interesting thought butter more healthier than veg product. will check labels. the veg ghee says no cholesterol but i too am always on the look out to avoid hydrogenated veg oil.

no rice bran oil in asda so will move onto sainsburys

butter ghee is actually healthier than vegetable ghee as far as I am aware.

Are any oils actually "healthy" (ie good) for you?  I think not?  Its probably less misleading to say one oil is less UNhealthy than another?

Butter ghee will be full of cholestrol.

Vegetable ghee wont have any cholestrol because its not an animal product.
Those that welcome criticism learn to do better

Tamala,

would appreciate your thoughts on whether vegetable ghee is effectively hydrogenated oil and therefore has a much higher saturated fat level than veg oil.

ps have adopted your suggestions on naan bread - many thanks

Yes Oils can be healthy as well.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rice_bran_oil

Rice bran oil is rich in vitamin E, γ-oryzanol (an antioxidant that may help prevent heart attacks[4]), and phytosterols (compounds believed to help lower cholesterol absorption[5][6]), which may provide associated health benefits.

So some oils including olive oil as well actually reduce cholesterol.

A little on Ghee as well.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghee

Butter Ghee is saturated fats, BUT it has been shown to reduce cholesterol in rat studies as well, where as vegetable ghee is just hydrogenated vegetable oil which has been shown to be very unhealthy. Vegetable Ghee has been shown to cause a rise in LDL cholesterols.

So although wikipedia is not strictly the most accurate source of information sometimes, but the information within there is backed up by reference sources.

So give me Butter Ghee over vegetable ghee, but used in small quantities along with healthy oils.
