What is ghee?

Our organic ghee is made using grass-fed non-homogenized whole cow's milk. We don't add salt, preservatives, trans fats, dyes, colors, or anything else to our ghee. The only ingredient in our ghee is non-homogenized milk.

Grass-fed organic ghee offers all the wonderful flavors of butter, but with the shelf life of cooking oils. Ghee is gluten-free and provides healthy fats, a variety of practical cooking applications, and the buttery taste you love on your favorite foods.

 

Ghee is highly potent so a little bit goes a long way, making it last longer than an equivalent quantity of butter. Bake, fry, saute, and change your diet for the better today with organic Indian ghee from Pure Indian Foods!

Why is my ghee liquidy or grainy?

Ghee is primarily used as a cooking fat, or on top of warm foods and drinks. So no matter what the texture is, it melts into clear golden liquid in few seconds when heated. We can't guarantee a particular texture once the jar arrives. To do so, we would have to over-process the product and add fillers/stabilizers etc. and we can't, as we want to keep the product absolutely clean and all of our ghee is made traditionally, just as it has been for thousands of years in India.

Why Grass-Fed Matters

More Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)
Pasture-grazed cows have more CLA in their milk than grain fed cows and our lab tests show our ghee has more CLA than plain butter. CLA is an essential fatty acid that has been getting a lot of attention lately.

Ratio of Omega-6 and Omega-3 Fats
Research indicates that if the ratio of Omega-6/Omega-3 in your food exceeds 4:1 then it may not be good for you. This ratio is around 3:1 for grass-fed animals and over 20:1 for grain-fed animals, since grass is rich in Omega-3 and grains have higher Omega-6. Eating more grass-fed products helps you maintain the right balance of Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids.

Are Grass-fed Products Safer?
Most of the conventional cows are fed large amounts of grains (primarily corn), soy and other supplements to increase milk production and decrease cost. They are kept in crowded feedlots and don’t get the opportunity to roam freely and peacefully in the sun and eat high-fiber green grass. This makes them vulnerable to various diseases, so they are often given antibiotics in their daily feed to prevent this.

Environmentally Sustainable
Grass-fed dairies are generally small. They promote harmony between the land and the animals. They support biodiversity and reduce waste. They work in a sustainable manner and are good for our environment.

4.

Milk proteins are filtered out.
