Saturated fat


I know, but it's a damn site healthier than coconut oil that people think is actually healthy. Ghee has 65% saturated fat, which is about 2/3rds of that in coconut oil, and 89% of that saturated fat is medium or short chain, not the long chain bads ones. Coconut oil is almost all long chain even though people think lauric acid is a medium chain.

​Why don't you just use olive oil or rapeseed oil? Both are much healthier. I know in parts of the world olive oil is not available or too expensive but rapeseed oil and rice bran oil are still affordable and much more healthy . Eating this is Invitation to coronary heart disease. Guess seeing a cardiologist should be next on your list

I saw a cardiologist earlier this year because I was worried about my resting heart rate because it's 41 beats a minute. Turns out it was due to weight loss and running an average of 13km a day, which is nothing compared to real runners.

I use olive oil for pretty much everything but ghee when I make garlic naans. My point was you just can't point the finger at saturated fat and say it's bad any more - it's all about the composition of the saturated fat. Depending on the chain length it can be a clogging horror or be processed like a carbohydrate, that's why I mentioned it. Coconut oil which is touted as good is absolutely terrible, butter and ghee are nowhere near as bad. All of the fats are high in calories, which we clearly know, but there's more to it than just how fat they'll make you.

41bpm you deserve respect, without researching I believe the pro cyclists have 35bpm resting heart rate which is incredible.
I have never tried ghee butter before. Heat

Well, I'd have thought it was pretty obvious that if you eat foods high in bad cholesterol and don't do enough exercise than your risk of accumulating that bad cholesterol in your arteries increases and as does the risk of you developing serious complications if you don't do anything about it.

Have you ever put butter on a Pop Tart?

​If you have ever been to places in Asia , where this stuff is made and eaten, most people die of heart attack, heart disease and heart bypass surgery are so common. It would not give you cancer but heart attack is a definite certainty.

Is that at Kingston Park store???

Seriously, ghee has a long shelf life and doesn't need refrigeration, and that's not because of additives, but because the bits of butter that go rancid have been removed

Homemade ghee lasts 3 months out of the fridge and a year in

Everyone jumping straight in with the 'cholestorol'. What are you guys doing, eating it with a spoon straight out of the tub? Ghee is clarified butter, therefore a lot of the saturated fat is not there. You don't use this to deep fry, but cooking as you normally would using as little oil or ghee necessary is probably healthier than genetically modified corn/sunflower/rapeseed oil.

Good deal. As for the health aspects, everything in moderation. Have a balanced diet, don't eat too much and do some form of exercise should allow you to enjoy eating ghee. If you want a proper authentic punjabi experience, then ghee is the way to go.

I just ripped this from an old post. Prof. Clare Collins's sigh should make her a candidate for a Nobel prize.

As with all things this is going to be fine to use in moderation but … As with all things this is going to be fine to use in moderation but don't for one second believe any of the health claims. It's over 90% saturated long-chain fats, the bad fats. The stuff that's healthy in it is so tiny that it's like saying my doner kebab and chips is healthy because I had a slice of tomato on it. Lard has a third of the saturated fat of coconut oil.Professor Clare Collins talks about coconut oil here - go to 36:40, but for more info on fats start at 32:50. The whole podcast is great.

At least finish the quote. Then again, I guess it doesn't sound as bad if it's finished. (_;)

" CTSU has received funding from the pharmaceutical industry to conduct randomized trials, including trials of statin therapy, but this work is conducted independently of the source of funding and the trials are sponsored by the University of Oxford.”

If you're going to simply dismiss valid criticisms of a single article with the shill gambit, then I can dismiss this article with the same logic. The paper was mostly written by members of THINCS, which is potentially an undeclared conflict of interest as it is a substantial source of bias, and the contributions of each member isn't declared in this open access journal article. Open access journals can be somewhat unreliable because anyone can print anything as long as it's somewhat coherent after paying a fee. A couple of the authors have books related to the subject so again there is the potential for some bias and this COI is undeclared.

Regardless, we should of course ignore the other experts who made a comment and didn't have a conflict of interest and the wealth of evidence that contradicts this single article.
