I found some info on this that I could understand so I thought I'd share.

http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=newtip&dbid=9

Butter contains about 12-15% of these medium-chain and short-chain fats,
whereas ghee contains about 25%. (Our bodies metabolize medium-chain and
short-chain fats differently than long-chain ones, and medium- and
short-chain ones are not associated with cardiovascular problems in
the same way as the long-chain ones are.)

Also with butter and ghee the amount consumed is not supposed to be excessive because that causes harm.
Just like Dr. D. says it's really good for you in small amounts.

Gives the composition of butter.  I couldn't find the composition of ghee.

I buy organic pastured cultured butter. It's from pastured cows I believe, not grain fed. I hope I'm not wasting my money

Very interesting.  Thanks for sharing this information.  Now I know why I can only have 1/2 tsp of ghee or butter once a week.

The information I found online is that one reason pastured butter is better than unpastured butter is the higher cla content and it's supposed to have more flavor and a little more color from carotene.  Cultured butter is supposed to have less water/milk because the souring helps the fat separate easier.  It supposedly forms ghee faster when you cook it because there is less water and milk protein to burn off.

Ghee is a diamond for me while butter is a black dot.  So at home I use ghee & at restaurants butter.  I eat dry if all they have is margarine.  My portion recommendation is 6 times a week.  

Thanks for the interesting links

SWAMI gives me 1/2 tsp, 3 times a week,  but I probably eat about one teaspoon a day- on normal weeks.  (And this week I'm not worrying too much about portions, or really anything other than avoiding wheat, corn, and potatoes and trying to get enough meat and vegetables. I had however much ghee DD1 put on my omelette.)

Dr. D has recently tweaked the fat allotment on the SWAMI.  Many people have reported seeing their fat quotients increasing.

Ghee has more butyric acid, whereas unpasteurized butter contains Activator X, a compound that Weston Price used to heal his patients. People now speculate that this compound is Vitamin K2 (MK-4).

Store-bought butter does not contain MK-4.

Ghee does not contain MK-4, because it is cooked.

guess these people you mention might have tweaked their swamies differently and thus gotten said increase

It had something to do with Peppermint Twist.  She contacted Dr. D and asked about the tiny amount of fat that was allowed and she said he changed something.  I don't know if it was just for her or across the board for anyone who would then re-run their SWAMIs.
