If you follow the Keto diet, you should choose grass-fed ghee. Why?
Grass-fed ghee is known to be called the “better butter.” There are many reasons why:
- Ghee contains more fat per gram than butter: one TBSP contains 14g of fat compared to 1 12g of butter.
- Cow ghee has a better shelf life: Grass-fed is more shelf stable and can be preserved without refrigeration, saving you fridge space.
- Grass-fed Ghee is suitable for lactose intolerant: Ghee is clarified butter, so all the milk solids and proteins are filtered out. Many individuals with a lactose allergy can consume ghee fine but not butter.
Cow ghee is better than butter if you want to consume the right kinds of fats and provide energy on a keto diet.
