Ghee is a clarified butter, made by slowly simmering grass-fed cow butter to separate the milk solids and evaporate any water. This process results in a deliciously fluffy, smooth, lactose-free oil that tastes like caramel and has a high smoke point of 482F.
The Story of Ghee
Ghee has been used for thousands of years, originating in ancient India to prevent butter from spoiling. It is truly an “ancient” health food (and not a fad)! Ghee quickly was integrated into the diet, into ceremonial practice and into Ayurvedic healing practices. It’s believed to promote both mental purification and physical purification through its ability to cleanse and support wellness. Ghee benefits the body both inside and out, and is actually used topically to treat burns and rashes as well as to moisturize the skin and scalp. Much like coconut oil, it’s a versatile fat that is healthy in many ways!
