Desi Ghee or Coconut Oil – The Better Choice
Just lately, have fats become less of a stigma when it comes to good health and weight loss. The ongoing discussions amongst health enthusiasts and nutritionists have now shifted from avoiding fats to what kind of fats to consume. The 2 names that have popped up numerous times in these discussions are desi cow Ghee and Coconut Oil.
While both these fats contain essentials that are needed for overall health, let us find out which one of these is a better choice for you.
To start with, a2 Desi Ghee is different from and much more superior as compared to regular ghee. It is made using A2 milk got from desi (humpbacked cows). It is a pure fat with a high smoking point and does not contain beta-casein – this makes it the best choice for people who are less tolerant towards milk and dairy products. You will find that products derived from desi cows (i.e the milk, ghee, and paneer) are easily digestible and do not leave you feeling full and bloated as opposed to regular ghee and other ingredients with fats in them.
Another very important point that most of you have waited to come across is this – Desi Ghee is known to boost sensitivity of insulin and increase metabolism, both of which are important for weight loss – contrary to what most people believe about ghee.
- These are just some of the benefits. Other than this Ghee is great for:
- Improving bone health
- Boosting immunity
- Reducing Inflammation
- Preventing major diseases like diabetes, alzheimers, arthiritis and other cardiac diseases.
- All these factors and more make desi ghee especially beneficial for old people, children, and expecting and new mothers.
- Last but not less significant, is the taste! You can use it for almost every single dish to spruce up the taste and make it more wholesome, comforting, and yummy.

Another option for a fat source, coconut oil is a versatile ingredient used for cooking, hair, and skin.
But, unlike desi ghee, this one has a lower smoking point. This means that when the fats break down it can release free radicals that may lead to oxidative stress.
Another important point to note – coconut oil does not have Desi Ghee’s ability to improve metabolism and burning fats.
When it comes to taste, which for most is THE most important thing – preferably used for making sweet dishes, coconut oil does not go well with most savory dishes as Desi Ghee does.
To sum up, coconut oil is great to apply on the hair and skin, great for oil pulling, and sometimes in the kitchen for those once-in-a-while sweet dish cravings. But if you’re looking for a healthier lifestyle change (one that is tasty too!) for yourself and your family, then we suggest taking the Desi Ghee Road which we can assure you is filled with plenty of goodness.
