I am a little confused because I am dairy free, but ghee is suppose to be ok for me. I have tried it and I dont think it is working with my system...

It does say butter milk on the back.. even though it is lactose free.

thanks.

It says "buttermilk" on the back of what?  The ghee jar?  Have you tried making your own?  Because it's very easy.  

Ghee was my first introduction to dairy after I'd been dairy-free for 10 years.  I believe ghee helped heal my gut so I could digest dairy again.  But it might not work that way for everybody.

Quoted from marjorie

Obviously I am not looking at your bottle of ghee.

Not all bottles of "Ghee" are equal.

In some case a bottle or can that says Ghee can be hydrogenated vegetable oil.


I am suspicious of butter milk as an ingredient.  

Ghee for the diet would normally list either milk fat or butter as ingredient.

Butter milk can mean different things. But the normal definition is the liquid that is left after you have removed the butter from cream.

To get buttermilk you churn cream. The fat that  goes into the butter. Most of the dairy substance that you do not want is left in the butter milk. This butter milk can be cultured or not.

The Ghee you want is a further clarification of the butter to remove any milk components other than fat that was not removed by churning.




In the US the containers of buttermilk you buy in the store is often just cultured milk.

Even if you butter milk means this, adding it to clarified butter or ghee is simply going to increase the amount of milk solids in your product.




I can normally eat Ghee, but I do not think I would be able to if buttermilk was added to it.

Properly made Ghee contains only pure butter oil, with all the milk and water removed.  Just pure, liquid gold.  

Tell us about the one you tried, marjorie.

Sorry guys, long day at work.. Purity Farms- Ghee clarified butter (milk). That is what is says.

I agree that Ghee is suppose to heal our guts, so I am taking it one day at a time. SHould I melt the ghee before I apply it on anything, and where do I store it, fridge?

Following all the above I'd like to second Ribbit's suggestion that you make you own Ghee. It's a very simple and pleasant procedure. I follow Pat's way, and put a (ceramic) jar with (organic goat) butter in a preheated to 350 Farnheit oven for 45 minutes. Let it stand for a few seconds to let the vapours fade away and then sieve it through a clean double cheese cloth into another clean and dry ceramic jar, cover after few mintues and let stand on the counter, no need to fridge. Just see that you use a clean and dry spoon each time you take out some ghee, so no mould develops (it can stay good for a long time). The intoxicating fragrance which fills the house during the procedure is your reward, on top of the assured quality of the product.

I do the oven method as yaeli does.  Can't buy pre-made ghee so far that I have found.  Although I haven't looked in a long time.  It's easy and you know what's in it.  

yaeli...how have you been?
