Not Your Ordinary Ghee
Nutrition Powerhouse: Since we follow the Bilona Padati process and source our milk ethically, our ghee does not contain any harmful cholesterol. Instead, it is packed with potent nutrients like Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, fat-soluble vitamins A, E, and K2.
Akiva’s Vanilla Ghee has an impressive nutrient profile making it a superior substitute for cooking oils and butters. Since it has no water content, our ghee can be kept outside the refrigerator and will still remain fresh for long.
Vitamin A: Ghee is an excellent source of Vitamin A. One serving (2 tbsp) of ghee gives you 15% of your recommended daily intake of Vitamin A.
Consuming a healthy serving of ghee would promote good vision, supple skin and bone health. It also relieves inflammation by fighting the free radicals in your body.
Vitamin E: Fat-soluble Vitamin E is also present in abundance in ghee. Just one serving (2 tbsp) of ghee is enough to satisfy 3% of your recommended daily intake of Vitamin E.
The Vitamin E in ghee helps in balancing cholesterol levels by fighting free radical damage and lowering cholesterol oxidation. The antioxidant properties of Vitamin E also help fight the signs of aging and improve skin elasticity.
Vitamin K2: Vitamin K2 is an important component of the Vitamin K group of compounds. Most foods that contain Vitamin K have more Vitamin K1 than Vitamin K2. Ghee from grass-fed ghee, like ours, is a great source of K2, which is also better absorbed by the body than K1.
Ghee is known to improve heart health. This is because the Vitamin K in ghee prevents calcium deposits from forming in the arteries and causing artery blockages and plaque deposits.
Omega Fatty Acids: Pure ghee is known to have the ideal ratio of Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9 fatty acids. Having a balance between these fatty acids is essential to proper functioning of the body - too much of one fatty acid can lead to a number of symptoms.
Vanilla: Apart from being an excellent substitute for sugar, vanilla is known to have antibacterial properties.
