High-vitamin butter oil and ghee are not the same. Ghee is heated while hv butter oil is not. At least according to FAQ on Green Pasture's website: :)
How is High Vitamin Butter Oil different from ghee and other butter oils?
They are not the same.
Ghee is pasteurized butter that is re-heated.. some companies will try to market a ghee product and call it butter oil in an attempt to confuse a buyer. They are one and the same.
High Vitamin Butter Oil, as Dr. Price made it and Green Pastures makes today, is extracted from the liquid without heat and never heated. The centrifuge does not generate heat, plus the cows eat a specific type of pasture under certain conditions.
This non-heated butter oil produced is separated into two parts. Only a small % of the oil is used to make the High Vitamin Butter Oil. The product is not heated, controlled grazing, and concentrated. Some suggest that a vortex energy is introduced during the centrifuge process but i am not well versed in this science to describe it other than this brief introduction.
When I am taking cod liver oil I drink it with milk. It tastes like - guess what - milk! :) Simply pour milk and then cod liver oil on top. You will have an orange pool on top which will look intimidating but won't taste bad. If you pour the oil first and then milk, the oil will "touch" the sides of the glass (the glass won't be orange or anything...but the "water doesn't stick" effect will be more obvious than after milk). I haven't had hv butter oil yet (only the Royal blend) so I can't give any consumption tips for that. :(
I hope that helps with your kids and gagging. :)
