The main difference is their Flavour or aroma profile. Ghee has a strong cooked buttery aroma, while Butter Oil or Anhydrous Milk Fat (AMF) has bland or no flavor. Another key difference is Crystals or Grainy structure. Ghee has a large grainy structure, while Butter Oil or Anhydrous Milk Fat (AMF) are just oil or greasy; they don’t have a grainy structure.

More prominent granules are marks of purity and are preferred by Consumers. Milkio Ghee has both superior flavor and bigger grainy crystals.

Although they look similar, ghee and anhydrous milk fat or butter oil are slightly different in its property. Butter oil does not have a high smoke point; alternatively, ghee has a high smoke point.

People who are allergic to dairy products can easily include ghee in their diet. During the clarification process of ghee, casein and lactose are removed from the butter, which makes ghee safe to consume.

Both ghee and butter have their respective effects on the body. Some studies and experiments have revealed that ghee has a somewhat alkalizing effect on the body. In contrast, butter will have a somewhat acidifying effect on the body.

Ghee’s quality is better than butter. Ghee will also enhance the sweetness and richness of the food compared to butter.

One tablespoon of ghee will offer you the same quality (in terms of recipe) that 3 tablespoons of butter can offer.

Why do you call it traditional–is often asked about ghee. It is called traditional because the age-old boiling process is used for making ghee with the state of the art technology and tools. During the manufacturing process of traditional ghee, butter is brought to boiling, and it is cooked until all moisture from the butter is dispersed. In this process, the entire portion of milk solids gets settled at the bottom of the boiling pot.

These milk solids, settled at the bottom, are burned or caramelized, which is the reason for adding a typical nutty flavor to ghee. The traditional ghee-making process is slightly different from butter oil or butter ghee. 

It is done simply by heating butter and removing froths from the top of the pot and ghee residues accumulated at the bottom.

How come your ghee has more aroma or flavor than other ghee in the market? You have asked a vital question.

Usually, the presence of free fatty acids, carbonyl, and lactones in ghee stands responsible for ghee’s flavor. The flavor profile is affected by the quality of cow milk, preparation method, the temperature of clarification, and storage period.

In Milkio’s ghee, the proportion of fatty acids, carbonyl, and lactones is optimum, and in the preparation process, clarification temperature is maintained at its best, generating the typical aroma.

What is a keto diet? A ketogenic diet is a popular and proven successful dieting scheme worldwide, where dieters are recommended to reduce their carbohydrate consumption and instead focus on their protein and fat intake.

The Keto diet gained popularity due to its ability to lose body fat quickly. People suffering from obesity or with excess unwanted body fat may see significant benefits from trying out a Keto diet, provided there is no history of heart disease or hypertension.

This diet is based on the theory of ketosis, where the human body doesn’t use the Citric Acid Cycle due to a lack of glucose from carbohydrates. So essentially, the Keto diet is a high-fat, high-protein, low-carb diet. The reduction of carbohydrates induces the state of ketosis.

So since fats are a significant point of interest in this diet, this brings the question of whether ghee or butter is better.

Ghee contains loads of fat. The common misconception is that fat-containing foods such as ghee lead to excess body fat storage. It is, however, not the case, as proved by modern scientists. Cow ghee is made by heating butter until the milk solids and proteins are removed, leaving ghee with pure butter fat.

The fats in ghee include triglycerides, free fatty acids, sterol & sterol esters, carbonyls, carotenoids, and phospholipids, many of which are indeed saturated fats. Although “fats” and “saturated fats” often have negative connotations, they are essential for critical bodily functions. Fats are necessary for absorbing fat-soluble vitamins such as A, D, E & K.

Fats are also essential in providing organ insulation, aiding cell structure, and providing energy for growth. Many extreme diets that insist on cutting fats completely out of the diet do not have scientific/nutritional backing.

As with most other foods, fat-containing foods such as ghee must be consumed in moderation and tied to an active, balanced lifestyle.

All foods contain calories, and if an excessive amount of calories over the daily limit is consumed, this will be stored in the body and lead to weight gain.

So a healthy diet will ideally include an appropriate portion of all macronutrients; proteins, carbohydrates, and fats, making sure not to exceed your daily calorie limit. Your food intake recommendations will change with age and health conditions.

People with a family history of heart disease should keep their saturated fat consumption low to prevent arterial blockage. A sedentary lifestyle can also lead to many complications; therefore, it is not recommended to have a high saturated fat consumption in this condition.

Having cow ghee on an empty stomach will provide high energy levels to start your morning, and the energy will be used throughout the day, not leading to weight gain.

Replacing fats such as oils and butter in your diet with good quality grass-fed cow ghee brings many benefits. Grass-fed cow ghee contains helpful CLAs, amino acids, and fatty acids 3- 6.

Consumption of grass-fed cow ghee is advantageous and, when tied to an active, healthy lifestyle, can add many positive aspects to your health.

Ghee from butter is the basic rule of making ghee. The homemade process is for producing ghee on a small scale. The whole process is divided into three phases. Churning, boiling, and filtering ghee for storage.

The churning process converts pure cow milk into curd, and milk butter is prepared from the card. Ghee is made from unsalted milk butter. You can prepare butter at home, or you may buy good quality unsalted butter readymade.

Ghee is known as clarified butter because it is made from the process of clarification or refinement. The process of making butter is a slow cooking boiling method. You have to boil butter against low flame unless butterfat gets wholly separated.

During the ghee-making process, water evaporates, and milk solids like lactose and casein get eliminated and drop at the bottom of the butter boiling pan as ghee residue.

The pure butterfat in a melted state remains in the pot, which you have to filter with a strainer or cheesecloth to store in an airtight container. It is ghee, which is prepared from butter.
