Yak butter has a rich history throughout Nepal, the Himalayas, and Mongolia. It has long been the fuel of Mt Everest climbers, taking them to the highest mountain on the planet! It is also a staple in the diets of Buddhist Monks, who sip on yak butter tea throughout the day. Traditionally salted, our unsalted yak ghee is as robust in flavor as it is healthy.
Our Yak Ghee is made from A2/A2 butter that comes from yaks living wildly roaming the vast grass plains and mountains of Mongolia. The yaks have an incredibly diverse diet of over 200 types of grasses and herbs and are herded by traditional pastoral nomads.
Certified Paleo and Keto, this new flavor is the perfect addition to your butter tea (best paired with pu-erh ) or coffee! It is also great for any recipe that calls for fat!
A2/A2 refers to the type of beta-casein protein. Most cow milk genetically contains both the A1 + A2 casein proteins, but yak milk is unique in that it only contains A2. A2/A2 milk and ghee made from it, is suggested to have less digestive issues for people sensitive to lactose or dairy.
Store in a cool, dry place. Refrigeration is optional. While clarified butter is shelf stable, use a clean utensil to avoid introducing anything foreign into the jar.
