At EatLuv, we are serious about quality – and we use the crème de la crème (pun intended) of grass-fed butter to make our clarified butter (ghee):

  1. EatLuv clarified butter is made with one extremely high quality ingredient: 100% grass-fed organic butter. We add no fillers, preservatives, stabilizers or additives of any kind in any part of our process.
  2. Our butter is sourced from sustainable, organic, non-GMO American family farms.
  3. Our source butter is made from non-homogenized milk and churned the old-fashioned way in single batches as opposed to the continuous batch method.
  4. Our process is truly artisanal and traditional, and we believe in quality over quantity. We cook the butter in single batches over an open flame on low heat to remove all moisture and milk solids.
  5. We are transparent about our quality and ingredients. We are committed to providing you with the absolute highest quality, farm-to-table food.
  1. Clarified butter is naturally lactose-free and extremely low in casein, which makes it a perfect cooking oil for lactose-intolerant folks or those with a sensitivity to casein or whey, the proteins found in dairy. Our clarified butter is lab-tested to ensure that the lactose and casein are both below the detectable limit. 
  2. Clarified butter is ideal for high-heat cooking (clarified butter has a smoke point of close to 485℉) — this means it will not oxidize and won’t break into free radicals like other oils do when heated. It also won’t burn as easily as regular butter.
  3. Since all the milk solids and moisture are removed, clarified butter is shelf-stable and perfect for traveling: it does not need to be refrigerated. It’s the perfect cooking oil for every day but is also ideal for vacations, college dorms, camping, and other places where you want to cook on the go.
  4. Clarified butter is super versatile in the kitchen; it can be used for both cooking and baking. Actually, over the course of history, clarified butter has also been used as a moisturizing base for many beauty products!
  5. Our clarified butter tastes incredibly delicious! Everyone who has tried cooking with it has loved the taste and smell as well as the wonderful buttery flavor it adds to food.  
  1. EatLuv clarified butter is a legitimate superfood: since it is the concentrated butterfat, it is especially rich in fat-soluble Vitamins A, K2, D and E. These vitamins are vital for eye, bone, dental and brain health, and for building a strong immune system. This makes clarified butter a nutrient-dense food that is excellent for expecting or nursing mothers and developing babies as well.
  2. Clarified butter has the highest known levels of dietary butyric acid (3-4%), which is not present in other oils. Butyric acid (also called butyrate) is an essential short chain fatty acid that is responsible for boosting the immune system, improving digestion and proper absorption of nutrients, regulating bowel movements, and supporting good bacteria in the intestinal tract while keeping bad bacteria at bay¹. In healthy digestive systems, beneficial intestinal bacteria convert food fibers into butyric acid, which is beneficial for digestion and absorption of other foods. So, consuming clarified butter can provide this necessary support for the gastrointestinal tract. This is especially helpful for modern diets full of refined foods and sugar, which have left our guts leaky and ineffective at absorbing nutrients properly. In fact, oral butyrate supplements are often recommended as a means to improve symptoms of Crohn’s and other inflammatory bowel diseases².
  3. Clarified butter from exclusively pasture-raised cows is also a great source of conjugated linoelic acid (CLA). According to one study, grass-fed dairy had 500% more CLA than dairy from cows on a typical diet with supplementary grain³. CLA has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that have been found to be beneficial for managing various lifestyle-related health conditions, for improving metabolism, and for promoting fat loss⁴.
  4. Grass-fed cows produce dairy that is plentiful in omega-3 essential fatty acid⁵, and with an excellent balanced 1:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids. This is important for trying to rebalance omega-6 and omega-3 intake, which should be consumed in more comparable quantities than the typical American diet that has a ratio of 15:1 or more. Studies have shown that a balanced ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 is a key component of an anti-inflammatory diet⁶. In fact, a diet rich in omega-3 fats has been shown to be cardioprotective and “improve endothelial function, lower blood pressure, and significantly lower triglycerides”⁷.
  5. Clarified butter consists of short and medium chain fatty acids which are easily digested and quickly absorbed by the body. This makes it an accessible source of energy that is not likely to be stored, thereby supporting healthy weight loss and helping regulate metabolism as compared to other types of fats⁸. Athletes find that adding clarified butter to their diets is helpful in providing quick energy and recovering from workouts.
