So glad you asked! In the simplest terms:
Ghee is a butter that has been heated and reduced until all the milk solids separate. Then the casein and lactose solids are filtered out (we filter five times!).
The result is a good healthy PURE fat – ghee.
Why Choose Ghee?
Everyone has different relationships with food – varying preferences, needs, and possibly restrictions. We do too! But that doesn’t have to stop you from enjoying food. It can still be a delicious and nutritious adventure. We’re here to help you heal, savor and enjoy every last bite of food and life. Discover all the things that make ghee a simple and wonderful fat choice for just about everyone!
Ghee is a Fat That Doesn’t Make You Fat
Newsflash: Fat doesn’t make you fat.
(Sugar and trans fat can though… And trans fat is often found in rancid oils.)
Which is why our ghee is the ideal cooking fat.
It has no sugar. And it doesn’t go rancid like many olive and nut oils.
Ghee Contains Essential Fatty Acids
Ghee contains a special kind of fatty acid – CLA. Some studies have shown that CLA – conjugated linoleic acid, can reduce body fat and blood pressure!
But keep in mind, if you want the maximum benefits of CLA in your ghee – you need to have 100% grass-fed ghee.
Grass-fed ghee also contains omega-3 fatty acid another critical component of a healthy heart.
Ghee is Free of Lactose and Casein
It is estimated that 15 million Americans have food allergies, including 5.9 million children under the age 18.
If you are looking for a lactose free fat, but don’t want everything you eat to taste like coconuts, ghee can be your go to.
We even have truly one-of-a-kind flavors for each of your cooking adventures. More on that below.
Ghee Has a High Smoke Point
Every fat has a different smoke point. If you cook a fat past it’s smoke point you can destroy all the healthy nutrients in that fat.
Think about it. Cooking above a smoke point would be like diluting an antibiotic and hoping it still remained effective.
The smoke point of butter is 200-250F. The smoke point for coconut oil is 350F. The smoke point of ghee is 485F!
In One Teaspoon of Ghee …
In just one teaspoon of ghee you’ll get the right amount of good fat to aid in digestion and metabolize nutrients from our food.
Ghee is rich in vitamins A, E, D and K. Our grass-fed ghee contains much higher levels of vitamin K2, a nutrient that is extremely important for heart health.
P.S. Ghee Isn’t Just Another New Health Trend Either
People have been using ghee for thousands of years!
It’s been used as a cooking fat, to fuel lamps and even as medicine.
