Elixirs

To start this new year on healthy foundations, we have decided to talk to you about the ghee. The ghee is a clarified butter, from which water, impurities, lactose and proteins have been removed. It’s appropriate for lactose free diets. Ghee is the Gold of ayurvedic medicine and it has been used for millennia in the Indian cuisine, to cook, roast and fry.

It doesn’t blacken during the cooking process and is the most stable fat, even at high temperatures. It can be stored at room temperature for months in an airtight container.
