What is A2 Ghee and its Benefits?
The super healthy primary ingredient for cooking in every Indian household is Ghee. Ghee is recommended for everyone, from children to pregnant woman; our elders and doctors always trust Pure Ghee for its amazing health benefits.
Ghee can be made from cow, buffalo, sheep and goat milk. However, the purest form of Desi Cow Ghee is made from A2 Cow Milk – milk of cows originating in India (Desi Cows).
What is A2 Ghee?
A2 Cow Desi Ghee is the premium quality form of Ghee which is made from Desi Cow Milk using traditional Bilona method – a hand churning method where cow milk is curdled in clay pots and the curd is then hand churned to obtain makhan or butter, butter is then heated at a certain temperature to get the purest form.
Ghee made from Bilona method using A2 cow milk is considered more beneficial than regular Cow Ghee as A2 cow milk does not contain β – casein protein. A1 or β – casein protein has negative effects on people who are lactose intolerant
Pure A2 Desi Cow Ghee made specifically from A2 cow milk, we here at Shahji has 2 varieties of A2 Cow Ghee – made from Sahiwal cow milk and Gir cow milk.

Sahiwal is considered the best cattle and a valuable breed of India and a godsend to humanity as Sahiwal Milk helps in treating various ailments such as diabetes, cholesterol and heart diseases. Because of its high fat content Sahiwal Cow Milk is considered the healthiest of all!
2. Gir Cow
Gir Cow is considered unique breed when compared to others as the cow is famous for their tolerance to various diseases that makes its milk high in price. Gir has high milk production capacity and is premium due to the presence of A2 beta casein in their milk.

What made A2 Cow Ghee so important for us?
Most of the Ghee brands are also doing the same, they add preservatives, colouring agents and stabilizers to get the colour and texture similar to the one made from traditional method. However, Ghee made from high processing machines and adulteration lacks in genuine nutrient content and is somewhat harmful in many ways.
