Grass fed ghee: nitty-gritty of long term storage

Grass fed ghee: nitty-gritty of long term storage

Grass fed ghee is already known as a healthy kitchen staple and it can be used in many cooking processes like baking, deep frying, sautéing, etc.

Ghee can be used in morning tea or coffee and can be used for beauty massage for your glowing skin or healthy hair maintenance. So it make sense that while buying ghee, you can purchase the product in a moderate bulk quantity.

Now the next probable question that surfaces out is how to store the ghee you have purchased in its best condition for long term use. 

Check the manufacturing date printed on the jar

Good quality grass fed ghee is shelf stable and can be stored up to 12 months from the date of manufacturing: therefore if you are planning to store the purchased ghee for long, you should check the manufacturing date always prefer to buy the product from the latest batch available on the store.  This is the best way to get maximum time span to use the product.

However, this long shelf life is available from good quality ghee only. Check the expiry date before you purchase grass fed ghee from the departmental store. 

Check the container at the time of purchase

Ghee should be stored in airtight container. If you want to extend the shelf life of this kitchen hero, you must prefer stainless steel made containers or glass made containers for storing ghee. Plastic containers are good for ghee storage if you can place the container in fridge.

Always be double sure about the aridness of the container in which you wish to store your grass fed ghee. The lid must be airtight to keep its lusciousness at par.

Store it in dark colored glass container

Besides manufacturer’s recommendation, your storage arrangement plays a vital part for long shelf life of the ghee you have purchased.  Good quality grass fed ghee does not require the support of refrigeration. You can store the product in a dark colored glass jar.

In comparison to plastic jar, airtight glass jar is a better option for its long term storage.

Keep it away from the sunlight

Grass fed ghee is highly photo sensitive. If ghee gets exposed to direct sunlight, it may get deteriorated by quality. 

If you want to keep your ghee shelf stable for long, you should preserve it in a dark place away from sunlight or direct exposure to glaring light.

Store it in dry shelf, away from moisturizer

Similar to light sensitivity, moisturizer is not good for grass fed ghee’s stable quality. You should keep ghee jar away from humidity. Damp environment can shorten the longevity of ghee, however, over exposure to humid environment is not friendly for ghee either. 

Storing grass fed ghee in a dark dry corner in kitchen closet can help in extending its shelf life.

Always use dry spoon to take out ghee

As external moisture is harmful for ghee’s shelf life, humid teaspoon or human finger touch is extremely harmful for ghee’s shelf life. You must not drown your finger in ghee jar in order to keep the quality intact. 

Alternatively, you should use always dry spoon, preferably made of wood for taking out ghee out of the jar.

These are the basic requirements of storing cow ghee for longer time. Only pore grass fed ghee will offer you extended shelf life like Milkio grass fed ghee from New Zealand offers 12 month shelf life of its ghee from the date of its manufacturing.

Therefore it is important to read all storage instructions and its shelf life details before you buy traditional Cow ghee for long terms storage (up to 12 months) in your kitchen.
