Melting point of ghee

The melting point of ghee is a specific temperature when fat molecules of ghee (accumulated in ghee) get melted, and the texture turns liquid. As a result, technically, ghee and melted ghee are the same.

The melting process starts when ghee reaches a definite temperature. The semi-solid state of ghee starts liquifying. Many people get confused between the melting point and the smoking point of ghee. But in reality, they are poles apart. Let’s understand why? 

Define the melting point of ghee

At room temperature, ghee is generally found in semi-liquid form. Seventy-six degrees Fahrenheit (or 32.4° Celsius) is the actual melting point of grass-fed cow ghee. Once ghee or clarified butter reaches this temperature, it starts melting. That’s called the melting point of ghee.  If we compare the butter melting point with ghee, it is 32 to 35 °C (90 to 95 °F).

Define ghee smoking point

Have you ever noticed a nonstop bluish smoke getting released from ghee? it happens while cooking with ghee when ghee reaches a specific temperature that sheds oil/fat and begins to burn. At this temperatre ghee starts breaking down. For grass fed ghee, it is 485 degrees Fahrenheit, and it is called the smoking point or the burning point of ghee.

Higher smoking point of ghee is healthy feature for high-temperature cooking, which keeps ghee stable against the flame. The stable feature of ghee is useful and responsible for differnt health benefits.

The benefit of high smoking point of ghee

  • Adaptability in cooking: For the high smoking point, you can use ghee in food different preparation with ease.
  • Additional immovability for culinary usage: It doesn’t produce free radicals no matter  at what temperature you are cooking.
  • Health-friendly cooking oil: Ghee is one of the safest cooking oils that offers ample health benefits.

Remember, only pure ghee clarified butter provides a high smoke point. If the ghee contains impurities, it won’t offer the same smoking point as high as pure ghee.

The natural reasons for ghee melting

According to the ghee experts, the melting point of ghee depends on three reasons. These are,

  • The season,
  • The types of the ruminates’ breed
  • The storage arrangement.

For instance, it is noticed that the meling point of the buffalo ghee  is higher than pure cow ghee.

All ghee fats are the collection of fatty acids in crystalized forms. In terms of chemistry, ghee melting point is the specific temperature when the fat molecules break from hard to soft stature and then turns ghee from soft condition to the liquid phase. 

While cooking, we typically use solid fats at room temperature for baking. We mostly use the fat molecules in liquid form at room temperature as oil. One can use it easily for salad-seasoning or making dips.
