Is there such thing as raw Ghee?

Asked on October 24, 2016

To make ghee--I know butter is heated to separate the milk solids -- but is it possible to keep the heat low enough that forms milk solids but still keep the butter raw? Just wondering

Not sure why that didn't hit me over the head when I was talking about centrifugation as I'm fairly certain that's how they produce the HVBO.

Gotcha. That is an interesting concept now that you mention it. I guess the only product I know of that fits the bill is Green Pasture's High Vitamin Butter Oil. It's hella pricey, but if you want a food source of all the vitamins that raw butter has, it looks pretty good: http://www.greenpasture.org/public/Products/ButterOil/index.cfm

no concerns really, just thinking "can get all the good stuff from raw butter without the milk proteins".

I guess it might be possible if the water was removed via centifugation. But I have never heard of this method being used to make ghee.

Traditionally, the butter is heated until the water boils off, which takes it to well above 212F, so it would definitely not be considered raw.

What's your concern with heated butter?
