Ghee has been an ancient staple in many diets around the world.
Grass-fed cow ghee is made from heating butter until the milk solids and proteins are removed, leaving ghee with pure butter fat. A child’s diet, particularly under 5, needs to be monitored closely as this is an important developmental stage for vital organs.
Ghee is an excellent source of fats, including saturated fats, which are indeed required for growth. The fats in ghee include triglycerides, free fatty acids, sterol & sterol esters, carbonyls, carotenoids, phospholipids and essential fatty acids such as omega 3 & 9.
Fats such as the ones from grass-fed cow ghee are essential for many important bodily functions such as absorbing fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E & K), providing organ insulation, aiding cell structure and providing energy for growth. Grass fed cow ghee contains beneficial CLAs, amino acids and fatty acids 3- 6.
Fats aid the growth of many organs in a child’s development. Fats are particularly essential in supporting the growth of the brain. The brain is the fattiest organ in our bodies, made up of at least 60% fat, including saturated fats. Fatty acids aid the growth of neurons in the brain.
Fatty acids in the brain
Fatty acids in the brain have a rapid turn over and need to be replaced regularly, and therefore a regular dietary intake of fats are essential at all stages of life, but in particular during development.
Fats are still needed
So even from as early as development in the womb, there needs to be a constant fatty acid supply to aid foetal growth. At later stages in life, fats are still needed to maintain membranes and myelin sheaths surrounding nerve cells.
