FRYING AND COOKING WITH TRADITIONAL, GRASS-FED GHEE
Ghee, or clarified butter, has been an essential ingredient in Indian cuisine for centuries. The chemical composition of ghee is stable, making it an excellent choice for cooking and frying in higher temperatures and a good alternative to traditional butter. Because of the high rate of saturated fats, you should not rely your entire fat intake on ghee, no matter how delicious its nutty, full-bodied flavour is.
The toasty, nutty flavour of ghee makes it an exceptionally good choice for Asian dishes. In many of India’s regional cuisines, ghee is used to emphasise flavors of garlic, turmeric and cumin. In the Ayurvedic tradition it is also eaten on its own before a meal to promote digestion.
The difference between traditional butter and ghee is that the water and milk protein have been removed from the latter. It is in fact an organically produced “butter oil”, that is made from fresh, organically certified grass-fed milk from Alpine cows. The cows are free to graze in the Alps, eating Alpine herbs and grass. Ghee does not include any casein or lactose, the typical causes of dairy intolerance, but it is not a dairy-free butter.
