Grass fed cow ghee: check these factors before you purchase from grocery shop
The benefits of grass fed cow ghee are well known now and people are taking active interest in using quality cow ghee in their daily diet. As a result, lots of fake and compromised quality products have been mushroomed around, which are not only meaningless for purchase, at times also they can be dangerous to health and well being. Therefore it is important to learn the clues to identify pure ghee.
Read the label
You need to read the label carefully. Information about the purity of cow ghee can be traced from the label itself. You should check points like
- Where the cow ghee is produced
- If the ghee is produced from 100% grass fed cow milk
- If the cow ghee is free from chemical preservative, or artificial color and flavor
- Check the ingredients.
It is rightly said that Ghee has feel-good quality, which means that you will sense t least some good feeling while sniffing the product. Check the tester before buying a bottled ghee if
- It emancipates a rich, nutty and sweet aroma
- It is of ivory golden color
- It is creamy but it has a little grainy texture
Once you find the cow ghee you have selected offers all these three qualities, you can be sure about its superior quality. Only Grass cow ghee can offer you all these three benefits.
Check the packaging
Check the air tight containers. Good quality cow ghee is shelf stable but it is mostly packed in tetra packets. Buy products which are strictly sealed, leak proof, and printed with all relevant information including manufacturing date and expiry date.
Always check the storage instruction of the ghee you will be purchasing. If you are asked to store the ghee in refrigerator, you may straightaway assume that it is not a pure ghee because good quality cow ghee is shelf-stable.
For example, Milkio grass-fed Cow ghee stays up to 18 months from its manufacturing date under proper storage condition. Before buying grass-fed cow ghee you should always check its storage instruction. Usually cow ghee should be stored at room temperature in a cool, dark place away from direct exposure to heat and light.
Take adulteration of cow ghee at home
There is a simple test to check the purity of the ghee you have purchased. You need to heat one spoon ghee in a small pot. If it smells quickly and converts in dark brown color, be assured that it is pure. If the ghee takes time melt and looks like oil, then you may assume that it has adulteration.
