You're getting premium organic coconut oil blended with Pepe Saya's cultured ghee. Plain grass fed ghee is also available.
A healthy source of saturated fats.Ghee sourced only from grass-fed cows for a healthier fatty acid profile (see our infographic showing the effect of grass vs grain feeding on the quality of the resulting food.) Benefit from a favourable omega 3:6 ratio and a higher yield of butyrate, CLA's and significant levels of Vitamins A, K and E which are not available from grain-raised cattle. Beta-carotene is a Vitamin A precursor and is only present in animals fed a natural grass diet for the duration of their lives.
99% Lactose & Casein Free. Ghee is made by heating butter to evaporate the water and skimming off the milk solids that rise to the surface. The remaining clarified butter is then double strained through a fine filter colander which removes any remaining impurities and leaves us with a pure and intensely flavourful sweet and nutty ghee which is usually 99% free of potentially inflammatory lactose or casein. A true superfood, it is perfect to try for those of us unafraid of saturated fat and want to taste something other than coconut oil.
Lauric Acid. A medium chain triglyceride (MCT) Coconut Oil is around 60% MCTs with 50% of that being lauric acid. So coconut oil is a great complement to ghee which contains only trace amounts of MCTs. MCTs and Lauric acid in particular is the most inhibitory saturated fatty acid against gram-positive organisms (That means it is antimicrobial) (ref)
High Smoke Point.This is the temperature at which water, free fatty acids, and short-chain degradation products of oxidation arise. Because the milk solids have been removed, ghee has a high smoke point of 230 degrees. Raw Coconut Oil has a smoke point of 160 degrees, but when blended with ghee, the overall smoke point is naturally raised. perfect for sautes, stir fries, baked goods and your Bulletproof Coffee.
Fresh and Local. Pepe's kitchen is just a 10 minute drive away from us, so we are able to order in small quantities which means you're always going to be receiving Coconut Ghee that was made no more than 2 weeks ago.
Long shelf life (and great for travelling)Coconut Ghee is shelf stable for at least 6 months. Does not require refrigeration, but you can for longer preservation.
Fuels your brain. Use coconut ghee in your Bulletproof Coffee instead of Butter to help get into ketosis. Ghee is twice as rich in medium and short chain fats compared to butter. You also get the added benefit of Lauric Acid from the coconut oil.

Why Grass Fed is Better:
Rani and Kansal showed that dietary cow ghee compared to soybean oil down-regulates the enzyme activities responsible for carcinogen activation in liver and up-regulates carcinogen detoxification activities in liver and mammary tissues -http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3510893/
Sharma et al found that the data available in the literature do not support a conclusion of harmful effects of the moderate consumption of ghee in the general population. But they did point out that factors that may be involved in the rise of cardiovascular disease include: the increased use of vegetable ghee which contains 40% trans fatty acids, psychosocial stress and altered dietary patterns. Research findings in the literature support the beneficial effects of ghee outlined in the ancient Ayurvedic texts and the therapeutic use of ghee for thousands of years in the Ayurvedic system of medicine. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22131700
In a rodent study, Kumar MV et al showed that Arachidonic acid, a key inflammatory intermediate in the process of atherosclerosis, was decreased by 65% in serum lipids when ghee was used as the sole source of fat at a 10% level, compared to controls.
A study on a rural population in India showed a significantly lower prevalence of coronary heart disease in men who consumed higher amounts of ghee. High doses of medicated ghee decreased serum cholesterol, triglycerides, phospholipids, and cholesterol esters in psoriasis patients. There were significant improvements in the patients’ psoriasis symptoms as well. MAK-4, a herbal mixture containing ghee, increased the resistance of LDL to oxidation in hyper-lipidemic patients and had no effect on levels of serum total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, or triglycerides in these patients. Other mixtures containing ghee have shown hepato-protective effects,anticonvulsant activity, effects on enhancement of memory, and enhancement of wound healing.- http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3215354/

Mike M, Kitchen by Mike "Pepe makes products that chefs prefer to use. Why? Because they taste great. That’s the bottom line. Pepe Saya Ghee is clear and delicious, just like good clarified butter should be."
Liz Posmyk (Bizzy Lizzy)"Our visit commenced with a short discussion about ghee, followed by a sensory exercise where we sniffed the aroma of three different ghee varieties. One is a supermarket standard and the smell is ordinary, as in 'meh'. The second is apparently India's finest ghee. There is a curious hint of something almost like kerosine to this one. The third smelled sweet and fresh. To my delight, Pepe said he had made it himself."
Andrew Weil "You're correct that my thinking on saturated fat has evolved. One catalyst was a scientific analysis of 21 earlier studies, which showed "no significant evidence" that saturated fat in the diet is associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease."
Chris Kresser "Ghee is clarified butter, and it’s popular in Indian cooking. Because the milk solids have been removed, it’s very low in lactose and is almost entirely fat – mostly saturated. I tend to use ghee to brown meat and sautee garlic and onions when I make soups or stews, and I sometimes scramble my eggs in it."

Try coconut ghee instead of butter in your Bulletproof Coffee - a unique and delicious treat. Some of us enjoy using coconut oil instead of MCT oil. Technically, it's no longer Bulletproof Coffee. MCTs are needed for the ketones they are fuelling you with. Because it's a richer taste, you will need to use less ghee than you normally would butter.
