Pure A2 cow ghee is not just an accompaniment, but a necessity (at least in Indian households). Being rich in Omega-3 and other nutrients like vitamins, minerals, protein, iron, and calcium, it is considered the purest of all foods. However, it seems absurd at times to replace dishes which ask for butter or vegetable oil with a2 ghee. While consuming butter or vegetable oil is not necessarily bad for you (when eaten in moderation), ghee is the healthier option if you are to consume it every day.
What is A2 cow ghee?Prepared specifically from the milk of A2 cows or the Gir cows of India, it is made by either heating butter or using the ancient ‘bilona’ process of curdling the milk and hand-churning it until the milk solids separate. The nutritional value of pure desi ghee prepared through the ‘bilona’ process exceeds the benefits of other substances such as butter or oil, which can be used for cooking.

The calorie and fat content between ghee and butter are almost negligible. While they may seem similar, A2 cow ghee is always considered superior to butter in several healthy ways.
