Ghee butter has been one of Lucky Vitamin’s top selling items in the past weeks. Many people are already taking advantage of this healthy alternative to regular butter and vegetable oil, but if you are not familiar with ghee, we can quickly explain a little bit more about it.
Ghee is a class of clarified butter originally from South Asia and commonly used in Indian cuisine. Made from milk-producing animals such as cows and buffalo, ghee butter is often used as cooking oil because of its many digestive and health benefits as it does not contain any hydrogenated oils and fats, and does not require adding any additives or commercial ingredients.
Ghee butter contains many important fatty acid chains which may also help healing and tissue repair, and with the absorption of other vitamins and minerals. Prepared through a traditional Indian method, most companies cook the butter until the water and milk solids are removed, resulting in ‘traditional’ ghee.
Additionally, ghee butter is a great alternative for people who are lactose intolerant and it may offer other health benefits. It can help relieve ulcers, improve conditions of constipation, and promote healthy eyes and skin.
Ghee butter also tastes much richer than regular butter. A rich, golden, semi-soft, great taste spread for the best in cooking and baking, dishes made with ghee are often more flavorful and less greasy than those made with traditional vegetable or butter. Ghee gives a rich, buttery flavor to dishes, melting over hot breads and vegetables and it’s perfect for sautéing, resisting smoking at high temperatures.
Ghee butter keeps indefinitely in the refrigerator or can be stored at cool or room temperature for several weeks.
