Why Ghee?

OMGhee is a healthy fat (like an avocado) and has a ton of benefits.

It tastes a little like a caramelised, buttery, shortbread and is an easy swap and healthy solution to any butter addiction. Here’s some of the main reason we love ghee and see it as super easy switch for butter on your wellness journey.

Lactose Free

Made from butter but better. Ghee is lactose free. We don’t add anything to the butter, instead we remove all the milk solids at the end of the cooking process. Ghee makes a fabulous butter alternative for those with dairy intolerances or are just looking to reduce dairy proteins and sugars in their diet.

Shelf Stable

Ghee can be left at the back of the pantry unopened for years. Once opened it is shelf stable out of the refrigerator so you can leave it out on the kitchen bench (make sure you use a clean spoon and keep the lid well sealed between uses). Many customers use ghee when they take off on their outdoor adventures like camping, hiking and fishing as it’s a great cooking fat on the open fire and does not need refrigeration when fridge space is already tight.

100% South Australian

Made in South Australia from 100% organic, biodynamic Paris Creek Grass Fed Butter.

Rich in Vitamins

Due to the low and slow cooking process ghee is rich in important nutrients like vitamin A, omega-3 fatty acids, and conjugated linoleic acid which help reduce gut inflammation and support heart health. But wait there’s more! As an added bonus ghee increases bioavailability - meaning you absorb more vitamins and minerals from the food you eat.

The Health Benefits

Used medicinally for 1000's of years to reduce inflammation, boost immunity and lower cholesterol. Ghee has a wide range of uses when it comes to natural medicine. Click here for our top 10 health benefits of Ghee.

The Smoking Point

If you’re a home cook, the ghee’s high smoking point is a real bonus. Forget the release of free radicals or rancidity when using oils or butter at high temperatures ghee has you covered with a super high smoking point of 250 ℃ meaning you can cook with it at high temperatures without it burning. Here's a handy infographic that shows you all the other fats and their smoking points.
