This Ghee is made from the milk of free range organic pastured cows raised in hilly parts of Nepal. This ghee is clarified using traditional method of ayurveda and is free from lactose and casein. Commercial conventional ghee is made out of the butter that is extracted after pasteurization of milk. This deteriorates the quality of ghee. Unlike conventional method this ghee is made from the butter which is extracted from curd. Raw milk naturally turns into curd enriched with probiotics that enhances the quality of fat present in milk. Process of pasteurization destroys all microbes in milk so that health benefits vanishes. Our grass fed ghee has a distinct yellow color and pleasant aroma. No salt, sugar or preservatives have been added. Ghee is solid and shelf stable below 26oC but during summer it is recommended to refrigerate if not kept in air tight container.
Ghee is the most revered fat mentioned in ayurveda scriptures. Grass fed ghee has a unique nutrition profile without any lactose or casein, but rich in short-chain and medium-chain fatty acids. Ghee made out of ruminants (cows, sheeps, goats) grazing on organic grass provides an excellent source of fat-soluble vitamins including vitamin A (ratinol), E and K2. These vitamins are stored primarily in the fat portion, so the concentration of vitamins in ghee is higher than that in milk. Vitamin A plays an essential role in hormone balance, liver health, fertility, and stamina. Vitamins E plays a key role in maintaining healthy skin and hair. Vitamin K2 is very important but much ignored and it helps in mobilizing and balancing calcium in the body. Grass fed ghee, unlike conventional ghee, has higher concentration of healthy fatty acids such as conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), butyric acid (BA), omega 3, and omega 9. CLA and BA are anti-inflammatory fatty acids that promotes anti-aging. Also BA is a key nutrient that helps in promoting beneficial microbes in our gut. Unlike polyunsaturated vegetable oils such as sunflower, soy, mustard, etc., Ghee is highly recommended for cooking as it has higher smoke point and does not go rancid at higher temperature.
