Frequently asked questions

Ancient Organics Ghee is always made by hand in small batches, using only organic sweet cream butter from Straus Family Creamery. We are committed to making ghee of uncompromising quality.

Clarified butter is made simply by heating butter and removing the milk solids which have risen to the top of the pot. In the making of traditional ghee, butter is brought to a boil and cooked until all the moisture is boiled off, and all the milk solids (lactose and casein) have settled to the bottom. These milks solids which have settled on the bottom of the pot are intentionally burned or caramelized, developing nutty flavor to the ghee. Ghee is the pure extraction of oil from butter.

We agree that pasteurizing milk destroys the enzyme lactase that digests the milk sugar lactose. Because ghee has no lactose in it, this is not an issue. We boil our butter at approximately 217ºF for several hours. This is higher than most pasteurization temperatures (except for ultra-pasteurization).
