Ghee FAQs

 
What is Ghee?

Ghee is a 1:1 substitute of cooking oil and butter.

It’s a type of cooking fat that is made by heating butter. During this process, milk solids float to the top and sink to the bottom. The remaining liquid is butter fat that is naturally lactose and casein free.

Do I have to refrigerate Gai Ghee after I open the jar?

No. In summer or if your kitchen is very warm, you may want to keep ghee in the refrigerator - it softens very quickly when you take it out - but you don't have to refrigerate.  Keep the cap on when not in use, and always dip into the ghee with a clean, dry, utensil.

What is the difference between "pasture-raised"?

Pasture-raised animals graze certified organic pasture whenever weather permits and receive supplemental grain rations.

 

Is Gai Ghee Butter lactose- and casein-free?

Filtering out the milk solids makes ghee lactose- and casein-free, so lactose-intolerant people (with the exception of very severe cases) are often able to eat Gai Ghee Butter.

 

How is Gai Ghee Butter made?

Gai Ghee is made from USDA Certified Organic milk from Organic Valley's pasture-raised cows. Butter is made from scratch, and then that butter is simmered until the water separates from the butterfat. The butterfat is then filtered to remove any remaining solids, leaving an exceptionally pure ghee. Our ghee is salt-free, lactose-free and casein-free and is Kosher and Halal approved.

 

Do I have to refrigerate Gai Ghee Butter after I open the jar?

No, you don't have to refrigerate.  Keep the cap on when not in use, and always dip into the ghee with a clean, dry, utensil.

Why should I use ghee over olive oil?

When olive oil is used for cooking, it is often overheated. If olive oil has started to smoke, it turns into a trans-fatty acid. Ghee has a higher smoke point so is better to cook with. Also, ghee tastes like butter.

How long does ghee last?

If you keep the jar clean (don’t use dirty spoons, crumbs, etc.) it should last indefinitely. However, we generally recommend 6-9 months. And no need to refrigerate it.

Why are you better than other brands?

Gai Ghee Butter is made from scratch using grandma’s authentic recipe. Unlike other ghees in the market that are made with imported butter, at Gai Ghee, we first make our own butter from organic milk, then turn it into delicious ghee. That has more nutrition as it is freshly made, and we quality control ingredients as they are bought locally.

What should I use it for?

Any time you use butter, olive oil, coconut oil, etc., replace it with ghee! Ghee is a 1:1 substitute. Its spreadable texture makes it easy for baking and it tastes great on warm toast.

Why Should I use it?

Ghee is much better for you than butter. It’s a high-powered fat. It’s similar in health benefits to coconut oil or olive oil, but it’s better for cooking because of its high smoke point (450-485 degrees for ghee vs. 280 degrees for olive oil). When other oils smoke, they become trans fats.

And, you don’t have to refrigerate ghee! It’s always a spreadable consistency.

What’s the difference between butter and ghee

Butter has three basic components: butterfat, milk solids, and water. If you remove the milk solids and the water, you get ghee. Butter does not have health benefits like ghee does.

The milk solids are then filtered out, and what you’re left with is the pure healthy fat, which is lactose free & dairy free, as well as good for digestion and metabolism.

Since our ghee is made from pasture-raised cows milk, it has a wonderful yellow color and is high in vitamins A, D & E.
