InformationBéchamel is a mixture of butter, flour and milk that can be used to prepare various dishes, including sauces. It is generally considered to be sure to consume during pregnancy, provided you respect certain precautions.
First of all, make sure that the béchamel that you prepare or buy is made with pasteurized or ultra-pasture milk. Pasteurized and ultra-pasteurized dairy products are safer during pregnancy because they are heated to a high enough temperature to kill harmful bacteria.
In addition, make sure that the Béchamel is warmed up to a sufficiently high temperature and immediately consumed. Bacteria and microorganisms can multiply quickly at temperatures between 4 and 63 ° C. Therefore, if the Béchamel is left at room temperature for more than two hours, it can become dangerous for consumption.
Finally, make sure that the butter used to prepare the sauce is at room temperature and not out of the refrigerator. Cold butter can be more difficult to mix and can leave shapeless pieces in the sauce, which is not ideal.
In conclusion, if you take the necessary precautions for the preparation and consumption of Béchamel, it is considered to be sure to consume during pregnancy.
