The recent past has witnessed a large number of people who didn’t take their health into consideration to now keep account of every calorie and gram being consumed. While we indulge in sinful desserts and savoury delectables, we now want to consume it in the healthiest way possible. Your favourite Pav Bhaji dish is the tastiest when sprinkled with a dollop(s) of butter on the bhaji and pav. It is equally tasty, and healthy, when sprinkled on with a spoonful of desi A2 cow ghee.
Pure A2 cow ghee is not just an accompaniment, but a necessity (at least in Indian households). Being rich in Omega-3 and other nutrients like vitamins, minerals, protein, iron, and calcium, it is considered the purest of all foods. However, it seems absurd at times to replace dishes which ask for butter or vegetable oil with a2 ghee. While consuming butter or vegetable oil is not necessarily bad for you (when eaten in moderation), ghee is the healthier option if you are to consume it every day.
What is A2 cow ghee?
Prepared specifically from the milk of A2 cows or the Gir cows of India, it is made by either heating butter or using the ancient ‘bilona’ process of curdling the milk and hand-churning it until the milk solids separate. The nutritional value of pure desi ghee prepared through the ‘bilona’ process exceeds the benefits of other substances such as butter or oil, which can be used for cooking. There is a lot more about A2 cow ghee which you can read about here.
Ghee vs Butter/Oil
The calorie and fat content between ghee and butter are almost negligible. While they may seem similar, A2 cow ghee is always considered superior to butter in several healthy ways:
The battle of ghee versus butter is on for decades, but with newer studies and constant research, ghee has been found to be the better and healthier alternative to butter or vegetable oil. The purest form of ghee made from the milk of A2 cows contains more nutrients than homemade ghee or a regular jar of butter or oil. With higher shelf life and good cholesterol, it is always advisable to consume A2 cow ghee over butter.
At Amrutam, our Vedic A2 cow ghee is made specifically from the milk of A2 cows. With absolutely no form of chemicals or additives involved, the ghee is hand-churned to perfection using the ancient 'bilona' process which retains the elements of sweetness and provides for the best alternative to butter or vegetable oil.
