If you cook a Lean Protein in Ghee Butter it is still going to be a Fatty Protein. However, this is much better than using margarine! Ghee also adds a nice "nutty" taste. We especially like to use it to saute vegetables.
Recommended Serving Size: 1 TBSP/per person/per meal
Here are some great benefits of Ghee Butter:
1. Ghee has a high smoke point (250 °C or 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
It does not need refrigeration
3. Ghee is not likely to affect people with a dairy or casein intolerance.
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.
Ghee is rich in the oil soluble vitamins A and E.
5. Ghee is rich in K2 and CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) – an antioxidant with anti-viral properties if it is sourced from grass fed cows-which ours is!!
6. Ghee is Nutritionally Rich Like Coconut Oil
Although it is not pure 100% MCT's like MCT oil, Ghee is rich in medium chain fatty acids, which are absorbed directly by the liver (like carbs) and burned as energy.
7. Weight Loss
The energy from these medium chain fatty acids can be used to burn other fats in the system and lose weight.
The two things that will degrade ghee are water and sunlight.
