Glad you didn't toss it too.   Just had my melted ghee a few minutes ago. I never would've thought I'd like melted 'butter' by itself

I would say yes.  I do have it in the morning and the evening on an empty stomach, but also use it during the day for cooking.

I would say yes, also, to get the best benefit from it. I think you still get some benefit from it when you eat w/ food, but as I understand, empty stomach is best for GI benefit.

Quoted from LR4T page 165 - last line
Use ghee (clarified butter), which is a good source of butyrate.


Does anyone know for certain?  According to LR4T it doesn't look like it.  It would help me alot w/ my regimen - if I don't have to take on empty stomach....

...rather use it on my oh so good manna and sweet potatoes  

thank you all - esp Debra+ and Italyb

A Ghee Story...

Back when i posted this on another thread...

Before I ever heard of DrD, I went to India to do Panchakarma with an Ayurvedic physician.  On many mornings he gave me 1/4 c of warm melted ghee on an empty stomach.  I did not have a clue as to what I was drinking.  Not knowing if i could find it at home, I brought some home with me.  When I discovered DrD's book at the library and saw how much he recommended ghee, I think it was a big factor in how easily I embraced his whole BTD.
I love the smell of ghee...I love the taste of ghee...I use it in everything and on everything.
Hurrah for ghee.
namaste

I know this isn't really what you're looking for but it is in the Intestinal Protocol. http://www.dadamo.com/protocols/18.html
Will look for you some better info tho.  

Still not it but http://www.dadamo.com/bloggers/ask/archives/00000177.htm

Sorry I didn't find the specific info for which you are looking but did run across this info re: ghee -
Ghee is an antioxidant, rich in Omega 3 oils and short chain fatty acids. It has a positive effect on cholesterol and HDL. In the intestines, it's converted to butyrate, a short chain fatty acid, that both regulates the intestinal flora and promotes the health of the colon tissue.

Really glad I went searching, it's so easy to forget things. And namelessfemm, also found something very important about grinding your own nut butters at the HFS. Will start a new thread on that.

are you melting the ghee before you consume? I put mine in a little glass dish and set it on my warming burner on the stove, then drink it when it's melted. Please don't melt it in the microwave, as doing so will destroy the goodness of it.  NO WAY could I eat solid ghee, but melted, it is very yummy.

I prefer my ghee in its solid form, which is surprising to me as I had an incident with butter when I was about 8 and gave it up entirely. I just eat it (ghee) right off the spoon.  


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

I most prefer ghee for sauteing foods  , but if I'm eating it plain, I just put the spoon in my mouth and let it melt in my mouth...    It usually doesn't take long and it is the perfect temperature...

The following site has a movie showing how to make ghee:

http://www.leeveal.com/ghee.htm




Would someone know  if this movie is still available somewhere on line?   The link provided gives a blank page with  website not found.
Thanks

Thanks Lola,

Following the link you provided brings me back to the page(thread on ghee) where I found the message about the video... the link given  doesn't work any longer.  
I have read the thread... just wondered if there was this video clip/movie available anywhere else on line.
I found  2 short  video clips on Youtube  (How to make Ghee)...  one was about 5 minutes but going by  reading the thread that's not  quite the proper way), the other only 31 seconds.  The short one showed only pictures of the steps..no commentary.

Cheers

Hannah2, wishing you a warm welcome to BTD and the forums.  
I dont have a movie site for you, but making it in the oven is a snap!!
Oven at 350..........bake for at least one hour........longer if you like it a little darker
Place butter in baking dish (I use at least a lb at a time), set timer for 60 min and check at 5 min intervals thereafter, UNLESS it is looking really done at 60 min, then keep a close eye on it. The junk in the bottom should be dark. Skim foamy stuff off the top........strain.......throw the junk on the bottom away............store in container.....you may leave it on the counter IF you use only clean AND dry utensils.   Happy eating!!
P.S.  all the 'recipes' say to leave the container uncovered. If you do, be sure to put some kind of tray beneath it............it will pop and get all over the bottom of the oven......

you're welcome......dont wait, just do it. I wanted to make my own ghee for a long time but was afraid I'd mess it up.    It was SO easy, I've not bought any since. I keep it made up and I usually make 2 lbs at a time. I likes it a lot.

Somebody please help me understand how drinking melted butter is good for one's health ... I just made some ghee... It's golden, clear, with the sediment at the bottom..so I know I did it right, but I can't imagine just drinking melted butter and that being a good thing?!?!?
