Locally handcrafted Ghee by Lotus Blue is now available.
Ghee is clarified butter and makes for a great cooking alternative to butter or oil. Ghee is full off saturated (good) fats, whereas butter and some oils are full of polyunsaturated fat, which can be unhealthy when heated to high temperatures.
Our bodies can metabolise ghee more readily than it can butter or some oils. It aids digestion and doesn’t sit heavily in the stomach. It is also known to reduce cholesterol and aid brain and nerve activity.
Ghee is rich in antioxidants and aids in the absorption of vitamins and minerals from other foods, therefore assisting in strengthening the immune system.
While ghee does amazing things to our insides, it can also be effective in treating our skin. Rubbing ghee on the skin after a burn assists the healing process. It also helps reduce redness and itching for eczema sufferers.
