Satva (Sanskrit: सत्त्व) is one of the three Guṇas (tendencies, qualities, attributes), a philosophical and psychological concept developed by the Samkhya school of Hindu philosophy. It means “light," "goodness" and "purity" in Sanskrit. Just like the name our ghee is light to consume and made from Indian Cattle breeds with the goodness of nature required to maintain a pure & healthy life.
Ghee is a class of clarified butter that originated from the Indian subcontinent; and is commonly used in South Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines, traditional medicine, and religious rituals. Ghee has been used for thousands of years, quite literally. It’s truly an “ancient” health food and definitely not a fad. It’s believed to promote both mental purification and physical purification through its ability to cleanse and support wellness.
Desi Ghee benefits the body both inside and out, and is actually used topically to treat burns and rashes as well as to moisturize the skin and scalp. It is most extensively used in Ayurvedic healing practices, due to the nature of goodness.
Ghee is clarified sweet butter, which is simmered longer to bring out butter’s inherent nutty flavor. Traditionally made from original land breeds of buffalo’s or cow’s milk, the process of making ghee removes the water and milk fats, leaving a high-smoke point (meaning that it can be heated to a pretty high temperature before it starts to smoke) fat.
Ghee has a unique nutrition profile without any lactose or casein, but rich in short-chain and medium-chain fatty acids and butyrate. For people who are lactose or casein-sensitive, they can use ghee because the process has removed these allergens. Ghee can last for months, or even years, without refrigeration, which made it very popular throughout history, before modern times and refrigeration.
