Does butter burn or is it safe for high heat cooking methods? Let's discuss the butter smoke point before you add it into your pantry list. Butter is one of the most used dairy staple worldwide which has a milky flavor and creamy texture. The beneficial nutrients and essential nutrients in butter can be lost if you heat butter at a high temperature.

The smoke point of butter is 150⁰ C which is much lower than ghee. You can consider ghee as a substitute for butter which is highly nutritious and recommended for a keto, and paleo diet. The medium chain fatty acids or MCTs in ghee keeps our brain and heart healthy. The smoke point is a certain temperature at which an oil starts to burn and smoke. 

Different oils offer different smoke points. Overheating an oil can release harmful free radicals to the cooked food which is not safe for the human body. Choose your cooking oil wisely. If you are looking for a nutritious cooking oil, pure ghee is the best option for you. It is free from artificial flavor and color. Being made from pure cow milk butter, it's a rich source of fat-soluble vitamins and essential fatty acids. Butter smoke point is much lower than the ghee smoke point.
