Enjoy the less-is-more nature of ghee.

What is ghee?

Mama's Earth Ghee is made from high-cream, grass-fed, organic cow's milk butter. Our small-batch process involves slowly heating the butter to remove water, followed by gentle heating to trigger the Maillard reaction, which adds a toasted flavor. This process eliminates milk solids while infusing the butter oil with a delightful taste.

Isn’t that clarified butter?

Yes and no. Ghee is a type of clarified butter, but it stands out for Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine. Unlike basic clarifying methods, our ghee-making process ensures complete removal of milk solids, resulting in a beloved nutty, caramelized flavor and a deep golden color.

Is it dairy free?

No, ghee is a dairy product, but it undergoes a process that removes lactose and casein, which are common triggers for dairy allergies. Most individuals with lactose sensitivity can still enjoy ghee without issues.

Shelf-stable means ghee doesn't require refrigeration. It can be stored at room temperature for an extended period, typically 9 to 12 months. To maintain its longevity, avoid water or food contamination while using it.

What is Ayurveda?

Ghee is often associated with Ayurvedic medicine and is used alongside herbal remedies. Ayurveda is an ancient holistic healing system practiced in India. Ayurveda teaches that ghee offers numerous health benefits, making it an integral part of this centuries-old alternative medicine tradition.
