Understanding the bilona process of A2 ghee

According to Indian mythology, Lord Krishna was very fond of ghee. The scriptures also state that the villagers, especially women, used to tempt him with their hand-churned butter. Furthermore, he used to tease his mother, Yashoda, to get some butter from her. The bilona process of procuring ghee (butter) from milk has been around since Vedic times called as the traditional churning method. Even Lord Krishna was fond of the process and hand-churned butter to fuel his spiritual development as well as intellectual powers.

Pure desi or A2 cow ghee is a great source of health. Our Vedas have mentioned pure desi cow ghee as RASA that serves the humans with Ojas. The Ojas further adds health, longevity, salubrity, and beauty. The Vedas have also defined the method of procuring desi ghee from cow milk as the bilona process.

Bilona process and Vedic ghee

Vedic or Ayurvedic ghee is the one with unlimited health benefits. A traditional ghee making process promises to secure the necessary and authentic goodness. Therefore, the bilona process to obtain ghee is the most preferred method from which all the richness is procured.

  • The quality of milk: Milk being the primary ingredient in A2 cow ghee, the quality of the same is an important factor. The grass-fed and free-roaming desi cows’ milk is the preferable one used to produce ghee. After leaving the milk for the calves, approx 70 percent is obtained to convert into ghee. The milk is optimized in pure form without adding any additional cream or texture.

  • Using the earthen pot: The obtained milk is later boiled in an earthen pot to retain the goodness of nature. No cream is used to enhance the texture as the bilona process is meant to ensure purity. The earthen pot that contains the milk is left overnight to naturally convert into curd.

  • Cultured butter i.e. pure ghee: After further heating the curd, the water is evaporated from the ghee and thus the fat gets separated from the milk solids. This is the final A2 cow ghee that has all the nutritional properties of ghee described in Vedas and Ayurvedic Shastras.

The ghee prepared through the bilona process retains the essence of milk. As the ghee belongs to a long process and manual labor of hand churning, it reflects on the pure desi cow ghee price and taste.

The presence of Bilona process

With the run race of life, the bilona process is getting clouded. The manpower, wooden churner and earthen pots have been replaced by various machinery and chemicals. The numerous aspects of the bilona traditional process reflect on the value of ghee which translates into a treasure for health.

The availability of pure bilona ghee is rare. As society calls for the goodness in their food and diet, there are a few who understand the need for this healthy, yellow gem in a jar. The process is still alive and serving many people all over the world. However, you need to find and choose the best one for you and your family.

Bilona ghee properties

A2 cow ghee contains Omega 3 and Omega 9 essential fatty acids. Additionally, pure desi ghee has vitamins A, D, E and K along with 9 phenolic antioxidants. This further helps to generate Ojas that is the most subtle element of the human body. There are many more benefits of bilona processed ghee:
