Ghee, in our humble opinion, is by far the best cooking fat that you can use. Apart from being absolutely delicious, it has a multitude of health and culinary benefits that are unmatched by any other cooking fat or oil. Don’t believe us? Prepare to be converted! 

Here are five benefits of 4th & Heart Ghee that might just surprise you! 

  • Our ghee is made from grass-fed dairy, which contains a higher dosage of fat-soluble vitamins.
  • What does this mean? Basically, because we source high quality grass-fed, pasture-raised butter to make our ghee, it inherently has more Vitamins A, D, E, and K – all of which help your organs operate better, strengthen your bones, and bolster your immune system. 

  • It has a high smoke point of 485ºF.
  • Why is this important? When cooking oil burns, it starts to decompose chemically and can turn toxic. It also ruins the flavor of whatever you’re cooking, and nobody wants that! Our ghee has a smoke point of 485ºF, which means that you can heat it to an extremely high temperature and still maintain its delicious flavor and its nutritional benefits. 

  • It contains heart-healthy CLA. 
  • CLA, or conjugated linoleic acid, is a heart healthy fatty acid that our bodies need. Grass-fed ghee contains higher CLA, which means that our ghee has heart healthy benefits! 

  • It has a well-balanced amount of omega-3s and omega-6s. 
  • Omega-3s and omega-6s are also healthy fatty acids that our bodies need (they help regulate blood pressure and inflammatory responses), and our ghee contains these too! You can give yourself an extra jolt of omega-3 if you pair our ghee with salmon! 

  • Ghee is actually lactose-free.
  • Sounds crazy, right? Even though our ghee is made from grass-fed dairy, it’s still lactose free because ghee doesn’t actually contain any milk solids. This means that ghee is a perfect substitute for butter and can be eaten by those on Keto, Whole30, Paleo, and lactose-free diets. The best part? It’s absolutely delicious!
