So i bought the Tesco's finest brand and it was gorgeous. I know the deal is - stay away from soft cheeses but some people argue that feta is ok!!!!!
Are we allowed to eat it or not? I bought the Tesco Finest Greek feta cheese last night after months of longing for it. I had a little bit with my tea. When scouring the shelves though I was reading the backs of all the different brands to see if they were pasteurised or not and non of them said otherwise.
Its yummy thats the deal with feta.
Check the packaging for pasteurized, if its pasteurized its ok (its not live and doesnt have a skin either). If the packaging doesnt say pasteurized then hunt down another brand. By law I believe it has to say its pasteurized if it is.
Id stay away from it for awhile as its a soft cheese with a high salt content.
I've eaten feta cheese plenty of times that I got in the supermarket and never checked if it was pasturised. I don't feel that eating feta is going to do any harm but each to their own
If you are concerned it will say on the back of the packet so just do a quick check around when buying it next time
