Many popular diets and nutrition trends sing the praises of using ghee, but should you be opting for it instead of traditional butter?
First, you might be wondering what exactly ghee is. It is a type of clarified butter that has its milk solids removed after heating. Ghee, which is a more concentrated form of butter, has less lactose than butter and can be stored without refrigeration.
So what do The Doctors think about using ghee?
They note that the calories and the saturated fat levels of ghee are just as high as the levels in butter, explaining ghee's main advantage is for those who have issues with lactose.
As far as taste, ER physician Dr. Travis Stork, dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra, and clinical psychologist Dr. Judy Ho all say they enjoy ghee's distinctive flavor and Dr. Judy feels that when she uses ghee in cooking the food tastes better.
Another thing to consider, the cost of ghee is usually more expensive than butter.
