What is ghee? Sounds odd. I’m always on the hunt for new foods, new culinary techniques, and new combinations to try in the kitchen, so I had to know. Is ghee something I need in my life?

While ghee might sound like this new trendy food, it’s something that has been around since ancient times and is believed to have many health benefits. Watch the video to learn more about this intriguing food and how it could help your health.

What is Ghee?

Ghee originated in ancient India and is a staple of Middle Eastern cuisine. It’s a form of butter made from cow or buffalo milk. Not as out there as it sounds, right? It’s created by simmering pure butter, and taking only the liquid fat out of the solution.

Any impurities or residue that are leftover get tossed. The result is a rich, fatty, tasteful food that is often used as a side or a condiment of sorts. Spices can be added to ghee to provide more flavor based on the dish it’s being served with.

The Health Benefits of Ghee

A food formed from liquid fat may seem unhealthy, but Indians have been using ghee for centuries due to it’s perceived health benefits. You may be surprised at what ghee can do.

Health benefits of ghee include:

  • Healthy fats and Omega-3s, such as those found in fish and avocados
  • Anti-inflammatory properties, due to a high amount of the fatty acid butyrate
  • Vitamins A, D, E and K to support the brain and immune system
  • A rich source of antioxidants
  • It is free of preservatives, trans fats, and dairy

How to Use Ghee in the Kitchen

Ghee is a versatile food that can be used for sautéing, frying, spread on bread with jam, or substituted for regular butter or coconut oil in recipes. Ghee provides a fuller, richer flavor to the recipes it’s used in.

Remember: Being as ghee is made from a pure liquid fat, consuming the food in moderation is key.
