Cited by Emilio Salgari in the pages of his legendary Sandokan, Ghee butter is a staple food in traditional Indian cuisine, rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin K2, Vitamin D and Vitamin E.
Ghee is a fashion food
On instagram the hashtag "#gheebutter" has even 11.8 million citations and the ghee is also used by the stars, first of all Kourtney Kardashian who eats a teaspoon every morning.
But beyond this, modern science has only now witnessed what the Indian ayurvedic health discipline has been saying for thousands of years: Ghee butter has a number of health and cooking benefits and is good for the mind and for the spirit.
The ghee butter is produced through a simple process of boiling the butter and then poured into the fat of the butter, leaving behind the proteins (casein and whey) and the milk solids (which includes lactose).
What remains is also known as ghee butter.
And this is the reason that can be inserted in the GeoPaleoDiet despite being a dairy product, when it is 100% pure fat, so WITHOUT the harmful lactose / casein / serum substances that make up whole milk, causing in many cases autoimmune problems and chronic diseases- degenerative.
Some of you will have seen ghee butter even in supermarkets, under the name of "clarified butter", but it's not like BRADO.
BRADO Ghee Grass Fed is in fact a kind of clarified butter, but unlike the latter, it is prepared by bringing the butter to a boil, thus becoming devoid of the aqueous part, of the proteins and - hear, hear - of lactose.
A pure fat, in short.
But while the clarified butter is used only the clear and golden liquid part, filtered with a metal strainer and poured into a glass container, in BRADO Ghee the casein separates and is caramelized in the pan, giving the mixture a unique taste, thanks to what in jargon is called Maillard reaction: casein separates consequently to a reaction with sugars.
In short, in the clarified butter that you normally find for sale, there is no lactose, but it still contains casein (a protein that several studies indicate as a promoter of tumors and autoimmune diseases), while in the BRADO Ghee Grass Fed there is none of the two dangerous substances.
But it's not over.
What makes BRADO Ghee Grass Fed even more unique is that it is produced ONLY from grass-fed cows, from pristine pastures in Slovenia.
This makes it absolutely extraordinary on the Italian scene, because there is no butter in Italy from grass fed cows, that is, grass-fed cows.
What is the advantage?
The content of beneficial substances of Ghee butter (obviously this also applies to classic butter) depends on the feeding of cattle.
But 100% of the cows from which milk is taken all the normal / clarified butters in Italy (even those from organic farming) eat cereal-based feed, which has a very low amount of vitamins and minerals.
Butter from grazing cows is also richer in Omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin K2, compared to cow-fed butter with cereals (11).
So in a nutshell, grass-fed cows' butter is healthier and more nutritious.
I give an example.
Vitamin K2, essential for the health of arteries, for osteoporosis, diabetes, cancer, stones, etc. gives the grass fed butter its characteristic yellow color.
In fact, all NO grass fed butters are pale white, because they do not contain adequate amounts of Vitamin K2.
Obviously the same thing applies to the other fundamental vitamins A, D and E of which (it would be) rich butter if it were not the wicked fashion to give him the cereals to make him fatten and make it more fruitful economically.
So only BRADO Ghee Grass Fed is:
1. rich in oil soluble with vitamins A, D and E.
2. rich in K2 and CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), an antioxidant with anti-viral properties, precisely because it comes from cows fed only with grass.
3. It is nutritionally rich like coconut oil.
Ghee is rich in medium chain fatty acids that are absorbed directly by the liver (like carbohydrates) and burned in the form of energy.
Athletes can use clarified butter as a constant energy source.
Its use is universal; grease, cook, fry, roast, mix with the dough, used as a spread, as a side dish, for body care and much more.
For example it can be used for those who make paleo-ketogenic, a very valid alternative to lard and coconut oil.
When used daily it helps maintain well-being.
Just like butter, Ghee has had a bad reputation over the past 30 years due to its high saturated fat content.
But research has revealed that instead of increasing the risk of heart disease, ghee actually reduces it - and this is not the only trump card.
As we have already said, BRADO Ghee Grass Fed obtained from butter from grass-fed cows is rich in vitamins A, D, E and K, but also two very interesting substances, such as CLA (1) fatty acids and butyric acid (17) .
Butter is a very complex food. It contains around 400 different fatty acids and a certain amount of fat-soluble vitamins (7).
All this concentration of beneficial substances in a few grams of product lead to a whole series of unexpected health benefits:
1. It can reduce the risk of heart disease.
Despite the bad press he has received over the years, Ghee Butter could actually be protective against heart disease.
Ghee is rich in conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA, a fatty acid known to be protective against carcinogens, arterial plaque and diabetes.
CLA is also known as a weight loss supplement, which, as several studies have shown, can have powerful health effects (9,10).
Grass fed butter contains 5 times more CLA than butter produced from cereals fed with cereals (8).
Because of these benefits, the researchers say that ghee grass fed butter (like BRADO) can potentially be used to help prevent cardiovascular disease (2).
An unfortunate result of the war on saturated fats has been the replacement of traditional foods with highly transformed alternatives, such as margarine.
