Abstract: Ghee is a heat clarified milk fat and supplies various nutrients. It contains, cholesterol, one of the major unsaponifiable matters. Cholesterol ensures stability of cell membranes, necessary for production of different steroid hormones and vitamin D. However, high cholesterol level causes atherosclerosis, strokes, heart attacks, and peripheral vascular diseases. It is advisable to maintain cholesterol level in body. There are many methods for reducing cholesterol content in foods and that include blending in vegetable oils, extraction using organic solvents, cholesterol degradation by cholesterol oxidases and removal via supercritical carbon dioxide extraction as well as using β-cyclodextrins. However, these processes are costly and they may have side effects because of chemical used for removal of cholesterol. Since the usage of the synthetic drug, statins, leads to various side effects, the plants flavonoids with antiartherosclerotic activity gained much attention. So there is need to develop natural way to reduce cholesterol by using herbs in ghee. Keeping the said idea as a central goal, the study was planned with distribution of the work into 4 different phases: (1) assessment of compatibility of herbs in ghee (2) evaluation of the herbs for their cholesterol lowering ability in ghee (3) optimization of the herbs for application and (4) analysis of ghee for quality parameters and sensory.
