Would like to know if anyone out there has purchased Ghee online. If so, what company did you buy from and were you happy with the product.

Anyone buy non grass-fed ghee in bulk at Indian stores? Pros and Cons? Any brands we know for sure are or are NOT grass fed? I'm almost positive its not grassfed, but it might be a decent/necessary (affordable/accessible) option for some. (more)

Hello, good question, I cool it down at room temperature for at least 24 hours, there's no rush and yes I reuse the cheesecloths. You can find more info from the ghee experts in an Indian website.

What oil or fats would you recommend for dressings, mashed potatoes, and sauces to someone who cannot have coconut oil or any dairy (including ghee)? Avocado oil? Inexpensive (or about the same price as coconut oil or ghee) is a big plus.

Olive oil for everything. It's good for cooking, don't believe those who say otherwise. Of course, you have to like the flavor of it, which may be a challenge.

I'd say yes, but there's a slight issue. If you use a good oil that won't smoke and isn't full of PUFAs, you'll be fine, the problem is that fried carbs cause the creation of acrylamide which is a carcinogen. I'm not aware of any studies done on... (more)

Ghee is technically butter, which is dairy...I'm one of those people VERY sensitive to dairy, so I'm 100% dairy free. I wonder if grass fed ghee would cause any of the same effects.

The only benefit grass fed ghee has over EVcoconut oil or grass fed beef tallow is the vitamin A. Other than that, I would always go with something else first, which is usually tallow for me.
