Ghee is easy to incorporate into your daily cooking and baking due to its delicious, buttery flavor without any of the troublesome lactose or casein. Coconut oil is not nearly as versatile because it has a very distinct, coconut flavor that can dominate a meal or baked good’s flavor profile.

Coconut oil used to be all the rage, but we’ve run the numbers and it just doesn’t make the mark. Ghee beats coconut oil in terms of smoke point (ghee = 485ºF; coconut oil = 350ºF) AND percentage of saturated fats (the amount can vary, but generally ghee contains about 50-60% saturated fats as compared to coconut oil’s 80-90% saturated fats), so it’s the healthier choice to keep in your pantry for daily use!
