Why is the pure A2 Ghee costlier than the regular ghee

Why is the pure A2 Ghee costlier than the regular ghee

Let us understand the importance of A2 ghee before we understand why it is priced high.

Several researches have concluded the health hazards associated with HF cows A1 milk consumption because of A1 beta-casein present in the milk, the report continues to prove that A1 milk and its products lead to diseases like Type 1 diabetes, cancer etc.

On the other hand indigenous cows milk contains A2 beta-casein, which is good for health in numerous ways (no wonder why our ancestors called milk as Amruth)


Milk is milk and why is there is a difference in pricing? Don’t worry- We will de-code everything in a minute.

A2 milk comes from Indian/African indigenous cows, which gives 2 to 6 liters of milk per day based on the bread type.

Now, since indigenous cow gives less milk and considering its rich nutritive value,  one liter of milk is sold between 60-100 rupees in the Indian market. Secondly, the reason for its high pricing is also for the reason that these cows produce less milk.


Now Coming to the point, let us understand the cost to prepare one KG of pure ghee in bilona method.

Technically it takes about 22 liters of milk to prepare 1 KG of pure A2 cow ghee. So, if you see it costs a manufacturer approximately 1600 rupees to prepare one KG of ghee.

The majority of brands sell ghee at 600 rupees per  KG by labeling it pure ghee and these are the brands who spend crores of rupees on marketing it with a ‘PURE GHEE’ tag.

Anyways keeping the marketing costs aside, even if it is milked from a buffalo or a HF cow- the cost of preparing ghee comes up to 1200 rupees considering 25 liters of milk, heating cost, rent, labor, transportation and miscellaneous expenses.

Now, if you are still wondering how?  the answer is – It is just not ghee. Instead, it is Vanaspati or dalada ghee made from vegetable oil which contains very low nutrients and obviously comes with tons of unhealthy ingredients that are used to make it smell and taste like ghee.

These unethical practices in the market is costing people’s health with an increased rate of heart attacks and obesity.

By the way, mysteriously the pure A2 ghee melts inside the human body at 37 degrees celsius against normal body temperature of 37.2 degrees. It is interesting to see how nature has fine-tuned ghee for human consumption with no chance of cholesterol build-up when compared to the adulterated ghee does not melt easily and continues to store up in your body as bad fat.

Research claims that A2 ghee  benefits are immense:

  • In maintaining Mental & Physical Health
  • Healthy Hair and Skin
  • Healthy Vision
  • Anti-aging properties
  • Maintaining Bone Health
  • Overcome Weakness & Fatigue
  • Strengthening Immunity

Some of you who are lucky enough must have come across your mother or grandmother preparing ghee by storing butter on a daily basis.. Double lucky you are if you still have access to indigenous cow milk to enjoy the delicious ghee and its granules.

Think again before purchasing ghee next time because we are what we eat.

    This post is flawed in every way from fantastical health claims to magical temperature but I will point the math error here the author assume that ghee should cost 1200 per kg because it uses 25 liters of milk and anything cheaper is fake as if the skimmed milk after removing fat/ghee is not sold but thrown away this shows bogus claim on focus on painting other manufacturers bad to justify high price

      We appreciate your comment Gaurav. The cost of a A2 ghee is not less than 75 rs/ liter. Secondly it is highly priced because of shortage and the limited quantity of milk indigenous cow provides per day.
      So, even after using the butter milk and all possible bi products. It would not be possible to produce A2 cow ghee anything less than 1200 rupees..

      Some of the claims of A2 milk benefits are cogitated from the book Devil in the Milk
