What is a keto diet? – Key points to understand
A ketogenic diet can help lose unwanted weight faster than a low-fat diet, and this often happens without the irritation of suppressing hunger. The ketogenic diet can boost insulin sensitivity in human body and results in fat loss leading to significant health benefits for people with type 2 diabetes or prediabetes.
A ketogenic diet (or keto) is predominantly made up of high-fat foods including butter, oils, and cheese as well as very low-carb vegetables in diet plan. This diet forces the body to burn fat for fuel rather than using glucose as energy source.
When it comes to dairy products like milk, cottage cheese or yoghurt, all three of them contain a high amount of carbohydrates, which are not prescribed if one wants to follow a Keto diet.
Therefore, products obtained from milk such as butter or ghee are considered more Keto-friendly. Because they follow the primary rule of the Keto diet which is high in fat and low in carbohydrates.
The New Zealand food safety system extends from “farm to fork”.
Milkio ghee has high saturated fats and contains higher amounts of short-chain and medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which forms a great source of energy and minimal presence of carbohydrates due to the process of manufacturing of ghee, it is a perfect fit for the Keto diet.
The higher amount MCTs are also easily turned into ketones which puts you faster into ketosis.
