1. What is the difference between ghee and anhydrous milk fat or butter oil?

The main difference is their Flavour or aroma profile. Ghee has strong cooked buttery aroma, while Butter Oil or Anhydrous Milk Fat (AMF) has bland or no flavour. Another key difference is Crystals or Grainy structure. Ghee has large grainy structure while Butter Oil or Anhydrous Milk Fat (AMF) are just oil or greasy; don’t have grainy structure. Bigger granules are mark of purity and preferred by Consumers. Milkio Ghee has both superior flavour and bigger grainy crystals.

Although look similar, ghee and anhydrous milk fat or butter oil is slightly different in its property. Butter oil does not have high smoke point; alternatively, ghee has 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 clearly revealed that ghee has somewhat alkalizing effect over the body. In contrast, butter will have somewhat been acidifying effect over the body. Ghee’s quality is better than butter. Ghee will also enhance the sweet and richness of the food in comparison to butter.

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

2. Why do you call it Traditional?

It is called traditional because age-old boiling process is used or 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 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 in ghee. The traditional ghee making process is slightly different than making butter oil or butter ghee. 

It is done simply by heating butter and removal of milk solids risen top of the pot.

3. How come your ghee has more aroma / flavor than other ghee in the market?

Usually presence of free fatty acids, carbonyls and lactones in ghee stand responsible for ghee’s flavor. The flavor profile gets affected by quality of cow milk, method of preparation, as well as temperature of clarification and storage period.

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

  • Cow ghee has a better shelf life: Grass fed is more shelf stable and can be preserved without refrigeration, saving you fridge space.

12. 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 great benefits from trying out a Keto diet, provided there is no history of heart disease or hypertension.

This diet is based off 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 and low-carb diet, the reduction of carbohydrates induces the state of ketosis.

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

15. Why does your ghee have grainy texture whereas another brand of store bought ghee is very smooth?

At Milkio, after making ghee, we allow the fresh produce to settle as well as to cool down at room temperature naturally, and when it cools down, the ghee acquires a grainy texture naturally.

This lovely texture is the result of a planned manufacturing benefit and not in any way a defect within the product.

When users cook with ghee, or they apply it as a spread on a warm food, the grainy texture dissolves almost instantly.

16. How much ghee can I eat every day?

It is really not possible to recommend ghee’s quantity because the ideal quantity depends on the age, lifestyle, general health of an individual. It is better to consult a healthcare care practitioner or a nutritionist to decide the appropriate amount of ghee to be included in your daily diet.

17. Is your ghee salted or unsalted?

Milkio’s Grass-fed cow Ghee is completely unsalted.

18. If we eat ghee, will we become fat?

There is a common misconception that fat containing foods such as ghee lead to excess body fat storage. This is however not the case, as proved by modern scientists. Cow ghee is made from heating butter until the milk solids and proteins are removed, leaving ghee with pure butter fat.

The fats contained in this include triglycerides, free fatty acids, sterol & sterol esters, carbonyls, carotenoids and phospholipids, many of which are indeed saturated fats. Although the term “fats” and “saturated fats” often come with negative connotations, they are essential for important bodily functions. Fats are essential in 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 need to be consumed in moderation and tied to an active, balanced lifestyle.

All foods contain calories, and if an excess 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 personal daily calorie limit. Your food intake recommendations will change with age and health conditions.

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

Having cow ghee in the morning 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 other fats such as oils and butters 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 therefore advantageous, and when tied to an active, healthy lifestyle, can add many positive aspects to your health.
