Why Desi Ghee is Good for Health?

I have seen people having plain Rotis. I have seen people preparing curries in refined oil. Ask them why? You would get to hear that Desi Ghee is fat, so its best avoided. I have believed in this myth half my life! You read it right, its a myth that Fats make us fat. So, Desi Ghee does not make us fat.

why desi ghee is good for health

Desi Ghee is one of the most misunderstood foods in India. Reason? Marketing vegetable oils as the Hero, HUH HUH.

“Healthy heart”, “Light”, “low cholesterol” and a lot of other adjectives are used in the favour of vegetable oils which could contain trans fats and hydrogenated fats.

In our culture of hundreds of years, Indians have been eating Desi Ghee but were never obese. Why do we see more obesity now? It is because we are misled. The truth is Desi Ghee is healthy and important for Weight Loss.

3 Myths about Desi Ghee

  • Ghee increase cholesterol –

The truth is that Desi Ghee reduces cholesterol since it increases the contribution of lipids for metabolism. Desi Ghee helps you de-stress, feel full, and sleep better.

  • Ghee is fattening –

Desi Ghee has a unique short-chain fatty acid structure. It is lipolytic by nature due to which it breaks down fat.

  • Ghee not heart-healthy –

Are you kidding? Desi Ghee is extremely rich in antioxidants, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), and fat-soluble vitamins like A, E, D.  Desi Ghee has everything needed for a healthy heart.

Why Desi Ghee is Good for Health?

  • Vitamins A, D, E, and K present in Ghee are fat-soluble. This means Ghee helps is to absorb these vitamins.
  • Ghee has MUFA (monounsaturated fatty acids ), which is better than PUFA (polyunsaturated fatty acid) found in oils like corn, sunflower,  cottonseeds oils, etc. Thus Desi Ghee is a better choice than these oils.
  • Ghee does not contain lactose, hence it is safe for lactose-intolerant people.
  • Ghee is made up of short-chain fatty acids that can be digested easily. This nature also helps to break fat.
  • Ghee provides lubrication to muscles and joints.
  • Ghee is free of trans fats, unlike other oils.
  • Ghee is free of salt unlike butter available in the market.
  • Ghee boosts immunity.
  • Ayurveda recommends Desi Ghee because it is good for the whole body.
  • Ghee can be used for cooking at high temperatures, unlike Olive Oil. However, a few people believe that Desi Ghee is best consumed when poured on cooked food before consuming. That’s the reason why our grandparents added ghee in daals before eating or poured on Rotis!
