    Default Pregnancy food question

    So I've been really feeling like some Grill'd herbed Mayo. I have found out that the eggs are pasturised but the Mayo isn't. That was what they told me. So in my mind this makes it safe because it's the eggs that are a problem in Mayo but just thought I'd get others opinions

    Default Pregnancy food question

    is the mayo made from raw egg? if so, I wouldn't risk it. a lot of these fast food chains don't make their own mayo from raw egg and just use the premade stuff from the jar. it's good that you checked. I don't know how raw egg can be pasteurized because the pasteurization process involves heating at high temps, which would cook the egg, thereby rendering it unusable for mayo. if it were me, I'd probably just get another sauce on my burger

    Thank you for your response, I'm wondering if maybe the egg is powdered or something (I've got no idea?!) but definitely can't see them making the Mayo up fresh in store. Hmmmm.. How annoying!

    yup! welcome to pregnancy! navigating the murky waters of dining out safely was easily the most annoying aspect I found!! I'd just go without rather than risk it then drive myself mad with worry.

    I think it's very unlikely that a high volume chain restaurant like Grilld would serve raw egg mayo. Mostly that's something served at a proper restaurant that is likely to specify it's home-made. So I'd say it's probably fine, I've definitely had their mayo since being pregnant, didn't even consider it would be an issue!

    But at the end of the day it's your decision what you feel comfortable eating. I've been annoyed with anyone who mocks me for not wanting to eat something. So just go with what feels right to you.

    Big chains and where the buy things in in big tubs (rather than have a chef prepare), i always assume to be safe. If it comes pre-prepared or bought in, I consider it safe, but you need to be happy with whatever point you draw a line at. If it stops you from enjoying the burger then it's not worth it

    Is mayo bought in a squeeze tube from supermarket ok? Or can they have raw egg in them too? How do you know if the pre bought ones have raw egg?

    Shop bought/commercially made mayo is fine - they've been heat treated so any nasties have been killed off. If you buy it off the shelf it will be fine. I doubt you'd get fresh Mayo in the supermarket anyway as I don't think it would last long enough.

    Basically I drew the line that Mayo in a jar/tub from a shop was ok to eat, including chains where they would likely buy it pre-made in tubs. Any "home-made" or "house-made" Mayo I avoid.
    Some people avoid any Mayo that says whole egg in the label, but seriously I can't be bothered.
