What is Fermented Goat Milk Ghee?
Mt. Capra’s Fermented Goat Milk Ghee starts as fresh goat milk harvested from their own grass-fed, pastured goats on their farm in the Pacific Northwest. Before being churned into butter, the cream from the goat milk is cultured in a traditional microflora starter for an extended period of microbial fermentation. During each small-batch simmer, the milk solids, protein, and lactose are removed from the butter leaving behind a pure CULTURED butter oil.
Ghee is completely shelf stable and needs no refrigeration. However, everything lasts longer when stored at cool to cold temperatures, so you can extend the shelf life of your ghee by storing it in the refrigerator. Due to the high content of medium chain fatty acids (MCT’s), goat milk ghee may be semi-liquid at room temperature, however it will quickly solidify in the fridge.
Ghee supports lubrication of hips and joints, and is considered good for bones as it contains Calcium and a high level of Vitamin K2, which plays a role in helping the body avoid blood clots. Also high in Vitamin A. The butyric acid in ghee has been shown to be a highly potent anti-inflammatory agent for the skin, as well as the gastrointestinal tract so this can be great for pups with skin issues or digestive issues. Ghee is also rich in omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids.
