Raw eggs have a high listeria risk and shouldn't be eaten in pregnancy. Cooked eggs are fine.

    I think the prepackaged sauce should be fine. I wouldn't eat a home made mayo with raw egg though.

    The problem is with dressings that are store purchased in a bottle, you never know if the egg has been cooked in the product or not. Most dressings I eat mention egg (like coleslaw dressing!) I guess I'll just avoid them too.

    As far as I understand it ..
    Store purchased mayos and sauces that are bought from ambient (room temperature) aisles with egg are fine while pregnant. They have gone through food processing that means the risk of listeria is gone. (As long as they are stored correctly after opening.)

    Freshly prepared mayos and sauces with raw egg in restaurants/ home made and refrigerated sauces in supermarkets (eg aioli in produce dept. of Woolworths/Coles) are not ok.

    Most store bought sauces & dressings are safe because they pasteurise the egg (as a preservative measure), therefore it is technically 'cooked'. But you would need to steer clear of homemade ones & ones that are served in pubs and restaurants, as those would generally be made from scratch on site with raw eggs.

    Thanks ladies, it hadn't occurred to me that they are pasteurised. What about whole egg mayo purchased in a jar in the supermarket aisle?

    That should be fine. If it's in a jar & can be kept at room temperature (until it's opened of course 😊) then it most likely contains pasteurised egg. If it's freshly made & needs to stay refrigerated at all times (like the ones in the produce section that a pp mentioned) then it's probably not safe.
