Organic ghee is a type of clarified butter, derived from cow’s milk. But Alovitox Organic Ghee Butter isn’t made from just any cow’s milk. Alovitox Organic Ghee Butter comes from the milk of New Zealand dairy cows that are raised and fed in pastoral, rolling pastures of luscious organic grasses.
The New Zealand dairy industry stands in contrast to most other dairy industries throughout the world. Instead of cows being raised in feed lots, loaded up every day with antibiotics, and crammed together in unsanitary conditions, New Zealand cows are raised out in open pastures, without antibiotics and hormones, the way nature intended. New Zealand’s pure, unpolluted, ocean-influenced climate is ideal for supporting the health of dairy herds.
If there is such a thing as a ‘happy cow’, you’ll find lots of them in New Zealand. New Zealand organic ghee butter is the highest quality ghee butter found anywhere in the world.
Health Benefits of Organic Ghee
Organic ghee is produced by melting regular butter, which separates the liquid fats from the milk solids. Once the milk solids are removed, the result is a ‘clarified’ butter, which contains less lactose. Additional heating results in pure, organic ghee, with a stronger, delicious nuttier flavor, and a darker coloration.
Since organic ghee does not contain the same amount of dairy proteins as butter, it is recommended by nutritionists for people who have an intolerance for dairy products, especially lactose and casein.
Organic ghee and butter are both high in saturated fats, which has caused some concerns related to cardiovascular health. However, a 2018 study conducted in Northern India showed that blood triglycerides and cholesterol levels were both actually better than the control group, who obtained their dietary fats from other sources.
Organic ghee contains high levels of the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and E. Moderate consumption of organic ghee can help repair damaged, dry skin, balance hormonal levels, improve vision, and increase HDL (good) cholesterol. Organic ghee also contains vitamin K, which supports healthy teeth and bones by enhancing calcium assimilation. Vitamin K is also essential to normal blood clotting.
Organic ghee contains a fatty acid known as ‘butyrate acid’, which is essential to digestive health. Butyrate acid has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties and to support healthy weight-loss efforts.
Organic ghee also contains conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). Research has shown CLA to have anti-cancer properties in laboratory studies. It also helps lower cholesterol, helps control blood pressure levels, and reduces inflammation.
The Many Uses of Organic Ghee
The use of organic ghee has been a staple of Indian cuisine and Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. It will last for a very long time, months if necessary, without refrigeration.
Organic ghee has a higher ‘smoke point’ than other traditional cooking oils. Smoke point is the temperature at which the healthy phytonutrients contained in oils begin to break down, resulting in increased free radicals. With organic ghee’s higher smoke point, it is an ideal choice for frying and sautéing.
Organic ghee can be used in nearly every culinary application that calls for butter or standard cooking oils. It is found in many types of recipes, including fudge, quiche, and yes, even the standard grilled cheese sandwich.
Some people like to fry their eggs in it. It can also be drizzled over roasted veggies, or spread on your breakfast muffin. The next time you sit down to enjoy a new Hollywood release, try melting it over your popcorn. You’ll never go back to straight butter.
Bodybuilders and workout enthusiasts claim that by adding a bit of organic ghee to their morning coffee, it gives them an extra lift of energy.
And, of course, if you’re going to tackle that exotic Indian food recipe, and you’re not using organic ghee, it’s not authentic Indian.
What is Organic Ghee?
Organic ghee consists of the pure, unsaturated fats contained in dairy butter. After it has been simmered and strained to remove all water and milk solids, it yields a product that has a clean, sweet, and slightly nutty flavor. Unlike other cooking oils and fats, that have a low smoke point of just over 100 degrees F, organic ghee has a smoke point near 500 degrees F. It’s high smoke point, coupled with its delicious flavor, healthy properties, and long shelf life make it a must-have in everyone’s kitchen.