A study indicates the increase in the consumption of vegetable ghee (such as our margarine), which contains up to 40% of trans fatty acids, actually led to an increase in cardiovascular disease in Indians.
A study conducted on a rural population in India showed that men who ate large amounts of traditional Ghee had a lower incidence of heart disease than those who ate less (3).
Saturated fatty acids are actually much more than just a source of energy, some of them have a very powerful biological activity.
As a consequence, many of the fatty acids present in butter can affect our physiology and biochemistry, with interesting health benefits.
Usually butter is considered a "dangerous" food due to its saturated fat content.
We have always been used to fear it.
But saturated fats really aren't bad, on the contrary ...
The myth of saturated fat has been debunked in recent years. Two studies involving hundreds of people were recently published in 2010 and 2014.
These studies have clearly shown that there is no link between consumption of saturated fat and heart disease (12.13).
Studies show that people who eat butter fed grass have lower risks of heart disease
The relationship between the consumption of fat-derived milk products and heart disease seems to depend on the location of the study.
In countries where cows are fed on grass, people who eat butter seem less likely to be victims of heart disease.
A very interesting study on this topic was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2010:
Smit LA, et al. Conjugated linoleic acid in adipose tissue and risk of myocardial infarction. American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 2010.
This study analyzed CLA levels in fat tissues of 1813 patients with non-lethal infarction and compared them with those of 1813 similar subjects who had no heart attack.
This study was done in Costa Rica, where cows are fed on grass.
In the study the subjects were divided into 5 groups, from the lowest to the highest in terms of CLA levels. The results were very interesting.
The more these people ate fatty milk derivatives (like butter), the lower the risk of heart attack.
In fact the people who ate the most were 49% less likely to have a heart attack than those who ate less.
We must bear in mind that this is a case-control study, a type of observational study. This type of study does not prove causality, but it is still very indicative.
This study shows that people who eat more milk derivatives from grass-fed animals have lower risk of heart attack, but do not prove that fats are the reason for risk reduction.
In any case, this study can reassure us that butter is NOT THE ENEMY, as we have always been used to believe.
Many other studies have reported similar results
This is certainly not the only study.
Another study done in Australia showed that people who ate more fat milk derivatives had a 69% lower risk of heart disease than people who ate less (14).
Several other studies in European states, where cows are generally fed on grass, have shown that fats reduce heart attack and stroke (15.16).
All this may also be due to the fact that Vitamin K2 acts on atherosclerosis and arteriosclerosis which devastate our arteries with age due to calcium infiltration, contributing to degenerative diseases.
Recent studies show that a deficiency of Vitamin K2 creates greater vascular calcification than initially thought.
This is why grazing meat / butter is important (18).
In short, the Ghee Grass Fed butter is super healthy
So even though it has been demonized in the past, grass-fed Ghee butter is one of the healthiest heart fats we can use.
2. Ghee can help you make beautiful children.
If you are going to try to conceive a child at any time, vitamin K2 is an important nutrient to incorporate into your diet.
According to the Weston A. Price Foundation, vitamin K2 plays a crucial role in the development of the face and teeth.
Babies born to mothers with high levels of vitamin K2 are more likely to have large, symmetrical faces with plenty of space for straight and healthy teeth later (4).
Grass-fed Ghee is a great source of vitamin K2, making it an important food for pre-conception and pregnancy.
3. Ghee can help improve digestion.
Good digestion is the key to good health, and if you're dealing with any kind of digestive problem, healing the lining of the intestines is an important first step.
Ghee is rich in butyric acid, a short-chain fatty acid that nourishes intestine cells.
What is butyric acid?
Butyric acid is a non-essential, saturated fat, and a food that contains it in large quantities and is particularly beneficial for the intestine is its own Ghee.
Butyric acid is also formed by the degradation of some indigestible vegetable fibers, at the intestinal level. Rarely, however, spontaneously produced doses are sufficient for our well-being.
Butyric acid plays an essential role in the health of the intestine, for which it appears to have an anticancer effect. In fact, according to recent studies, it would reduce the proliferation of cancer cells.
Furthermore, butyric acid is considered one of the most important energy sources for intestinal cells.
Everyone knows the importance of the bacterial flora - or of the human microbiome - and its effects on the health of the entire organism.
But few know the connection between butyric acid, nutrition and symbiotic intestinal bacteria. Non-digestible carbohydrates are considered prebiotics - or nourishment - for our precious bacterial flora.
Inulin, cellulose, resistant starch, beta-glucans, pectins and oligofructoses are all included in the category.
Whenever we introduce indigestible carbohydrates, the bacterial flora begins a fermentation process using these fibers and exploiting some enzymes.
As a result of this process, short chain carboxylic acids are formed, including butyric acid.
The combination of these substances helps to reduce the pH at the level of the colon and - like a chain reaction - this factor increases the production of butyric acid and "good" bacterial flora.
A useful food to increase the intake of butyric acid is always the ghee that has excellent protective virtues of the intestine, as they have searched number researches.
Butyric acid appears to be involved in numerous functions within the body.
One of these, as mentioned, is its specific virtue reducing the risk of developing tumors and liver damage.
