BENEFITS OF A2 GHEE
Ghee, an Indian name for clarified butter, is seen as an ancient Indian solution to almost all health or skin-related problems. We all can certainly remember our grandmothers insisting on us eat homemade ghee on hot ‘ chapatis’ or ‘dal’. At that time most of us tried to avoid it because we either were dieting or we were afraid of increasing cholesterol due to western influence. However, some recent researches have come forward to prove the health benefits of our desi, Indian ghee; which the Western world likes to call A2 ghee.
We will start with understanding the general terminologies used in this field like “A1 beta-casein” and “A2 beta-casein”. What are they exactly that the dietitians and scientists from the whole world are going crazy with? These both are the proteins of milk, which makes 80% of the total protein content of milk. Regular milk contains both proteins, however conscious production of A2 milk at Gosattva contains more A2 beta-casein protein.People have got to know more about these in recent years when a foreign company did extensive research and proved that A1 beta-casein protein is harmful to human bodies. Heavy use of A1 quality ghee has shown some hazardous impacts on human bodies such as increasing cholesterol levels or increasing weights due to extensive fats.
Due to the years of cross-breeding done on a large scale on cows to produce a greater amount of milk, almost all types of cows started producing milk with high A1 protein. However, the Gir cow, which is the desi Indian native breed of cow, is a rich source of A2 beta protein. We, at Gosattva, take this as our base for creating desi pure ghee made from the milk of desi Gir cows. Our production of A2 ghee is done by organic methods, which sustains all the original qualities of desi ghee and its health benefits nonetheless. Desi unadulterated ghee is naturally tastier and has a grainy texture.
