GHEE: HEALTHIER THAN BUTTER?


What is it?

Ghee is a type of clarified butter, made by heating butter to separate the liquid and milk solid portions from the fat. It has been a staple of both Indian cuisine and Ayurvedic medicine since ancient times. It can be used mostly in the same ways as butter, but ghee has a rich, caramel-like nutty flavor.


Why choose ghee?
  1. It’s natural as it’s free from additives, preservatives, and trans fats. Because it has no milk-solids it can be stored in room temperature without spoiling.
  2. Ghee has a high smoking point so it can be used for cooking in high temperatures without forming free radicals that are harmful to your health.
  3. Ayurvedic medicine has regularly used ghee to treat burns and swelling. It contains large quantities of butyrate, a fatty acid that has been linked to an immune system response that soothes inflammation.
  4. Since ghee is formed by removing milk solids, it contains only trace amounts of milk sugars (lactose) and proteins (casein), making it suitable for most people with dairy allergies.
  5. Ghee contains plentiful amounts of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K.
  6. In Ayurvedic medicine, ghee is said to restore balance and harmony in the body as well as it has an ability to increase life-force energy in the body.
  7. As ghee is high in saturated fat, it shouldn’t be eaten in excess, so portion control is key. Enjoy its amazing taste in moderation.
  8. Ghee is amazing in bullet coffee. And here we need your attention because our special bulletproof coffee with homemade ghee is available at Motion Café. And it’s a real kick-off for your day, you better try!
