Frequently Asked Questions

Desi ghee, when made using pure A2 milk, which has only A2 Beta casein (a type of protein), is called A2 ghee. This type of protein is found in the milk of only some native Indian breeds of cows and some other animals like the Indian buffalo, goat, sheep, camel, etc.

The desi ghee obtained from A2 milk is one of the best nutrition products with superior taste, healthier essential nutrients and better digestibility. A2 cow ghee is grainy in texture and is made by heating butter on low flame for a long duration to retain the essential nutrients.

Apart from the goodness and purity that only handcrafted and homemade cow ghee can provide, the real superiority of our product is this the testimonial that every patron alludes to, of the nostalgia it induces instantly; something no other brand does as they are not personally crafted to perfection every morning and delivered by evening! The pricing of Nei Native A2 Ghee stems from the high quality full cream milk and each 500 gram jar requires about 12 litres of full cream milk without any additives or preservatives or adulteration. Even if you don’t take the retail cost of full cream milk (which is anywhere between Rs 90 to 110 per litre) but milk sourced straight from the wholesaler, the rate is between Rs 70 to 80 per litre. The cost hence is appx Rs 1000+ per 500 grams only for the milk, labour, gas and bottling. This doesn’t even include delivery and packaging of handmade food products like the desi Ghee. The selling price of Rs 1550 considering the above cost is hardly high and fully justified only when it’s special A2 Ghee aroma, texture and flavour is imbued- something the Indian cow ghee consumer has not had in years, reminisces of her mother or grandmother instantly after having Nei Native nutrition products, and rediscovers what has been lost for ages, reigniting memories for her as well as her family which we have managed to resurrect! One other point to note is that, A2 Ghee is different from normal ghee – because it’s A2 cultured cow ghee – which means the Ghee has been made using bilona method – taking butter from the cream of curd (and not cream of milk), retaining the essential nutrients of the desi ghee!

The easiest method to check the purity of cow ghee is by melting it in a pan. Put a pan on medium heat and let it heat for a while, now add a teaspoon of ghee to it. If the desi ghee melts immediately and turns dark brownish in colour, then it is pure A2 ghee.

3 Reasons why A2 ghee is the better choice : – A1 protein is known to be harmful to the body, specifically affecting lactose intolerant individuals. This is also the protein which is known to be less digestible than A2 protein. – A1 milk and hence, A1 ghee comes from a genetically modified breed of Cow called as Holstein / Jersey cow while A2 milk or A2 ghee comes from primitive form of breed a.k.a Desi Gir cow which was never mutated. – Desi Gir cows are generally Indian or African indigenous cows which produce up to 6 litres of milk per day. The Holstein breed of Cow was bred in our pursuit of better productivity & cheaper cost since they can produce up to 20 litres of milk per day. This also explains why A2 Milk and A2 Ghee are more expensive than A1 Milk and A1 Cow Ghee respectively.

A2 milk ghee is one of the most easily digestible dairy fats. This makes it an ideal choice for consumption by all age groups. It helps prevent constipation, aids digestion and detoxifies the body. This cow ghee contains butyric acid, which nourishes the body.

The high level of essential nutrients like Omega-3 fatty acids present in A2 ghee is said to be beneficial for cardiovascular health. The desi cow ghee rich in A2 protein helps build up HDLs or High-Density Lipoproteins that combat cholesterol levels by extracting them out of the bloodstream.
