Modern science now verifies what Ayurvedic health science has said for thousands of years. Ghee has a host of health and cooking benefits and is good for the mind and spirit.
I consider ghee — a form of clarified butter — an essential powerfood!
Great For Cooking and Taste
1. Ghee has a high smoke point (250 °C 482 °F).
You can cook and fry with ghee and it will not break down into free radicals like many other oils.
2. Ghee does not spoil easily so does not need refrigeration. Some ghee mixtures last up to 100 years.
3. Buttery taste without causing dairy allergies.
Ghee is made from butter but the milk solids and impurities have been removed so most people who are lactose or casein intolerant have no issue with ghee.
