An earthy tasting ghee with antioxidant properties, Gold Standard can be used for sautéing vegetables, making golden milk or melting on popcorn.
To make our Gold Standard Ghee, we use Certified Organic and non-irradiated turmeric and black pepper. Turmeric root is traditionally used in Ayurveda and is known to be good for digestion, skin problems, and inflammation. Combining turmeric with ghee and black pepper increases the bioavailability of curcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric). Although modern medical research has recently proven the health benefits of consuming turmeric, Ayurvedic medicine has been aware of the root's benefits for over five thousand years.
100% Certified Organic Ingredients
A Lactose-Free Alternative to Butter
Lee's Ghee is proudly made in Quebec, Canada, which is renowned for its small dairy farms. The cows are pastured during the warmer months, when the temperature allows, and have a diet of mainly grass, hay, fodder and silage. The cows' diets are free from hormones, pesticides, herbicides and antibiotics all year round. Our Ghee is Certified Organic, and all of our processing techniques and equipment from farm-to-jar adheres to rigorous Canadian organic standards. It is very important to consume organic ghee as any toxins in the cows' diets will accumulate in the milk fat.
Lee's Ghee is made by simmering butter on low heat for anywhere between 8 to 12 hours, depending on the size of the batch. Using low heat ensures that the delicate fats and fat-soluble vitamins in the ghee remain don't get denatured or destroyed. When the ghee is ready, the milk solids from the butter have completely separated from the ghee and caramelized, which gives the ghee a delicious, nutty flavour. The ghee is then strained twice to remove all milk solid residues. While the ghee is still warm, we infuse it with other organic ingredients such as turmeric, vanilla and maple, and then hand pour the ghee into jars. The entire process to make a jar from start to finish takes 2 full days.
We use a carefully curated selection of premium, Certified Organic ingredients from around the world to create our infused ghee flavours. We strive to support organic farmers and local producers whenever possible, and are working to create direct relationships with growers and suppliers. We believe in using all-natural, wholesome ingredients that are good for both people and the planet.
Ingredients: organic butter, organic thyme, organic oregano, organic sumac, French grey sea salt.
Ghee is extremely versatile, like coconut oil, and can be used for everything from cooking healthy meals, to ancient self-care and beauty rituals, to maintaining your oral health.
The most common application of ghee is right in the kitchen. Take advantage of its wonderful flavour and high smoke point to create healthy dishes at home. Aside from cooking, ghee can be added to cooked rice and other grains, melted on popcorn and vegetables or spread on toast.
Ghee is very moisturizing and can be applied to your hair as a deep conditioning mask, or rubbed into chapped or dry skin or lips as a nourishing moisturizer. You can also combine essential oils such as rose, or sandalwood with ghee.
Ayurveda recommends doing a daily self massage (called abhyanga) for overall good health. To do a self massage, simply melt some ghee in a small pan and rub it over your body, using long strokes on the arms and legs, and circular motions around the joints. You can also rub some warm ghee into your feet before bed to help you sleep soundly.
Ghee can be used in place of coconut oil for an ancient Ayurvedic practice called "oil pulling". This practice involves swishing one tablespoon or so of ghee in the mouth for approximately 5-10 minutes, which literally pulls out toxins lodged in the gums and mouth.
