Are You Eating Pure Desi Ghee?

Have you ever thought the ghee you are using in your diet is pure or not?

A lot of ghee manufacturers in the market replace or mix pure ghee with Vanaspati oil which is very cheap. Few manufacturers mix vegetable oils and other greasy elements in ghee to reduce the price of ghee and hence sell ghee at cheaper prices.

How to Check Purity of A2 Desi Ghee?

Method 1: Put the Ghee on your palm

Place spoonful ghee on your palm. If the ghee starts to melt itself, it is pure since pure ghee melts at body temperature.

Method 2: Check the Colour of Ghee

Take a pan and put it on the medium flame and iet it heat for a while. Now put a spoonful of ghee and if it melts within a few seconds and appears dark brownish in colour, it is pure ghee. If it takes long to melt and is light yellow in colour, it is impure.

Method 3: Scientific Method of Checking Ghee

Take a small amount of melted ghee in a test tube. Add a pinch of sugar and concentrated hydrochloric acid to it. Shake it well and wait for five minutes. If the lower acid layer turns crimson in colour, it shows the presence of vanaspati oil in ghee. But if there is no change in the colour of mixture, it means there is no adulteration.

Using these simple tests at home, you can easily find if the ghee you are using is pure or adulterated.
