What's the consensus on ghee? Would it be a good source of fat...like to put on raw meat?

It's not paleo because it's dairy. As far as whether it would be good for you, the best way to answer that would be to try it. Good luck and post your results.

my mom always makes ghee from real cow's milk. it smells divine and tastes the best. i find it more beneficial to put over the dry skin than to eat it. in east, people like to put little ghee to enhance the taste of worm rice, roti , meat, sweet...etc. some people also cook with ghee instead of oil. ghee is not raw food -[.

I could be wrong but im pretty sure just about all ghee is made with heat. Plus its rather difficult to get grass fed ghee.

Ghee is a foul dairy-derived substance produced by heat. There are a lot of myths about ghee such as the outrageous claim that ghee contains no lactose or casein in it whatsoever. Avoid it like the plague!

In future, please do NOT post about non-rawpalaeo foods in the general discussions forum. This topic belongs solely in the Hot Topics forum. I'll move it there now.

I love ghee also but I have raw butter instead now. Not that ghee is bad, I just find raw butter that we make is light and delicious.

Medically in Ayurveda it is used as a carrier for all kinds of herbs and it is also used for certain wasting diseases. It is used as a preparation for the periodic cleansing process prior to Pancha Karma. It is used in quantity in the morning for 3-4 days (depending on the person) to slow down digestion and thereby empty the GI Tract prior to cleaning it.

I would recommend grassfed Kerrygold (unsalted) instead. Delicous!

Is raw grass fed ghee a good option for dipping lean meats into?

Nyet, nein, non!  The grassfed aspect is a waste of time given that ghee is heated and this not healthy, anyway.

Sorry, I kind of automatically assumed all ghee was heated. Still, doesn't matter as ghee contains trace amounts of lactose and casein, despite claims - unless they've miraculously developed some new processing technology?

I've heard about raw butter, but how is raw ghee made?

Is this butter raw?

Yes. X-Factor Gold is produced from 100% unpasteurized milk. No heat is used in the centrifuging process of
the oil. It is heated only up to 96 degrees to liquefy for bottling purposes. At 96 degrees, the enzymes and fatty
acids all remain intact. In addition, the Wulzen factor, and important "anti-stiffness" agent is retained, a
substance found in raw animal fat that is destroyed with pasteurization.

Ghee is simply butter that has been heated so that the milk solids precipitate out.
