We, at Ahara Rasa, make more than just "clarified butter". According to Ayurvedic text and principles, to be true GHEE, it must be cultured to get the health benefits of improved digestion and increased mental wellness, among others.
We carefully source our butter within 100 miles of our kitchen and ONLY use cultured butter. Nearly all clarified butter, being sold as "ghee" in grocery stores, including Indian grocery stores, is NOT made from cultured butter, and therefore, may lack the benefits of true ghee.
"Ahara Rasa" (Ah-hah-rah Ruh-Sah) means "the essence of food" in Sanskrit. It is the end product of good digestion and the subtle energy derived from your food, rather than the mass itself.
Ahara Ghee is committed to the traditional process of ghee outlined in the Charak Samhita ( the ancient text of Ayurvedic Medicine). This process specifies that ghee should be made from Makhan (cultured butter) where the cream is first turned to yogurt before being churned into butter. ARG also makes the ghee in small batches, over open flame rather than in large steam kettles like much of the other ghee on the market. Mantra is chanted and played during the entire process of ghee making to insure a saatvic (peaceful) and energetically healthy product.
We are confident that these fastidious and specific rules by which we create our ghee make for a better tasting, healthier and more medicinally viable ghee that you will feel in every cell and be proud to feed your family. Thank you for supporting artisanal food!
