Ahara Traditional Ghee
A portion of the proceeds goes to A Greener World®: Empowering transparent, humane & environmentally responsible agricultural solutions through 3rd party verification & investment in sustainability.
This authentic, Indian-style ghee is made from artisan cultured butter that is slowly cooked, in the traditional method, over an open flame. Dairy solids are meticulously removed to create a rich taste & texture. We recommend using ghee in place of butter, oils & spreads for a healthy & delicious alternative. Let yourself be creative!
Ahara Rasa makes more than just "clarified butter". According to Ayurvedic text & principles, to be true GHEE, it must be cultured to get the health benefits of improved digestion & increased mental wellness, among others.
Ahara Rasa carefully sources their butter from farms with the highest animal welfare status & is the only ghee company to be Animal Welfare Certified® & Truly Grassfed®. Ahara Rasa ONLY uses cultured butter. Nearly all clarified butter, being sold as "ghee" in grocery stores, including Indian grocery stores, is NOT made from cultured butter, and therefore, may lack the benefits of true ghee.
"Ahara Rasa" (Ah-hah-rah Ruh-Sah) means "the essence of food" in Sanskrit. It is the end product of good digestion and the subtle energy derived from your food, rather than the mass itself.
Ahara Rasa is committed to the traditional process of ghee outlined in the Charak Samhita (the ancient text of Ayurvedic Medicine). This process specifies that ghee should be made from Makhan (cultured butter) where the cream is first turned to yogurt before being churned into butter. Ahara Rasa also makes their ghee in small batches, over open flame rather than in large steam kettles like much of the other ghee on the market. Mantra is chanted & played during the entire process of ghee making to insure a sattvic (peaceful) & energetically healthy product.
We are confident that these fastidious & specific rules by which Ahara Rasa creates their ghee make for a healthier, better-tasting & more medicinally viable ghee that you will feel in every cell of your body & be proud to feed your family.
