'Grass-Fed Ghee Oil', Indians Fuming On Twitter

Darpan News Desk IANS, 26 Feb, 2019

    Good old ghee needs no introduction. The clarified butter, which originated in India, is used liberally around the country in everything from food to traditional medicines.

     

    So when a Los Angeles-based company discovered this "superfood" and repackaged it into "grass-fed ghee oil", outrage against them wasn't all that surprising. A tweet going viral, which shows a pic of Fourth & Heart's ghee oil bottle, has gone viral online and collected a lot of backlash.

     

    "This is what they have done to our ghee," wrote the Twitter user who posted the pic.

     

    According to Fourth & Heart's website, their ghee oil combines the "great taste of ghee with the high smoke point of grapeseed oil", making it "ideal for everything from sauteeing and baking to frying and scrambling." To Indians who have actually used the product, however, it seemed nothing short of a travesty.

     

    "I used this stupid ghee oil thing for 2 years thinking it was actual ghee. I realised last month only that it was just some random oils mixed together that somehow gave the ghee like texture," wrote one angry Twitter user.

     
     

    Lending her voice to the popular anti-ghee oil movement was actress Swara Bhaskar, who denounced it in no uncertain terms while labelling herself a "Ghee Nationalist".
