Update Key Ghee is no longer producing this product. BUT Bulletproof are now producing their own amazing Grass-fed Ghee and we’ve got it here in Australia!!
We’ve searched long and hard and we have found it. The most amazing Ghee available and we are launching it today.
Biodynamic organic ghee – Australian, non-homogenized, and pure.
Look, even Dave Asprey (the “Bulletproof Exec” himself) is a fan:
Is there Bulletproof® Ghee in Australia?
No, Dave Asprey has been unable to obtain enough Kerrygold butter. He cannot even make a regular supply of Bulletproof® Ghee for the North American market.
Is there an Australian ghee which meets or exceeds the Bulletproof® standards?
Key Ghee, one Australian ghee manufacturers thinks so. On October 3, 2014 they reached out to Dave via Facebook to ask about what Australian butter is Bulletproof®.
Dave Asprey via facebook wrote – I’ve had that biodynamic butter in Sydney. Some of the best on earth! October 3, 2014 at 2:34pm.
Dave was referring to the unsalted biodynamic butter that B.-d. Farm Paris Creek (Paris Creek) produce in South Australia. From this point on Key Ghee decided this was the only butter they would use. Previously, they had supply issues and were forced to use butter from Organic Dairy Farmers.
Does ghee support a ‘Bulletproof lifestyle’?
Key Ghee supports a ‘Bulletproof lifestyle’ as it provides a high quality versatile fat which is both nutrient dense and free of poisons. The Paris Creek cow’s diet has been developed since 1987 in order to create a dairy cow with superior health which in turn provides outstanding quality milk.
Although Paris Creek cows are not 100% grass fed, as they are fed certified organic hay to help provide healthy digestion and provide fibre. At milking time they are also fed a handful of organic barley. This gives the cows, strength, protein and bone structure. This is a world away from the conventionally grown or GMO grains fed to cows that are far from Bulletproof.
The cows at Paris Creek are are put on a fresh strip of pasture or grazing land each day. This means that they graze on grass land which has fresh nutritious grass that has not been infested with cows-manure nor has it been urinated on.
The pasture is managed to incorporate a large variety of grasses and herbs to provide optimum grazing. Each cow normally lives for about 16 years and produces on average 17 to 18 litres of milk per day. When compared to conventional cows this can seem small.
So, we reached out to Key Ghee and asked them a few more questions.
Is all ghee created equal?
When looking to purchase ghee or making it at home the key things to be aware of are:
Is it made from Australian biodynamic/organic grass fed dairy?
This is important because the integrity of food is compromised the further it travels. In this day and age we think it is also important to support Australian farmers. Organic is very important with something like butter or ghee because it’s a highly concentrated form of food.
This means if it has anything good or bad in it (such as agricultural chemicals from conventional farming), the benefit or consequences are amplified.
Studies have shown that organic dairy has higher levels of nutrients than cows cared for conventionally.
We would not use non organic butter as our understanding of chemicals and pesticides is that they are normally stored in fat and seeing though butter is a concentrated form of fat, non organic butter in not something we would use.
That being said we are very lucky in Australia because of our climate, our cows can be outdoors eating a diverse pasture all year round. This is not the case for many other countries. We can have drought problems however most dairy farms are located in areas less likely to be affected by droughts.
Has the milk been homogenized?
The homogenization process is a by product of the industrialization of the dairy industry. There are mixed views regarding if it is harmful or not. We believe in the precautionary principle. Therefore on the side of caution we think is it better to leave out processes which are not required.
Is it free from artificial colours and preservatives?
This a given. If you are still eating food with artificial colours and preservatives we suggest you consider researching this matter right now.
Is it stored in glass?
Properly cleaned food grade glass is a better alternative to plastic which is the most common form of packaging. Plastics have been linked to all types of health problems.
Even BPA free plastics are not always safe.
There is also the fact that glass can be reused in the home and it can be recycled without losing its integrity unlike plastic.
Is it made without chemicals?
In todays world there are so many poisons one needs to avoid. Commercial soaps have all types of strange things added to them which can be harmful to our bodies. Even most tap water in Australia now contains harmful neurotoxins such as fluoride
At Key Ghee we aim to set the standards in Ghee.
This means Key Ghee is:
● Made from biodynamic/organic Australian dairy.
● High in fat soluble vitamins.
● Jars are cleaned and washed with unfluoridated water.
● GMO free.
● Made on the Waxing or Full Moon.
● Not homogenized.
● Free from artificial colours and preservatives.
● Free from plastic packaging.
● Australian made and owned.
● Gluten Free
● Made with care.
Key Ghee is made according to the method detailed in the book “Ayurveda – A Practical
Guide The Science of Self Healing” by Dr. Vasant Lad. However we also blend the
biodynamic stirring method and trivium method to create an oil that truly has no equal.
