Expiration Date:Expiration Date
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Thank you for choosing our ghee! Ghee is one of the most sacred and healing food described in the ancient Ayurveda texts. It is made by a simple process of gently simmering butter to remove potential allergens such as casein and lactose. What remains is the pure delicious butter oil, described as promoting good health. Our ghee is made from milk obtained from spring thru fall, when the cows are out to pasture eating rapidly growing fresh green grass. Our ghee never contains any artificial ingredients or harmful trans fats.
Ghee has a high smoke point (485 ºF) and it won’t burn like butter. Use it as a spread, or in place of oil or butter in your cooking . Perfect for sautes, stir-fries, sauces, and baking. Pack it up for traveling, camping, picnicking, and hiking – it’s shelf-stable and doesn’t require refrigeration.
We make this ghee with love and care, and hope you will enjoy it.
