Ghee - everything you want to know about clarified butter

Oct 19, 2022 Michał Pelc

Ghee is a term derived from Indian cuisine and means clarified butter. Ayurveda attributes to him a whole range of positive properties that are beneficial to health. In our culture, it is better known mainly for its culinary qualities, but it is high time to change that. This is why you should get interested in ghee. Traditional Hindu medicine considered ghee to be the elixir of life. He is even mentioned in the Kama Sutra. It was supposed to stimulate the body's natural vital forces and cleanse it of harmful substances. Ghee is "liquid gold" - butter in its purest form, without any impurities.

Ordinary butter is quite easy to burn in a pan. There is nothing to be ashamed of, probably each of us has burned butter at least once in our lives. A moment of forgetfulness in the kitchen is enough and the butter is burnt. It's not difficult :) It's because ordinary extra butter contains 82% fat, the rest is mainly water and dairy sugars. That's why it's so easy to burn ordinary butter.

If you like a buttery flavor in your dishes, ghee clarified butter is a much better solution.

Clarified butter composition

Clarified butter is made by slowly heating extra butter at the right temperature. This usually takes around 24 hours. During this time, the water slowly evaporates and finally we get clarified butter consisting of 100% fat - without water and milk sugars such as lactose.

Ghee clarified butter consists only of fat. Thanks to this, it has a much higher smoke point than ordinary butter and it withstands high temperatures very well.

Real clarified butter should be labeled: Ingredients: 100% clarified milk fat. It should not contain any additives.
