  • Is Parity Farm Ghee 100% Grass-Fed?

    Does anyone have any experience with this ghee: Purity Farm Ghee, Clarified Butter, 13-Ounce: Amazon.com: Grocery & Gourmet Food

    It's new on Amazon it looks like. The price is unbeatable. I think I may by some. Its organic and it says it comes from pastured cows. Does anyone know if its 100% grass-fed?!

    If some can clarify that it is then I am immediately purchasing!!

    What does ghee taste like? Is ghee better (health and taste) than regular grass fed butter (kerry gold) and coconut oil?

      According to their website the cows are 100% grass fed:

          No, that's just melted butter. Ghee is different - all the solids skimmed off.

            Is this ghee 100% grass fed? (what do they feed them in the winter?) Also, there is another ghee by pure indian foods (on amazon) that is non-homogenized.

              It might be regional but up here in Illinois what you get is clarified/drawn butter which is effectively ghee:

              Clarified butter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

              Might be different around your region though.

                I seem to be missing that. I see the mention of "Grass Fed, Pastured Cows" but that isn't quite the same thing as 100% grass fed. In some pasturing operations, there is supplemental feed available to the cows that is not 100% grass. They are allowed to choose what to eat. So if they're still eating a fair amount of grass, this is still better than grain fed dairy, but its hard to say how much better it is if we don't know what's in the supplemental feed and how much they're relying on it.

                I've bought this ghee at Whole Foods and it sure is tasty. I'm glad to know it's pastured.

                  The Pure Indian Foods ghee is amazing. I buy it directly from their website. It is a bit expensive though. It is pretty much the only fat I cook with. I absolutely detest coconut oil. It is great for high heat cooking since the milk solids have been removed.

                    So it seems as if we are still unsure if its from 100% grass fed cows. The price is extremely reasonable so I want a definitive answer. I guess I will have to give them a call soon!

                        Thanks! I totally forgot about iHerb. So I get 5 bucks off even if I just buy the ghee for $8?

                          I use Purity Farms Ghee. I think it's pretty good. 1 jar lasts me several months at a time.

                            I just bought this ghee today. Did you ever figure out if it is 100% grass fed?

                              I think "clarified" does mean that it has been boiled and skimmed :-)
