should liver transplant patients eat unfiltered food or drink. i.e.. honey, apple cider vinegar?

Infection Risk: Due to the need for immunosuppression, transplant recipients are at increased risk of foodborne infections. Though bacteria cannot survive in honey, yeast can, so a transplant recipient should only consume honey from a trusted source with no particulate matter in it. Apple cider vinegar could also be contaminated with bacteria or yeast and may interact with other medications.
