Refrigerate ghee? Is it necessary for the extended shelf-life and preservation?

Refrigerate ghee may not sound like a usual idea. Have you ever practiced it? If your response is no, you are right in your ghee management. Ghee does not need to be held in the refrigerator. It is a storage-friendly dairy product regardless it is milk-made, and milk gets quickly perishes.

By default, ghee offers a longer shelf life and is a shelf-stable commodity. You don’t need a fridge’s help to store ghee if you keep it in an airtight container in your kitchen. But you should know a few storage requisites to store ghee for longer.

Only pure ghee can be stored without refrigeration support

Cow ghee or sheep ghee that is pure and unadulterated does not need to be refrigerated. You should refrigerate ghee after 12 months if you want to ensure the consistency of the ghee once the pack is opened.

Although ghee is made from milk, it is not as perishable as other dairy products because, during the ghee-making process, perishable milk elements get removed from milk butter.

However, moisture and milk proteins are removed from ghee during the slow cooking process, and dairy butter transforms into clarified butter, which is then boiled milk’s oil and fat content. Ghee has a long shelf life due to its fatty fat quality.

If we don’t refrigerate ghee, how should we keep it?
  • Ghee from grass-fed cows should be kept in an airtight jar. Alternatively, you may use a ghee jar made of dark glass with a tight lid. Keep the lid on the container to keep it out of direct exposure to sunlight. 
  • Use a dry and clean spoon to remove the ghee from the jar. Alternatively, you might put a small amount of cow ghee in a small jar. This is the most effective method for preserving the consistency and texture of bottled cow ghee.
  • It will spoil ghee health if you even refrigerate ghee and allow moisture to intrude in the ghee bottle. 
  • When using the ghee, do not use a wet spoon. Moisture intrusion is harmful to ghee’s consistency, and it can spoil the aroma and consistency of the product. 
  • Unwanted moisture can ruin the whole portion of cow ghee, and the ghee may turn rancid. Whether you refrigerate ghee or not, using a dry spoon is healthy for ghee storage for long.
  • If you have bought a larger quantity of cow ghee, it is still safe to use ghee from a small container when required. To store ghee for everyday use, you can use airtight glass containers or steel pots instead of plastic containers.
  • You do not need to refrigerate ghee as you can keep these containers at room temperature. However, you have to use grass-fed ghee only. 

Why Grass-fed ghee?

If we consult the research result on grass-fed dairy benefits, we can find that grass-fed products are superior in quality and nutritional potency. In a grass-fed dairy system, dairy cattle are fed with green grass and grass-based fodders, making grass-fed cow milk more enriched with beta Carotene, CLA, butyrate, etc.

You can purchase Milkio’s cow ghee that will stay fresh in your kitchen for 12 months from the manufacturing date.
