Store in a cool, dry and dark place. Use a clean and dry spoon to take ghee out of the jar. Use within 3 months after opening or refrigerate until the Best By date. As with any natural product, color and texture may vary.
Q. Do I need to refrigerate the ghee?
A. A well-prepared ghee has very little moisture content and it is shelf-stable. You do not need to refrigerate it for 2-3 months if you keep it in an airtight container. This makes it suitable to carry while traveling or camping. When kept in refrigerator, ghee can last up to a year. Ghee will harden in the refrigerator and it will become softer again when you leave it for some time at the room temperature. It is best to protect ghee from light, air and moisture.
Q. If I intend to consume my ghee within 2 months then what is the best place to store it?
A. In this situation, it is best to store the ghee jar in your kitchen cabinet (away from the light).
Q. How do I handle the opened jar?
A. Use a clean and dry spoon. Close the lid as soon as possible. Do not let any moisture get into your ghee jar. It can promote bacteria and spoil the ghee.
Q. I noticed that the texture is grainy rather than smooth. Is this a problem?
A. The conventional store-bought ghee has a very uniform, smooth, highly consistent texture, almost like butter. However, a well-prepared ghee should have a grainy, lumpy texture. This lovely grainy texture is a quality of our ghee and is not at all a problem. Here is our tagline for a grainy ghee: No grains to get grains We believe the quality of butter is the most important factor to get a grainy texture. A 100% grass-fed butter yields good grains. A low heating temperature and careful process of making are also important.
Q. Can I use the ghee after the "expiration" date?
A. Ghee has a sweet flavor. An unopened jar can be safely used after the "Best Used By" date as long as there is no noticeable change in the flavor. Aged ghee is considered to have healing properties. Some families in India have ghee which is over 100-year old. Such an old ghee is rare and is very expensive.
Q. Is ghee considered dairy?
A. Yes, ghee is made from milk and hence it is a dairy-product. However, people who have dairy intolerance can generally consume ghee since ghee does not have casein (a type of milk protein) and lactose (milk sugar) which some people find difficult to digest.
Q. Is your ghee certified kosher?
A. Our ghee is not certified kosher though consideration for kosher certification is possible in the future. Please note that butter is the only ingredient in our ghee and it is certified organic and certified kosher butter. It is prepared in a clean commercial facility with all the required licenses.
Q. Do you use salted or unsalted butter for preparing ghee?
A. We only use unsalted butter.
Q. Should ghee be hard or runny?
A. Ghee contains both hard and runny parts at room temperature. It becomes completely solid when you refrigerate it. If you like to use ghee as a spread then it may be a good idea to keep some in the refrigerator for this purpose.
