Desi Ghee — Guilt Free
Aug 30, 2022
In recent times however, Desi Cow Ghee has come under fire from certain myths and misconceptions. Let’s debunk some of these right now!
Desi Ghee makes you fat.
This myth couldn’t be farther from the truth. Desi Ghee contains only the healthiest fats and essential vitamins. The omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, along with the abundant antioxidants only work towards better overall fitness and wellbeing. Ghee absolutely does not make you fat! A healthy amount of Ghee with your daily roti or rice aids in digestion and even helps you lose weight.
Desi Cow Ghee is bad for cholesterol.
Absolutely not. Desi Ghee, in fact promotes HDL (good cholesterol) in your body, helping unclog arteries and improve cardiovascular health. The high concentration of monounsaturated omega-3 fats can reduce overall cholesterol levels while keeping your heart healthy.
Cooking with Desi Ghee is harmful.
In reality, cooking with Ghee is safe and healthy. Ghee has an extremely high smoke point of 250° C, making it safer than most refined oils. It can tolerate high temperatures associated with Indian cooking and keep from breaking into harmful free radicals. Sautéing, baking, and even deep frying with Ghee is not only healthier than most oils, but can add richness and depth of flavour to your cooking.
You can’t consume Ghee if you’re lactose intolerant.
Lactose intolerance is typically an inability to digest and process milk solids. Contrary to popular belief, Desi Cow Ghee is completely free of milk solids and is easily digested by anyone. The healthy bacteria and butyric acid in Desi Ghee promotes digestion and gut health.
There is no difference between A1 and A2 Cow Ghee.
The nutritional differences between A1 and A2 Ghee stem from the difference in the milk. While A1 Ghee comes from the milk of foreign cows (Jersey Cows), A2 Ghee is a product of Indian breeds such as Gir, Badri, etc. The milk from foreign cows lacks various nutrients found in A2 milk. Indian breeds are not subjected to genetic mutation, therefore result in a much richer and healthier product.
A2 Ghee is too expensive and not worth the price.
As the name suggests, A2 Ghee comes from A2 milk which is a product of native Indian cows, and is richer in nutrients when compared to A1 milk. The Desi Cow Ghee that comes from native Indian cows is therefore far superior in nutritional value, taste, and texture, which justifies its slightly higher price.

So there you go, now you have all the facts. There is absolutely no reason to hesitate before you add that big dollop of ghee on your roti. Just make sure you choose the right kind.
