Any healthy perks?

Plus it’s a good source of omega-3. It originated in India and has been used in traditional cooking methods around the world for thousands of years and prized for its anti-inflammatory, digestive, and therapeutic properties.

Ghee is shelf stable, even after being opened! Ghee has a nutty and rich flavor and is ideal for cooking, with a smoke point (485°F)—higher than butter, coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, and canola oil.
