<p>Cheese is one of the foods that are generally recommended during pregnancy because it contains important minerals and nutrients. It is also rich in proteins and calcium and supports the bone formation of your unborn baby. However, you should avoid some types of cheese during pregnancy, as they are contaminated with germs and could cause an infection in you. What about the delicious feta cheese that tastes so great with salads?</p>
<h2>What is herder's cheese and how is it made?</h2>
<p>To make herder's cheese, coagulated cow's milk is pressed and then layered with lots of salt and whey. During the maturing period in the brine, the cheese loses liquid, so that it becomes firmer and belongs to the group of semi-hard cheeses.</p>

<p>You can eat herder's cheese, which you can buy packaged in the supermarket, during pregnancy as long as there is no indication that it was made from raw milk. On the other hand, you should avoid herder's cheese, which you can buy at the deli counter, as you don't know how long the cheese has been there and any pathogens may have accumulated. You should also avoid herder's cheese in restaurants, firstly because they often use fresh products made from raw milk and secondly because you don't know where the products come from and how they were stored.</p>
<h2>Tips for herder's cheese in of pregnancy</h2>
<p>Although herder's cheese is always made from pasteurized milk, you should have consumed it within two to three days, as there is still a risk of infection with listeriosis bacteria if the herder's cheese has been left open in the fridge for too long.</p>
<h2> Difference between herder's cheese and feta cheese</h2>
<p>These cheeses are both made in the same way – curdled milk is pressed and then layered with lots of salt and whey. The cheese then matures in brine, which is why it is also called brine cheese. As written above, herder's cheese is made from cow's milk, while feta is a protected term for cheese made only from sheep's or goat's milk and comes from Greece.</p>
<h2>Other cheeses besides herder's cheese when pregnant</h2>
<p>In addition to shepherd's cheese, there are numerous other types of cheese that are divided into different categories. Depending on the type, you should find out beforehand whether they should be avoided during pregnancy or whether you can consume them without hesitation.
