Storage Instruction

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.

Usually cow ghee should be stored at room temperature in a cool, dark place away from direct exposure to heat and light.
