[b]Safety Note: [/b]Although pure clarified butter/ghee does not need to be refrigerated, we recommend you store your ghee in the refrigerator because some milk solids may still be present, which can cause the ghee to become rancid. Use ghee in recipes as you would use regular butter (tablespoon for tablespoon).[br][br][br]Nutrition Note: During the clarification process, the milk proteins are removed, making the ghee virtually free of lactose. This makes it a relatively safe alternative for those who are lactose intolerant.
