Is butter smoke point higher than other cooking oils?

by Pallavi Goswami content writer

Butter is a popular dairy item that has long been associated with the cooking world. Butter smoke point is 150⁰C which is much lower than the clarified version of butter, ghee. There are too many cooking oils available in the market, and they hold different types of characteristics. Ghee or clarified butter is mostly used for high-heat cooking purposes as it has 250⁰C. Butter is suitable for spreading, garnishing or any other low temperature cooking purposes. 


You shouldn't use butter for high temperature cooking as it may produce harmful free radicals. Butter contains a good amount of lactose and casein and when heated over 150⁰C the milk solids start burning. People with dairy-sensitivity should avoid consuming butter and should include ghee as a substitute for butter. 


Ghee is suitable for sauteing, deep frying, baking and any other high temperature cooking. It is loaded with healthy essential fats, vitamins, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Butter is not suitable for a Ketogenic diet but ghee can be added to the Keto, Paleo and any other LCHF diet. Ghee offers some amazing health benefits which are scientifically proven. Grass-fed ghee is the best ghee available in the market. Ghee smoke point is higher than butter smoke point which will give your dish a delicious flavor and make it healthy as well.
