EASY TO LOVE AND UNBELIEVABLY DELICIOUS!
The smoke point is the temperature at which an oil begins to burn and smoke.Not only does heating a cooking fat above its smoke point put it at a greater risk of hitting its flash point and causing a fire, but it also breaks down important phytonutrients and causes the fat to oxidize and form harmful free radicals.
Unfortunately, most cooking oils with a high smoke point are less-than-stellar for your health. Canola oil, peanut oil, corn oil and soybean oil are usually genetically modified and also often partially hydrogenated to increase their stability.
Nan's Clarified Butter, on the other hand, is an excellent choice for cooking because of its high smoke point and beneficial effects on health. The smoke point of is 485 degrees Fahrenheit, which is much higher than the smoke point of butter at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. This means that you can easily use our butter for baking, sauteing and roasting without the risk of destroying the important nutrients that it contains.
IT'S FREE OF LACTOSE AND CASEIN
One of the best benefits is that it’s free of lactose and casein protein. Some individuals have a milk allergy, which may stem from a heightened sensitivity to casein, and others may be hypersensitive to lactose. For individuals with a casein allergy, the reaction may include swelling of lips, mouth, tongue, face or throat; hives; or congestion.
Those with a lactose intolerance have a difficult time digesting the milk sugar lactose, but symptoms are generally much less dangerous than a casein allergy. Symptoms of lactose intolerance may include bloating, flatulence, nausea, vomiting, gurgling and cramps. The majority of people who have sensitivities to either casein or lactose don’t have an issue with Nan's Clarified Butter, as these elements have been removed through skimming and straining.
IT HAS A STRONG, BUTTERY FLAVOR
By removing the milk solids and water from butter, it's left with a stronger, more intense flavor than regular butter. Its taste is also often described as nuttier, richer and deeper than butter. When you’re cooking with Nan's Clarified Butter, you may find that you’ll need even less to get that same satisfying, buttery flavor.