The presence of butyrate-producing bacteria species suppresses the growth of Escherichia coli, Campylobacter, Salmonella and Shigella.
Several researches claim that butyric acid - or its derivatives - appear to be excellent anti-cancer and inducers of programmed cancer cell death (or apoptosis).
Studies believe that butyric acid can be successfully used in the "treatment of colorectal cancer and in hemoglobinopathies".
Another study published in it states that "butyric acid and tributyrin are potent apoptotic agents [induce programmed cell death, Nda] and suggest that sources of butyric acid in the diet, such as milk fat, may provide anti-cancer towards the liver ».
Butyric acid in irritable bowel syndrome and ulcerative colitis
Recent studies have shown that:
«The dietary supplementation with butyrate stimulates the lengthening of the villi in the depth of the ileum and the crypt in the cecum.
Butyric acid has also been shown to exert powerful anti-inflammatory effects both in vitro and in vivo.
Its immunoregulatory and anti-inflammatory activity is presumably based on topical inhibition of inflammatory mediators in the epithelium.
The ability of butyrate to decrease the concentrations of pro-inflammatory cytokines such as Interleukin 8 (IL-8) and tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) has been widely documented ".
These benefits were also important in subjects suffering from irritable bowel syndrome who, following rectal administration of butyric acid during an acute phase, saw symptoms reduced.
"Some anti-inflammatory effects of butyrate have also been observed in the treatment of ulcerative colitis and proctitis." (19-24)
According to Phyllis A. Balch, author of Prescription for Nutritional Healing, butyric acid is "a monounsaturated fatty acid [which] reduces inflammatory conditions, reduces infiltration of undigested food particles and helps in repairing the mucosal wall" (5 ).
Brado Butter Ghee Grass Fed contains 4% butyric acid.
4. The ghee grass fed may be able to help you lose weight.
Above we have described the cardio-vascular protection qualities of CLA, but in addition to this it has also been shown to help prevent weight gain and aid in weight loss.
According to one study, CLA supplementation in overweight participants showed significant weight loss over a six-month period. (6)
Further studies are needed, but if you hope to lose weight, replacing highly processed rancid vegetable oils with grass-fed ghee can be a good starting point.
5. Butter Ghee grass fed is more versatile in the kitchen
Another important difference to keep in mind is the smoking point: that of classic butter is much lower than that of olive oil, which is why it should not be used for frying, as is sometimes recommended.
This does not apply to our Ghee butter, which contains less water and is resistant to higher temperatures than classic butter, without the risk of burning everything.
In fact, the Ghee butter has a point of smoke at 250 degrees, while the whole butter burns at about 130 degrees. With Ghee butter it is therefore possible to fry and brown food more efficiently.
How to use ghee in the kitchen?
The answer is very simple, because ghee can be used as is normally done with butter.
The Ghee butter can therefore become the basis for the sauces for ZERO CEREALI pasta, in the preparation of pasta dedicated to the preparation of paleo-cakes, even salted (we recommend a lot of moderation with regard to paleo-sweets, that should be taken only occasionally or on special occasions).
BRADO can therefore be added to main courses such as meat and fish and used in long cooking such as stews or stews.
Coffee Bullet Proof
It is a mixture made very famous by Dave Asprey, which promotes lipid metabolism and is composed of a drink made from blended coffee with ghee grass fed butter and a special oil produced from coconut, that is MCT (acids medium chain fats, with a high concentration of C-8 / C-10 *).
It certainly makes it arrive at lunchtime without being hungry and puts you in a state of excellent mental concentration.
Dave Asprey, the American food guru who popularized the idea of putting ghee grass fed butter in coffee, took inspiration from Tibetans who, at six thousand meters above sea level, put yak butter (a local cattle) in tea, to prepare for the climb.
In all the recent bulletproof food theories a fixed point is that fats (banned unfairly for decades, as we have already explained several times), do much less harm than sugar and very refined or processed foods.
The principle that bulletproof coffee would work is based on the provocation of a positive metabolic alteration, that is ketosis: therefore pushing our organism to a blood sugar deficiency pushes it to draw on stored fat reserves.
By the same principle, therefore, this mixture of pure coffee, butter and coconut MCT oil (which contains no refined sugars or complex carbohydrates) would allow the metabolism to effectively affect the fat reserves.
How to prepare bulletproof coffee
250 ml of coffee obtained from grains of a single origin or even better than a single plantation, possibly with low toasting and cultivated over 1200 meters;
25 g of ghee butter fed grass produced from cows entirely grazed and fed with grass and not with cereals;
30 ml of MCT oil (medium chain fatty acid), or coconut oil
Pack BRADO Grass Fed Butter: 430 grams - 530 ml.
How to properly store the BRADO Ghee Grass Fed
The two things that compromise our product are water and sunlight.
Always store BRADO Ghee Grass Fed in a container with a good airtight seal in the dark.
This is why it is best not to store it in the refrigerator if you use it often.
When opened in contact with hot air, the water condenses on the clarified butter and causes oxidation.
BRADO Ghee Grass Fed will last 2-3 months if you keep it in an airtight container.
If stored in the refrigerator, without opening it, the clarified butter can last up to a year.
