Our grass fed organic ghee starts by making butter from grass fed cow's milk. We then render the butter into ghee. We don't add salt, preservatives, trans fats, dyes, colors, or anything else to our ghee. The only ingredient in our ghee is non-homogenized milk.
Grass fed organic ghee offers all the wonderful flavors of butter, but with the shelf life of cooking oils. Ghee is gluten-free and provides healthy fats, a variety of practical cooking applications, and the buttery taste you love on your favorite foods. Ghee is highly potent so a little bit goes a long way, making it last longer than an equivalent quantity of butter. Bake, fry, saute, and change your diet for the better today with the best organic Indian ghee from Pure Indian Foods!

Ghee is the perfect cooking fat to use anywhere you would use butter or oil. It is shelf-stable and excellent for sauteing, stir fries, baking, and other high heat applications.

Why is my ghee liquidy or grainy?
Ghee is primarily used as a cooking fat, or on top of warm foods and drinks. So no matter what the texture is, it melts into clear golden liquid in few seconds when heated. We can't promise a particular texture once the jar arrives. To do so, we would have to over-process the product and add fillers/stabilizers etc. and we can't, as we want to keep the product absolutely clean and all of our ghee is made traditionally, just as it has been for thousands of years in India.
How is ghee made?
Ghee is prepared by melting and simmering butter until all the water evaporates and the milk solids settle at the bottom. The remaining butter oil is very stable, giving it a high smoke point which makes it an excellent choice to use for frying and sautéing and it can be stored without refrigeration for up to a year.
Is ghee dairy?
Many people can’t tolerate dairy, but they are able to consume ghee. Casein and lactose are removed during the making of ghee. Unless a person is very sensitive, consuming ghee is safe for those with dairy issues, unlike butter.
Grass-fed cows produce milk that is high in naturally occurring Vitamins A, D & K, as well as conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), an antioxidant and essential fatty acid. In addition, grassfed ghee contains a balanced ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fats. (This ratio is around 3:1 for grass-fed animals compared to over 20:1 for grain-fed animals!)
Conversely, grain-fed cows produce unhealthy fats you wouldn’t want in your body. Most cows are corn or soy fed. It’s cheap and filling, but indigestible for cows.
Pure Indian Foods was the first ghee company to become Whole30(R) Approved back in 2011. Pure Indian Foods carries certified organic ghees, spices, and cold-pressed oils that are all Whole30(R) Approved.

100% Organic Butter
Ghee has a high smoke point (485 degrees F) and it won't burn like butter. Use in place of oil or butter in your cooking. Perfect for sautés, stir-fries and sauces. Delicious on rice, pancakes, scones or biscuits, and it makes the best popcorn ever!

1) I read about how East Africans use this in their hair before shampooing and conditioning it, so I originally purchased it to use as a pre-oil for a deep conditioning treatment. It never made it to my hair, because....
2) I decided to cook with it and I was amazed with the flavor! It tastes so good!
3) It browns your food with perfection.
4) This product isn't devoid of just lactose - read the ingredients and learn about other things that can make you sick from eating dairy products.
This product is advertised as having a "grainy texture" - It does not have a grainy texture, it is very smooth and does not have a grassy-flavor (if that is what they meant by it) - It just works well as a stir-fry oil and adds a creamy texture to chicken dishes and vegetables that have been cooked in it, or steamed first and sauteed afterwards.
It is organic from grass-fed bovines.
Rich in nutrients.
High heat tolerance. (I tried it at 400 and there was no loss of taste, texture, or burning)
Making a blend of spices (your choice) and mixing it with the Ghee for an hour will result in a tasty basting sauce.
My favorite are eggs: Scrambled, Omelettes, fried eggs .... absolutely delicious! smooth texture and truly better than using butter to make the omelettes. Less of a sputtering making fried eggs - probably due to the lack of water content on the Ghee - Just make sure that the eggs are at room temperature for better results when frying.
The price is pretty steep for such a small jar.
For those expecting a buttery taste on their popcorn, this is not going to fly.
We used organic kernels (Found on Amazon) and a hot air popper.
We also used the aforementioned kernels in a whirley-pop.
We used the Ghee to mix in the popped hot air kernels ---- There is no buttery flavor.
We used the Ghee in the Whirley Popper to pop the kernels --- There is no buttery flavor. Adding more of the Ghee to the popped kernels only resulted in moist and oily popcorn but did not enhance the flavor.
Having stated the above, I will say that the next batch of Whirley popped corn will be made with Ghee because it can easily tolerate the high heat and nothing in the popper burned.
For added flavor we will use spices or commercially available popcorn flavor shakers easily found at local grocery stores (Molly McButter and Kernel Season's are common) or will make our own from organic herbs and spices.
Making your own Ghee from organic butter is simple enough, finding organic butter that won't break the bank is harder to find.
In conclusion, we really like the smooth texture of this Ghee brand and its high-heat tolerance properties. Not having to over think the GMO, preservatives, and chemical compositions of the product is priceless. We will continue to use it in addition to Organic coconut oil (which works well with popcorn too since it too, has a high burn point), Organic Olive Oil, Organic Macademia Nut oil (also found easily on Amazon) and Avocado Oil (which is flavorless and lends itself well to seasonings that won't compete for attention)
Every oil has its place in our pantry for variety in flavors and different types of meals.

I didn't care for them discussing how the ghee is made on auspicious days, it was too superstitious for me. However, I looked past that and looked directly to the quality of the product. I've never had problems with this product and I've been using it for 10+ years. I also occasionally get some from a farmer, but his seems to still have some milk protein in it, because it causes problems for someone I know who is allergic to dairy.
If you are allergic to dairy, you might be able to tolerate this. In general, the fats do not contain the allergen, which would be in the protein. The person I know who is allergic to dairy (a severe allergy) can tolerate this product with no problems at all. This allows us to bake and prepare butter-containing foods with no problems. I'm happy to have this product available.
