Does ghee need to be refrigerated?
Refrigeration of ghee is optional.
Ghee is composed almost entirely of fat, with water and milk solids removed, therefore it doesn’t require any refrigeration. It can be stored at room temperature in a cool, dark place away from direct heat and light. However, in warmer temperatures pure ghee can melt and become liquid, you can refrigerate it to keep it in a solid state.
What is the shelf life of ghee?
Once opened it usually has a shelf life of around 12 months.
Why does ghee appear separated?
It is only some melted ghee separating on top from warm temperature. This does not affect the quality. You can either just stir it or place it in the fridge to solidify again.
What consistency is ghee supposed to be?
It is perfectly normal for ghee to be liquid, solid or a combination of both. It depends on the storage temperature. Ghee is similar to coconut oil in the sense that it melts when it is above 20 degrees C. This is totally normal and does not compromise the quality of the ghee. Pure Ghee butter will return to a semi-solid consistency when it returns to below 20 degrees C.
Why does Fushi’s ghee have a grainy texture?
It is completely natural for ghee to have a grainy texture. Ghee is melted over a low temperature before hand pouring it into jars, which then are placed in the fridge to solidify. This sudden change of temperatures creates a grainy texture.
Is ghee a dairy product?
Ghee is classed as a dairy product as it is made from milk. However most people who do not tolerate dairy, find that they can safely consume ghee.
Does organic grass fed butter contain casein and lactose?
Most of the lactose and casein is removed during the manufacturing process, however it is possible that tiny amounts may still remain. Therefore individuals who are incredibly sensitive may react when eating ghee and should probably avoid it.
How much ghee can I eat?
It is very individual. You can substitute ghee for most other fats you use in the kitchen. For individual fat intake requirements we suggest to consult a nutritionist or search online for ghee nutrition.
Is Fushi’s ghee cultured or fermented in any way?
Our ghee is not cultured or fermented.
