Many types of herbal ghee are available in the market. In the present study, Investigation were made to observe the chemical changes that takes place in ghee supplemented with flaxseed oil and brahmi herbs during storage. Flaxseed oil and brahmi herbs are known for their health beneficials aspects. The sample of herbal cow ghee was analyzed for Reichert-Meissl Value, Polenske Value, Iodine Value, Saponification Value, Moisture Percentage, Fat Percentage, Antioxidant Activity (%DPPH Radical Scavenging Activity), Free Fatty Acid (% Oleic acid), Peroxide Value (Millimoles/gm of sample) and Thiobarbituric Acid (mg malonaldehyde/kg fat) at ambient temperature. Cow ghee samples of Free Fatty Acid, Peroxide Value and Thiobarbituric Acidwas increased significantly while radical scavenging activity (RSA) of cow ghee samples decreased significantly during storage at ambient temperature.
