FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Tesmi is very similar to clarified butter/ghee, but it is a little different. The process is the same. The unsalted butter is heated so the water in the butter evaporates, and you have pure oil. To make Tesmi we add spices during this process, so the ghee is already flavoured. This way you can use it immediately for your East African dishes.
No. We use unsalted butter as the main ingredient. We use natural herbs and spices for the flavour. So, there are no artificial additives or E-numbers in our Tesmi.
We wouldn’t dare to say this with 100% certainty. Butter is a dairy product. However, it is heated in such a way that the milk solids float to the top and eventually evaporate. Just like the water in the butter is evaporated. This creates a pure butter oil and makes it lactose-free. However, we do not test for this and therefore we also mention on the Tesmi that it may contain traces of milk.
Tesmi is butter and it is fat. This doesn’t necessarily make it a healthy product. However, if you want to bake, roast, stir-fry or fry it can be healthier than other fats. Tesmi is comparable with Ghee and can be used with high temperatures. Other fats can burn easily and turn black in the pan. It is also a natural product (butter and natural spices) and no artificial additives and E-numbers are used.
