    Default Quick question

    Can you eat dips whilst pregnant?? Namely the creamy cheese based ones, like avocado or spicy capsicum? Just hoed into a tub of avo dip before suddenly remembering it may be a listeria risk. Google gives me mixed replies!
    TIA. I really, really love my dip and biccies 😞

    I always did but avoided the ones with egg (like the olive one).

    I think its ok. As long as its not a soft cheese one (ie feta) should be good. I think.

    Listeria can't grow in an acidic environment. So anything with added vinegar should be fine.

    I downloaded an in-depth 20 page document from nsw food authority recently but can't remember what it said about cream cheese, as I don't eat it anyway, might be worth googling the doc if you like those cream cheese dips.

    I would not eat dips that had been opened a few days ago regardless. And don't double dip! Spoon a small serving into a container so as to not contaminate the remaining contents with bacteria etc.

    I stick to hommus, home-made guacamole and those cashew-Parmesan based dips.

    Yes, if it's store bought ones I wouldn't hesitate, but I wouldn't eat them after being opened for more than three days.

    Cream cheese is fine to eat whilst pregnant. I googled that when I was pregnant because I didn't want to give up cheesecake!!
