    Which is better for the primal eater? I know that ghee is clarified butter, but what part is taken out of the butter? Fat? I love some ghee. Just ordered 3 16 oz jars off Amazon for 17 bucks. Good deal.

    Clarified means that the solids (protein and carbs) have been removed. It is almost pure fat. Better for cooking than butter due to no solids to form AGEs and with a higher smoke point. It also has valuable fat soluble vitamins (A, K)

    I use ghee for cooking/sauteing (very high smoke point). I use butter as a spread only or melt it over hot foods (e.g. baked sweet potato). I rarely use butter for cooking. It seems to burn pretty quickly in a pan.
