Congrats, you're #1 for "butyrophilin ghee" on Google! Ghee probably doesn't have much butyrophilin in it, as the milk proteins are cooked out, but that doesn't mean it's butyrophilin-free. I'd think you're better off avoiding all dairy to avoid... (more)

According to the Vrai website, their dairy comes from cows fed primarily on meadows. Sounds like it's mostly pastured, but they aren't very clear as to whether it's 100% grass fed or not.

Drop some of the ghee and add carbs in, if you can tolerate them. It's not fatty acids causing your problem. You may not be eating enough.
