Ghee is simply clarified butter with a delicious nutty flavour, nicknamed liquid gold because of its potent gut nourishing and health promoting properties.
Within Ayurveda, ghee is considered one of the most holy satvic foods. Satvic foods are said to promote optimal health, positivity, growth and expansion of consciousness. Indeed, today’s modern science and new understanding of the microbiome is beginning to support many of these ancient health claims.
Made my simmering butter on a low heat, the water evaporates and the milk solids separate from the butter fat. The milk solids are then discarded and you are left with pure butyrate, a healthy fat that serves as instant fuel for gut repair and total body rejuvenation.
And one of ghee's greatest perks is that 99% of people who are lactose or casein intolerant can enjoy ghee without a problem since the milk solids have been removed.
