Ghee in Ayurveda

According to Ayurveda, gheehas healing benefits of butter without the impurities.

What Is Ghee?
Ayurveda places ghee at the top of the oily foods list.

Ghee is made by heating unsalted butter until it clarifies into its separate components like lactose (sugar), milk protein, and fat. Over a low flame, the moisture is removed, and the sugar and protein separate into curds that sink to the bottom and are later discarded, Suzanne VanGilder reports in Gold Standard.

In India, ghee is a sacred symbol of auspiciousness used medicinally as well as in cooking. It also makes appearances in ancient texts including the Mahabharata, in which it is described as an essence flowing through and sustaining the world.
