Organic Ghee or clarified butter has been recognised and highly valued by Ayurveda, the ancient medical science of India. Placed at the top of the oily foods list, Ghee is considered to be an essential part of a balanced diet. According to tradition it not only benefits the internal health of the body but also softens, strengthens and nourishes the skin.
Ghee has immense healing benefits as it contains a balance of easy to digest fatty acids essential for healthy nerves and cells. Known for it anti-inflammatory properties, it is also rich with antioxidants and acts as an aid in the absorption of vitamins and minerals from other foods. Ghee has a high smoke point and therefore does not produce damaging free radicals.
Fushi's authentic Organic Ghee is traditionally churned and made with great care at a local 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. While 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, fushi's 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 colouring's.
