List of Poor Quality Oil and Ghee Brands

Ghee or edible oil is the most common kitchen commodity which is a compulsory ingredient to cook almost every food so when we talk about quality of Ghee or oil, actually we are talking about improving quality of all food items. Ghee is not only used for cooking in kitchen but it is also used in bakeries and for frying of Samosa and Sweets. There are many poor quality or substandard Ghee and oil brands available in market which are being sold at comparatively low prices. I personally observed such low quality ghee at hotels, dhabas and on food stalls. They are not only of poor quality but also further spoiled by using it at higher temperatures for multiple times for frying of Samosa, pakorra etc.
Punjab Food Authority has taken a  initiative to improve quality of edible oils by publishing a list of poor quality and unhealthy ghee and oil brands.

Earlier, 47 famous Ice Creams were also declared unfit by PFA, for detailed report click here
