Organic butter to ghee
Why use ghee?
Ghee has a higher burning point and a higher smoke point than standard clarified butter and oils, which means it is ideal for frying or sautéing foods. The smoke point of a fat, is the temperature at which they become volatile and begin to smoke causing the fat structure to breakdown and possibly produce potentially carcinogenic toxins. The jury is still out on this one. Therefore, promoting healthy cooking at home – ghee is the fat of choice in our home.
Is ghee dairy-free?
Technically, ghee is not dairy-free because it’s butterfat. However, it’s lactose-free because all of the milk solids are completely removed during making. Ghee is again a healthy fat of choice if you are intolerant to lactose, or if you have been on a specific diet and are wanting to gently re-introduce dairy, this is a great start.
