PESTO FAQ's

Is it safe for me to eat Pesto if I am pregnant?

When you buy premium Pesto such as Sacla’ Pesto, it’s completely safe to eat during pregnancy. The main ingredients in our Classic Basil Pesto are basil, garlic, pine nuts, oil, salt and hard Italian cheese. Whilst unpasteurised cheese is not recommended during pregnancy, cheese used in Sacla’ Pesto is pasteurised, making it safe to eat even while pregnant.

Is Pesto pasteurised?

Once the carefully selected, high-quality ingredients in Sacla’ Pesto have been expertly combined in the correct proportions; the mixture is dispensed into jars. These jars are then vacuum sealed for a perfect airtight seal, before being pasteurised for your protection using a mild heat treatment.

Does Pesto freeze well?

Sacla’ Pesto can be stored in a home freezer for up to one month without any noticeable loss of flavour. Pesto can be frozen for longer (up to 6 months) but will lose some flavour in this time. When used in a sauce or marinade for example, this will hardly be noticeable.

How long does Pesto keep in the fridge?

As Pesto is pasteurised, there is no need to store unopened jars of Sacla’ Pesto in the fridge. Simply use them before their ‘Best Before’ date. Opened jars should be kept in the fridge, and can be used safely for up to 2 weeks without risk or noticeable loss of flavour.
