Nutritionally,what is the difference between ghee and high vitamin butter oil?

I use an organic ghee from grass-fed cows. The ghee is cooked at very low temperatures. I came across high vitamin butter oil at WAPF, but can't find any informational on the actual nutritional value of high vitamin butter oil. My undestanding is that they are both casein free, lactose free, both contain the fat souble viatmins A,D,K. Tha only two differencs that I can find is that the high vitamin butter oil is not heated and that it sells at a riiculously high price. Can anyone point more toward some hard numbers on the nutrional value of each?

In my experience I can say that supplementing with HVBO every day has nothing but positive effects, but cooking with ghee leads to all sorts of indigestion. I tolerate HVBO but not ghee

Also the color of ghee and HVBO is slightly different, HVBO is more amber, which would probably indicate a different amount of Vitamin A in the butter oil.

They don't exist. Ghee is for cooking, HVBO is made from cows who feast on rapidly growing grass (they're led out to pasture as soon as grass starts popping up post-winter.) It's a "seasonal" food, that just happens to have a long shelf life so they can sell it all year round.
