Some would disagree, but you should always choose pasteurized dairy. The pasteurization process ensures that the dairy product doesn’t have any more harmful microorganisms. In other words, pasteurized dairy products don’t contain parasites and bacteria such as Cryptosporidium, Brucella, E. coli, Campylobacter, Salmonella, and Listeria.
Why on earth do you think that the sale of unpasteurized milk products is illegal in 20 U.S. states? Because unpasteurized milk is 200 times more likely to cause a sort of food poisoning than pasteurized one. So, if you don’t want to end hospitalized, it’s best to purchase only pasteurized products.
