Why Goras ghee doesn’t get solid and remains like oil?
Goras ghee remains in liquid form under room temperature, because it has unsaturated fat. More the percentage of unsaturated fat, the higher will be the melting point.

What is pasteurized milk? Can milk be pasteurized at home?
The pasteurization process consists of two steps. Chilled milk is rapidly heated up to 720C in few seconds and kept for 15 seconds in the same temperature. Then the temperature is brought down to 40C in 5 to 10 seconds. Most of the harmful bacteria grow fast in the temperature range of 300C to 500C. Few of them grow even at low temperature. This process kills or immobilizes all types of bacteria. This process can’t be done at home as temperature of milk can’t be changed so fast.
What is the difference between cow milk and buffalo milk?

This is prepared either by removing fat or by adding water and milk powder. Whole Cow Milk(W.C.M) marketed by GORAS has 3% to 4% fat and 8 % to 9% non fat solids, keeping natural properties of milk, beneficial enzymes and proteins intact.
