Desi Cow Ghee vs Buffalo Ghee vs Jersey/HF Cow Ghee
Desi Cow Ghee is a perfect source of many essential vitamins, healthy fats, energy, and a lot more. It has been an important part of Indian cuisine and it’s importance can also be found in our scriptures mentioning Lord Krishna tells about the importance of pure desi cow ghee. In Ayurveda, ghee acts like a perfect medium for the herbs. Ghee also plays an important role in hawan purifying the air and killing harmful bacteria, curing diseases, etc. There are numerous benefits of ghee mentioned in Ayurveda and it is an indispensable part of our cuisine but all these benefits belongs to only pure desi ghee made from milk of only desi cows which are free to graze and eat healthy feed and fodder as per season.
The time has changed and ghee making has become an industry and the results are before us, purity is only in the branding and not in the products.
Today we will talk about this important issue and what products you see in the market labeled as “Desi Ghee” is not at all “Ghee”.
Desi Cow Ghee vs Buffalo Ghee
Do you know ghee was meant to be made from desi cows’ milk?
Why we have other cattle like Buffalo and Jersey/HF in our dairies? One simple answer is profit. Our desi cows don’t give that much milk like Murrah buffalo and other cattle and thus they are almost replaced from our Gaushalas and Dairy Farms and Buffaloes, Jersey and HF(Holstein Friesians) have taken their place.
Let’s talk about buffalo milk.
1. Cow milk is thinner than buffalo milk.
2. Ghee from Buffalo milk is white in color whereas ghee from desi cows are yellowish.
3. Buffalo ghee is heavier than cow ghee in digestion.
4. Composition of buffalo milk is totally different than that of desi cow milk.
5. Fat content is much higher in buffalo milk as compared to desi cow milk.
6. Desi cow milk is easy to digest as compared to buffalo milk.
7. Amount of vitamins found in desi cow milk is much higher than buffalo milk.
8. Desi cow milk promotes optimum growth of brain and bones in children.

Desi Cow Ghee directly from Gaushala to Doorstep
Hope you have got some clarifications about the buffalo ghee vs desi cow ghee. There is not a harm in consuming buffalo ghee or milk but the concept of ghee doesn’t belong to any other cattle except our indigenous desi cows.
Let’s see the difference between desi cow ghee vs crossbreed cows’ ghee such as Jersey and HF.
Desi Cow Ghee VS Jersey/HF Cow Ghee
Before we discuss anything about desi cow ghee and jersey cow ghee or HF cow ghee, we want to tell you that these Jersey and HF are actually not at all real cows. You may not believe this initially but it’s a fact. You can explore the facts in our article about A1 vs A2 milk here.
Ghee made from milk of Jersey or HF or any other such crossbreed may lead to serious health problems. Recent research by a New Zealand company reveals the affects of A1 milk (the milk from these crossbreed cattle like Jersey and HF) and it may lead to Autism, High Blood Pressure, mental disorder, poor development of brain in infants and a lot more. So we highly recommend you and your family to switch to A2 milk and A2 ghee.
Why A1 milk is bad for our health?
1. There are two types of cow’s milk available in the market, A1 and A2 Milk.
2. A2 milk is a healthier choice than regular milk.
3. A1 milk supposedly produces opiate effects resulting in the development of mild to serious medical conditions.
4. Milk has several types of casein and beta casein is the second most common type casein in cow’s milk.
5. Beta-casein comes in 13 different forms.
6. A1 beta-casein can be found on all commercially-prepared milk.
7. Most of the old Indian cow breeds provide A2 milk.
8. A1 milk has a histidine amino acid, while A2 milk has a proline amino acid.
9. A1 milk contains pesky histidine amino acid which creates the peptide BCM-7.
10. A1 milk suppresses the immune system, causes type I diabetes, Coronary Heart Disease, Autism, Schizophrenia, and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
Thus any product made of A1 milk is not recommended.
