Ghee is clarified butter, sometimes referred to as butter oil. In theory, everything but the fat is removed from ghee, but it’s still dairy, and it can still contain some level of milk proteins and lactose. Complete purification is tricky. Luckily, Nutiva Vegan Ghee has landed to fill the dairy-free void for this rich fat.
Nutiva has offered a butter-flavored oil for quite some time, but their dairy-free ghee alternative goes to the next level. It’s crafted with a blend of steam-refined coconut oil and avocado oil to make it less coconutty, more spreadable and suitable for baking and cooking up to 450°F.
