Cow Ghee is a fat-rich dairy oil cooked from cow milk fat.

Cow ghee has been recognized lately as a healthy cooking oil. Still, in many households, vegetable oils are preferred as the common cooking oil, assuming that ghee is more fattening than common vegetable oils. But modern research on ghee and its health benefits reveals something new.

Ghee has a higher smoke point

Ghee is a safer option than vegetable oils due to its high smoke point. The higher smoke point of grass-fed ghee is the reason ghee acts stable even at higher temperatures in cooking processes like baking, sautéing, etc.  The higher the smoking points, the safer the oil.

It is safer to use pure cow milk-made ghee at a higher temperature.  It is always better to use ghee for higher-temperature cooking like baking, or deep frying. Ghee remains stable against higher temperatures, where vegetable oils shows a tendency to break down and harmful fume production due to their lower smoke point.

Saturated fats of ghee is a healthier option

Cow’s ghee contains primarily saturated fats, whereas vegetable oils contain mostly unsaturated fats. Unsaturated fats are prone to instability and damage from high-heat cooking and frying, which is why vegetable oil is unsuitable for cooking because it is low on smoke point (It burns very quickly).

To make matters worse, oils such as canola or corn are highly refined, which means they go through a lot of processing, such as extraction at high heat using chemicals before they are put on the shelf.

Ghee is more shelf stable than vegetable oils

You must be looking for shelf-stable cooking oil in your kitchen. It is easier to store storage-friendly cooking ingredients, and pure cow ghee is one step ahead here compared to vegetable oil.

Pure quality organic ghee is storage-friendly. You can store the product without the support of refrigeration for 12-18 months from its manufacturing date if you maintain a few easy storage restrictions like keeping the ghee away from light and moisture exposure etc.

Pure desi ghee can be used in all types of cooking. These cooking ingredients can be used for several instant home remedies, and most vegetable oils cannot offer you these two-way benefits.

Ghee is a nutrient-rich dairy oil

Pure and organic cow milk butter-made ghee is loaded with multiple nutrients. It contains multiple fat-soluble vitamins like vitamins A, D, E, and K.  These are heart-friendly and can help keep heart health at par.

Pure cow milk butter ghee contains 64% saturated fats and very little harmful trans fat. The saturated fats portion contains omega 3 and 6 fatty acids and Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), which are supportive for increasing lean mass in the body if coupled with an active lifestyle and moderate use in diet.

Alternatively, these benefits are not available with most vegetable oils.

Cow ghee is a versatile cooking oil

You can use organic cow ghee for cooking almost all types of dishes. Regardless you are cooking vegetable or non-veg dishes, cow ghee fits in. Besides its stability, cow ghee helps maintain a unique creamy texture and adds a nutty aroma to the cooking that enhances the palate.

Pure ghee clarified butter offers versatile benefits than vegetable oils

Pure cow’s ghee in the diet offers versatile benefits. It is helpful for:

  • Improving immunity.
  • Offers dietary support for natural weight loss.
  • Improves digestive power and reduces the problem of GERD and acidity.
  • Reliving the problem of constipation.
  • It improves flexibility in bone joints, hence used in ayurvedic pain management medicine.
  • It supplies natural energy and promotes a feel-good mood.
  • Lowers bad cholesterol if supported by exercise and physical activity.
  • It helps in retaining memory power, concentration, etc.
  • Pure cow ghee is shelf-stable: Compared to standard vegetable oil, you can store grass-fed cow ghee longer in your kitchen at room temperature.

To date, none of the vegetable cooking oil offers these health benefits for its users.

Why grass-fed cow’ ghee is a better butter?

Grass-fed ghee results from organic dairy farming, where dairy cows are maintained with great care and a particular diet focus.  Organic dairy farms allow these cows and sheep to graze freely on green pasture, mostly fed on the green grass from open pasture or grass-based fodders.  It is found by a study that grass-fed cow milk offers more nutrients than non-grass-fed cow milk.

Grass-fed butter is made from grass-fed cow milk, and grass-fed butter is used as the raw material for grass-fed cow ghee. Grass-fed ghee butter contains more beta carotene, CLA, and butyric acid, which offer better health benefits for ghee users.  

If your query is about the substitution of vegetable oil with pure cow ghee, it is a wise decision because of the ghee rewards described here. However, the ghee benefits are primarily from organic grass-fed cow milk procured from premium ghee only.

Ghee’s diet proves beneficial when this dairy product is used in strict moderation. The benefits of having this dairy staple in the diet are an all-rounder one that contributes to the complete well-being of an individual with general health and an active lifestyle.

This is why it is rightly said that consuming non-grass-fed ghee does not help add taste and richness to the diet. It helps lead a balanced lifestyle leading toward complete well-being of mind and body holistically. But you must find good quality ghee with assured raw material and certified purity.
