Why Organic Ghee Is Better For Your Body
Ghee is a healthy fat made from organic, grass-fed butter and is used in both cooking and in maintaining health. Ghee also just happens to be simply delicious!
We make our ghee by cooking butter using traditional Ayurvedic practices, removing all of the milk solids, water, and impurities. What’s left is lactose-free, casein-free, and shelf-stable cooking oil that becomes solid at room temperature. For these reasons, ghee does not need to be refrigerated.
It boasts a high flash point of 485 degrees, ideal for cooking on the stove, grilling and baking.
At Farmtrue, we are dedicated to incorporating the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda for simple, modern-day use.
Originating in India as an important aspect of Ayurvedic medicine, ghee is also relevant to consumers in the west.
As a phenomenal and versatile cooking oil and spread, ghee can be used as butter or in place of any oil for cooking. As a spread, it’s perfect for pancakes and toast. In cooking, it will elevate your fried eggs, sautéed or roasted vegetables, and seafood. We sauté, bake, and grill with our ghee for it’s delicious taste. With a flash point of 485 degrees, it is superior and a healthy cooking oil.
From an Ayurvedic health standpoint, ghee is a good source of vitamins A & D, promotes healthy digestion, helps ease inflammation, and is extremely nourishing and healing for all tissues of the body. Unlike many other oils, when heated, ghee maintains its alkalinity. It supports the body’s natural ability to cleanse and alleviates overall dryness.
Butter is natural source of butyric acid, a saturated short-chain fatty acid that our body also naturally produces. This acid is beneficial to our gastrointestinal tract as it aids in digestion, calms inflammation and supports the health of our cells in our small and large intestines.
Besides being supportive for digestion, ghee is deeply hydrating for our skin when taken internally and when applied externally, which is why we have handcrafted our ghee-based body care line. Seasonal body oil, lip balms, nasal oil, and oil pulling mouthwash, all support an Ayurvedic self-care routine. In subtle yet profound ways, ghee brings a sense of calm and stability to the mind and builds nourished, supple, flexible tissues and healthy joints. Farmtrue Ghee is certified organic and all of our products are artisanal, slow cooked and hand poured.
Farmtrue offers two variations on our traditional ghee: Garlic Scape, and Vanilla Maple Chai. While our traditional ghee pairs well with all types of foods and baked goods, our garlic scape shines with seafood, pasta, and sautéed vegetables. The vanilla maple chai is a delectable, naturally sweet treat, perfect in oatmeal, sweet potatoes, baked apples, on toast, and is also quite delicious mixed in coffee or tea helping to offset the energy crash caused by caffeine.
In Ayurveda, ghee is regarded as the optimal oil for nourishing the body, mind, and for supporting balanced digestion. Ghee has been used for centuries as a digestive and elimination aid, for energy, for skin and eye health, for lubricating the joints, and for alkalizing the blood. It is also a healthy fat that supports and pacifies the central nervous system. Ghee is used in Ayurvedic medicine to reduce anxiety and overall dryness in the body.
Not all ghee is created equal. Farmtrue is certified organic and committed to sourcing butter from Northeast USA farmers who are dedicated to pasture-raised, grass-fed cows. We strive to provide the highest quality ghee-based products and educate consumers about the health-promoting properties of ghee, as well as Ayurveda.
We have created our ghee and ghee-based food and body care products to introduce the many healing benefits of Ayurveda to as many people as possible. Thank you for being a part of our journey.
