Introducing Our Pure, 100% Grass-Fed Ghee


By Dr. Tom Cowan

As our product line at Dr. Cowan’s Garden begins to widen, we are exploring the concept of foundational foods. Everyone needs a source of healthy fats. While this is particularly true for women and children, no human being can truly thrive on a no-fat diet.

With fat consumption, the quality of the fat is everything. Animals store toxins and unwanted chemicals in their body fat, and the fat in the milk of mammals is a frequent source of these unwanted chemicals. Although few truly pristine sources of food exist today, we believe we have found a source of ghee, the clarified fat from cow’s milk, that is as pure a fat as there is. 

Ghee is an ancient food, revered in Indian culture and the practice of Ayurvedic medicine. Herbs and other medicines were often dissolved in ghee, and the ghee was the vehicle for the absorption of the medicine. Ghee is loaded with fat-soluble vitamins and health-giving essential fatty acids. Traditional Indian culture’s homunculus, or universal medicine, was the daily consumption of a big helping of ground turmeric dissolved in warmed ghee. Ghee is safe for those who are lactose intolerant as the lactose is removed during the cooking process. It is tolerated by almost everyone, safe for almost everyone, and nutritious for almost everyone. Along with lard, butter and coconut oil, ghee is the most used fat in our household.

Our ghee comes from 100 percent grass-fed pastured animals. The animals are tested to have the A2/A2 genetics, meaning, no potentially harmful opiates are in the ghee. Our ghee is hand made in small batches, using traditional processing techniques that preserve that natural goodness in the fat. It can be used raw or in virtually any cooking technique because of its high-heat stability. Ghee is a foundational food, one that we are thrilled to be able to offer our wonderful friends and customers.

    Hello Shawn,

    Thank you for your comment. Regarding your A2A2 question. Casomorphines are the breakdown product of casein in A1 milk. Casomorphines essentially have opiate-like activity which, especially for those with leaky gut can be harmful as it would transfer to the blood stream. However, due to a single amino acid difference in A2 milk the casein does not form Casomorphines when broken down.

    You can find out more by reading “Devil in The Milk” Dr. Cowan wrote the forward to this book.
