GHEE (CLARIFIED BUTTER)
Ghee (the word comes from Sanskrit, ghṛta) has several names around the world. This sattva-guṇi (“mode of goodness”) food has intellect promoting and vitalizing properties. Ghee is a sacred requirement in fire sacrifices, offered to deities through fire. It also finds use in religious ceremonies and healing procedures in Indian culture. To distinguish ghee from vegetable ghee, it is often referred to as desi ghee or asli ghee. The nutritional benefits of ghee have been in use in India cuisine since thousands of years.
Ghee is one of the highest natural sources of conjugated linoleic acid or CLA which is known for its benefits. Vegetable oils lack CLA. Ghee is composed of unsaturated and saturated fatty acids. It contains omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 essential fatty acids. It provides vitamins A, D, E and K. One tablespoon of ghee contains 112 calories, 33mg cholesterol, 12.73g fat, (saturated-7.926g; unsaturated-3.678g; polyunsaturated–0.473g), 0.04g protein and 1mg of calcium and potassium.
Pure ghee can be stored without refrigeration; it has a long shelf life. Store unopened jars in dark and cool place. Open jars should be stored away from light. Once opened, they can be kept outside up to 3 months, after which they can be refrigerated for a year. Please note that ghee will become hard in the refrigerated but will soften once taken out. Use a clean, dry spoon to transfer ghee. Close the lid to avoid moisture from getting in. Unless there is no change in the appearance, flavor and smell of the ghee, it can be safely used.
