Can we use ghee instead of Olive oil for cooking?

Question: Can we use ghee instead of Olive oil for cooking?? Heard there are lots of health benefits if we use ghee. Like food absorption is good, smoke point is high etc. Can you please throw some light on this topic?

Answer: Which oil is better or is This Oil is better than that oil or is Ghee a better choice is a straight question but I may not have a straight answer.

Based on your health conditions, seasonal a
vailability , what food you are cooking/preparing, sentiments and practices oils should be considered. Example: A cardio vascular patient who is a STRICT vegan can obtain the benefits of fish oil from Fruit pressed Oilve oil. For someone who wants to improve Their skin condition can consider coconut oil. Salads taste best with olive oil dressing than ghee, Olive oil is very expensive than ghee Etc factors…


Now, for a healthy individual, Its better to change their Fats/Oils every month so they get the benefits of ALL vitamins and Nutrition Fats have to ofeer. Ghee, Coconut, olive, Rice barn, groundnut. I dont wanna get into too much science of saturated and unsaturated fats, risks etc. As long as you are limiting your Fat intake to less than 25% of your over all calories , Limiting your trans fats feel free to chose any oil (If No Health conditions Prevail).

Ina Head-Head contest between Olive oil-Ghee:

on average 1 tablespoon of olive oil has about 13 grams of fat and 117 calories while Ghee has 112 Calories with 13 Grams of fat. So feel free to switch between both.The benefit of ghee in comparison with butter is that people who find difficulties with dairy proteins will experience less discomfort with ghee. Ghee is rich in saturated fats, conjugated linoleic acid, and more. Olive oil is rich in monounsaturated oils with a small number of saturated fats and polyunsaturated fats.
The typical advice is to cook with ghee rather than olive oil as ghee has a smoke point of 482 degrees Fahrenheit whereas olive oil is lower at around 410%. Mostly is the cost associated where people suggest a dairy option for cooking. If cooking on low-heat perhaps either is ok but at a higher heat, you may wish to use ghee instead.
Based upon the nutrition philosophy that you choose, it will help you determine the quantities of each that you will use, but ultimately both will serve a benefit in moderate proportions
