Ghee Buyer's Guide
The purpose of this guide is to help you decide how much ghee you should purchase to get the best deal. There are 4 main factors to consider when purchasing your ghee. The ghee's shelf life, jar size and usage are important to figure to maximize savings, nutrition and taste. Once you figure how much you will need you can figure how best to purchase your ghee figuring in multiple jar purchases and shipping. We offer discounts for multiple jar purchases which can help you keep to your budget as shipping multiple jars together can offer significant savings over shipping each separately.
Please note that our Cultured Ghee is available only 14 oz size at this time. Also, the prices indicated in this article are not applicable to Cultured Ghee.
Shelf Life: This information applies to all of our ghee products, which includes ghee, cultured ghee, coconut ghee, spiced ghee, and Coffee++. The shelf life of unopened jar is one year, with or without refrigeration. The shelf life of opened jar is 3 months without refrigeration and one year in the fridge. Even though you could keep it for several years, ghee doesn't stay completely fresh much longer than one year without the use of preservatives. We don’t use any preservatives in our ghee. In fact, the one and only ingredient in our ghee is milk, with absolutely nothing else added to it.
