4th & Heart Ghee
4th & Heart grass-fed ghee uses the highest quality grass-fed butter, sourced from a cooperative of farms in New Zealand. Grass is naturally high in Vitamins A, D, E, K and CLA.
When asked why one should use ghee instead of butter (or its substitutes) my mind races with thousands of reasons. What first comes to mind are the practical reasons: high heat cooking, culinary inspired flavors, shelf stability, and the “back to basics” approach to eating. Then there are ALL of the health reasons!
4th & Heart grass-fed ghee uses the highest quality grass-fed butter, sourced from a cooperative of farms in New Zealand. Grass is naturally high in Vitamins A, D, E, K and CLA. When the cow’s milk is rich with these vitamins, it goes directly to the butter and therefore, to the ghee. Just how Mom’s nutrition goes to her baby when drinking breast milk!
Let me break it down…
Butter = Milk Solids + Butter Fat + Water
Ghee = Butter – Milk Solids – Water
Water + Milk Solids = 20% of each stick of butter, therefore, ghee is just a higher dose of the good fat found in butter. What’s different about 4th & Heart ghee? Well, we cook it slowly and use fresh ingredients to create flavor profiles that make cooking much more fun and versatile.
Keto Certified 4th & Heart
4th & Heart is an artisanal food brand based in Los Angeles, CA, set on a mission to modernize ancient pantry food staples starting with a line of grass-fed flavored pure spreadable butters known as “ghee”.
4th & Heart is an ode to the Heart Chakra. It’s the intersection where most of us get stuck. We think through everything and we rarely feel our way through it. Our intellect gets in the way. I find the most lasting decisions are heart choices and not hard choices.
