Are cottage cheese and premixed dips (like french onion chip dip) pasturized?
I’m immune system suppressed due to transplant. Been told by transplant coordinator that unpasturized dairy products can be deadly to me because of potential bacteria(s) that I can no longer fight, but that most health (non-immunosuppressed) persons can. Also need protein intake and want dairy for variety. I buy dairy products in a national chain food market. Every package of cottage cheese and premixed dip says made from pasturized milk products, BUT it does not say the mixture is pasturized. Friend runs a restaurant (Illinois) and they can not serve meals that contain any non-pasturized dairy products. So is this much to do about nothing. I want to be “for sure” defensive. Thanks in advance Jellies.
