What is ghee?

Ghee is a variation of clarified butter. It is normally made from cow milk butter, which is treated with low heat until the water evaporates and leaves the milk solids behind. Once the solids are skimmed off, what remains is only clarified liquid fat which is also known as ghee.

As ghee is treated with low heat, mostly under 100 degrees, it retains more nutrients compared to standard clarified butter. 

One teaspoon of ghee contains 42 calories, 5 grams of fat, and zero sugar. Ghee is also considered to be an adequate source of Vitamin E which has excellent antioxidant properties.
