Is ghee healthier than butter? Facts to know

by Pallavi Goswami content writer

Is ghee healthier than butter? It is a common query for many. Ghee, also known as clarified butter, derives from butter itself. But their nutritional composition, color, flavor, and uses differ. Some consider ghee a healthier option than butter for a few reasons.

Lactose-free: Ghee is lactose-free, which makes it a better option for people with lactose intolerance or sensitivity. The lactose and casein part has been removed during the clarification process.

Lower in milk solids: Ghee is made by simmering butter and then removing the milk solids, which leaves pure fat behind. This means ghee has a lower content of milk solids than butter, making it less likely to cause inflammation or digestive issues for some people.

Rich in butyrate: Ghee is rich in butyrate, a type of fatty acid with anti-inflammatory properties and supporting gut health. Butyrate has been shown to improve gut barrier function, reduce inflammation in the digestive tract, and improve symptoms of digestive disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Higher smoke point: Ghee has a higher smoke point than butter, which means it can be heated to a higher temperature before it starts to smoke and break down. This makes it a better option for cooking and frying, as it won't burn as easily and produce harmful compounds.

Contains fat-soluble vitamins: Ghee contains vitamins A, D, E, and K, which are essential for healthy bones, immune function, and vision. 

Longer shelf life: Ghee has a longer shelf life than butter because it has had its milk solids and water removed. This makes it less likely to spoil, even when stored at room temperature, and it can last for up to six months without refrigeration.
