Giveaway: Pure Indian Foods Ghee

by lydia on April 9, 2013

Ghee, glorious ghee. That’s what I’m here to write about today, as well as give some away free! If you’ve followed my site at all, you will know that I am a major advocate for the consumption of healthy fats, ghee being one of them. In fact, I often tell people switching over to a real food diet from a processed food diet that fats are likely the first thing you should transition.  Ghee is a versatile fat to get familiar with as it’s good for those who cannot tolerate dairy, as the milk proteins have been removed making it lactose and casein free (read more here). It has a high smoke point so will not burn, and can be use in any way that butter can be used.

Butter and ghee, if obtained from the milk of cows grazing on healthy, pesticide free pasture, offer important healthy fats that are vital for our health. These include Vitamins A, D, E and K2, and also key fatty acids like conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and the Omega fatty acids (Omega-3 and O- 6 in the ideal proportions of 1:1).[6] (Please note, during cold weather months, when dairy cattle are not able to eat significant amounts of grass, and instead are primarily relying on hay, silage or grain, the healthy fat soluble vitamins are greatly diminished in their milk content. Thus it is best to consume butter and ghee made only from the milk of cows out on actively growing pasture.)

I sampled both the basic grassfed organic ghee and the cultured ghee.  Grassfed Organic Ghee – made from the milk of pastured cows, fed on fresh green grass in spring and fall. No GMOs, no added salt, no preservatives, no Trans Fats, no colors or dyes, no MSG, no flavor enhancers. The one and only ingredient is milk, with absolutely nothing else added to it. Cultured Ghee – Read more about how cultured ghee is made here.

I was amazed by the taste. It was far better than my own homemade ghee using just organic butter. This ghee is made originally from raw butter, which has a much more complex taste than pasteurized butter. I used it in many ways, however my favorite favorite way was to make a crispy caramelized onion. I simply heated a good amount of the cultured ghee in a skillet, using enough to have a layer of fat in my pan. Got it nice and hot but not smoking and added a thinly sliced onion and cooked until the onion was cooked through, translucent but crispy on the edges. OH.MY.WORD was it ever the best snack I’d had in awhile. I will definitely be ordering more to make this treat again and again. I’ve definitely found a new product I love and plan to order regularly. Good fats are SO critical to good health. It’s important to me to find the best quality out there and utilize it when the budget allows. I just know you are going to love the ghee from Pure Indian Foods as well.

I have been wanting to get some Pure Indian Ghee for a long time now, and this seems like a golden opportunity to try it out. I’m sure that I will love it. I cannot find any organic grass-fed Ghee in stores here. I am especially interested because of the Vitamin K2 content.

Always happy to support a WAPF chapter leader and I love cooking with ghee–especially Indian and grass fed. I cook eggs, vegetables, and make sourdough cookies with it. Although I prefer whole butter on things like waffles and toast, using ghee instead is an interesting change once in a while–or half ghee/half coconut oil. I also cook Indian dishes. Delicious.
