Organic Ghee (clarified butter) has been highly valued by Ayurveda, the ancient medical science of India. Placed at the top of the oily foods list, Ghee is thought to be an essential part of a balanced diet. According to tradition it it is good for internal health and also softens, strengthens and nourishes the skin.
Ghee contains a balance of easy to digest fatty acids which support healthy nerves and cells. Known for it anti-inflammatory properties, it is also rich with antioxidants and assists the absorption of vitamins and minerals from other foods.
Ghee has a high smoke point and therefore does not produce damaging free radicals.
Fushi Organic Ghee is traditionally churned and made with great care on a farm in the Cotswold Hills of South West of England. It is made with artisan butter and cream produced fresh daily from free range “grass fed cows” for most of the year between March and November. In harsher weather between December to February the cows are fed organic feed.
Organic certified by the Soil Association and produced only in small batches from quality English butter, organic Ghee is “cooked” slowly for 6 – 8 hours to rid it of any impurities. This results in a pure ghee with a lovely fragrance and colour. There are no added flavourings, preservative or colourings.
Organic Butter Ghee has a rich, sweet nutty flavour and is a premium cooking oil due to its high flash point (251 °C/485 °F). Ghee benefits from being an essential ingredient for authentic Indian dishes (also known as ayurvedic ghee). Also suitable for vegetarians. Ghee is composed almost entirely of good saturated fats. It has a long shelve life compared to normal butter as it is a clarified butter.
Ghee has a wide range of uses:
• Use organic ghee butter as a cooking oil for sautéing or frying.
• Use Ghee in any place where you would use oil or butter.
• Our grass fed ghee is lactose free due to the process of creating clarified butter.

• Ghee benefits from having a high smoke point so it is ideal cooking oil for frying.

• Ghee is very versatile because it tastes delicious on its own and is a healthy cooking oil at the same time.
