Ghee is pure and aromatic, if homemade. Never say “No” to ghee because of fat. Some vitamins are fat-soluble and your body needs fat for proper absorption of those vitamins. Moreover, ghee is just not “FAT”…
Ghee enhances eyesight, immunity, memory power, strong muscles, bones and teeth. It prevents and treats constipation. Ghee is specially recommended for dads-to-be, moms-to-be, pregnant women, babies and kids.
As milk solids are removed from butter, ghee can be consumed by lactose-intolerant(One who is allergic to milk and milk products) persons too.
Before mixing ghee to food, do melt it and add for proper digestion. Moderate consumption of ghee does more good and keeps us healthy!
