Epigamia Ghee Spreads Review – We Tried Two New Variants
Chocolate-flavored spreads made with ghee? We tried the new Epigamia spread variants and here is the quick review!
Remember how granny’s secret trick to enhancing the flavor was lacing the dishes with ghee? Well, guess what? To add to their already pretty innovative product line-up, Epigamia has launched new ghee-based chocolate-flavored spreads. For our Epigamia ghee spreads review, we ordered the dark chocolate-orange and chocolate caramel variants.
Originally, the brand was centered on Greek yogurts and a variety of flavor variants of the same. Headquartered in Mumbai and physically present in five major Indian cities, Epigamia, more recently, has also come up with some interesting products like coconut milk yogurt, yogurt-based smoothie, snack packs, chocolate spreads, ice creams, etc.
Epigamia Ghee Spreads – Everything You Need To Know
Since more and more people have started consuming low-fat milk, homemade ghee is just a distant dream, thanks to the minimal ‘malai’ content. We are all aware of the significant health benefits assocaited with the consumption of ghee. Not only does ghee add to the overall taste of food, it is also loaded with Vitamins A,D,E, and K.
‘Dig, spread, swirl’ the newly launched Epigamia ghee spreads are launched in collaboration with actor Deepika Padukone. The USP of these Epigamia spreads is how they have used ghee as the primary fat source as compared to palm oil used in most spreads.
Healthy fats, no preservatives, and real ingredients- we had to bring back memories of our first Epigamia ghee spreads review.
Our Epigamia ghee spreads review holds answers to the following questions-Do the Epigamia ghee spreads taste too chocolaty or is the balance of flavors maintained? What about consistency? And the aroma? Let’s find out!
#1 Available Variants
Epigamia Ghee Spreads in collaboration with Deepika Padukone are available in two variants. One is the dark chocolate and orange ghee spread and the other variant is chocolate caramel. Both these Epigamia ghee spreads are available in jars of 125 and 250 gm.
#2 Main Ingredients
Ghee, dates, cocoa solids, vegetarian omega concentrate blend, and natural rosemary extract are the primary Epigamia Ghee Spread ingredients.
The additional flavors and sweeteners vary based on the flavor.
#3 Price Range
Chocolate spreads are typically made using cocoa solids and some fats. Based on the fat source, the price of these chocolate spreads can differ.
When comparing the newer Epigamia Ghee Spreads to the ones launched in 2019, we found these were priced exactly the same.
Comparing the Epigamia Ghee Spreads to those brands of chocolate spreads that use nuts as the fat source, we found most of them fall in a similar price range.
#4 Nutritional Facts
One serving of the Epigamia Ghee Spreads is about 20 g (1 tbsp). One serving offers 100-110 calories, based on the flavor variant. You get 6-9 grams of fat, 8-10 grams of carbohydrates and a small amount of proteins from one serving of Epigamia Ghee Spreads.
Reading nutritional labels is as significant as checking the expiry date on packaged foods and beverages.
We compared the nutritional values of some of the most popular chocolate spreads and what we found out was surprising indeed! Most chocolate spreads use palm oil in huge quantities. The addition of cocoa and nuts is 3-4% on average. Epigamia Ghee Spreads are made with ghee as the primary fat source. This is a source of healthy fats that are rich in Omega 3.
Similarly, Epigamia ghee spreads are made without any preservatives. Thumbs up!
#6 Best Enjoyed With
The list of foods that can be enjoyed with chocolate is never-ending and so is the case for ghee.
That being said, Epigamia suggests trying their Ghee spreads with cookies, roti, pav, and something as unconventional as idli and dosa too!

Ghee combined with chocolate? What could we taste more- the ghee or the chocolate? Could we make out the individual ingredients? Or were they seamlessly incorporated?

The color of both the Epigamia Ghee Spreads looks delectable! Talking about the texture, since ghee has been used it shouldn’t be too runny or too lumpy.

The 250 gram jar of the Epigamia Ghee spreads is priced at Rs 350/-. The smaller 125 gram jars are available at Rs 200/-.
