Ghee vs Clarified Butter: What are the differences of the two?

by Milkio Foods Grass-Fed ghee from New Zealand

Clarified butter and ghee are the same in use and so many people get confused if they are different or not. There's no doubt that ghee is brown and granular butter - at least the best kind. It's also one of the healthiest fats on the planet, as it's high in Omega-3 fatty acids, as well as vitamin E, which has many health benefits. So, when comparing ghee vs clarified butter - what's the difference?

Clarified butter is a clear, golden fat that has an intensely nutty flavor, similar to that of nutmeg because the milk fat is completely removed.  it enables the ghee to last for much longer periods of time, without going rancid - a benefit that can save you money on your groceries. 

  1. However, when comparing ghee vs clarified butter, ghee usually has a slightly stronger, nutty flavor. This is probably because the ghee is lightly simmered with the milk solids until they become granular in texture.

  2. Clarified butter is free from any kind of milk solids. When the butter is melted the milk solids get separated and at this stage, the mixture is strained to collect the pure golden fat.

  3. Ghee is not completely free from lactose and casein as the milk solids exist in it. If you are a dairy-sensitive person clarified butter is better for you.

  4. Ghee has a granular texture and brown color but clarified butter has a creamy texture and yellow golden color.

  5. Ghee vs clarified butter doesn’t have many differences. If compared on the basis of nutritional value, they are mostly similar. Ghee is most popular in India where it is used as a cooking oil.  If you want to stick with the same taste, you can just use the clarified version.

This was all about the difference between ghee and clarified butter. Looking for a reliable ghee brand? You can try Milkio grass-fed ghee made from 100% grass-fed cow's milk. Milkio ghee is approved by BioGro and USDA certified free from artificial colors and preservatives.
