Cheesecake during pregnancy: Recommended or not

The answer is both yes and no. Cheesecake contains raw eggs which are not recommended for pregnant women. In addition, if the cheesecake is uncooked and is made from soft cheese which has not been pasteurized, it is quite unsafe for consuming.

It is unsafe to consume a cheesecake which is made from raw or unpasteurized egg. It is also not recommended to consume an uncooked cheesecake which has been made from unpasteurized soft cheese.

However, it is easy and recommended to eat a cheesecake which has been cooked with an egg or eat a cheesecake which does not contain egg or cheese made from pasteurized milk.

The reason why cheesecake made from raw egg should be avoided is because there may be a risk of contracting Salmonella. If you are pregnant and unsure, it is recommended to look out on the packing or ask the staff regarding the contents of the cheesecake.
