I love ice cream, although while I’ve been pregnant I have not been eating it much since for whatever reason all I want to eat is citrus and cereals. Anyway. I have a thing of Slow Churned Edy’s/Dreyer’s (depending on your coast) ice cream in my freezer calling my name, but the ingredient list just says “non-fat milk” and does not say anything about being pasteurized. I read somewhere that dairy sold by big companies in grocery stores has to be pasteurized (except for certain cheeses), but I am also nervous to eat it without it saying that explicitly on the label.

If it’s made in American, it’s pasteurized.

I think it’s safe to assume any commerical ice cream in the US is pasteurized, unless it’s specifically labelled otherwise.

I didn’t think pasteurization was the concern with ice cream which is why hard or store bought ice creams are fine, only soft serve needs to be avoided because of the machinery growing bacteria/not being cleaned properly.
Anyhow, as others have said most if not all products in north america are pasteurized if you’re really worried.

It’s definitely pasteurized. It’s the soft serve machinery that has an increased risk of listeria that gives ice cream a bad rap. Hard ice cream in a tub is perfectly fine.
