Bisquick & Pregnancy....

I ate at my sisters and she made pancakes using that shake n' pour bisquick mix, I'm wondering if that's safe during pregnancy... it has milk, eggs and stuff in it and you just add water... do you think it's all pasteurized? Plus it said it expires Oct 09 how could the mix possibly last that long?

  • I'm sure it's all pasteurized and it lasts that long b/c of the preservatives and dry ingredients.

  • why wouldn't it be safe?

    things like milk and juice get pasteurized which you add the milk, as long as it's from the grocery store and not straight from the cow, it's pasteurized.

    it has preservatives in it that make it last, also it's in a sealed container until you open it so no bacteria is getting in to spoil it.

  • hmm...just a thought...do you eat chips? if so, chips are sooo bad for any of us, but we still eat those..now compare that to pancakes and think which is the bad one. my point is, if you eat stuff like chips and candy that Is bad, why look at pancakes like its poison. go to any preggo site and look up foods you can eat...there isnt alot out there we cant. but all the preggo sites are gonna give you the super healthy foods..talk with your dr.
