"It’s the little things that make winning sink in"
Ghee can be used as a substitute for butter, and while butter is not necessarily bad for health, many people think that ghee might be a more healthful alternative for using in cooking. In this article, we look at the differences between ghee and butter in terms of production, nutrition , and healthfulness, as well as the risks associated with these products.
Ghee is a form of highly-clarified butter that is traditionally used in Asian cooking. Like butter, ghee is typically made from cow's milk. Ghee is made by melting regular butter. The butter separates into liquid fats and milk solids. Once separated, the milk solids are removed, which means that ghee has less lactose than butter. Traditionally, ghee has been used as cooking oil, an ingredient in dishes, and in Ayurveda therapies.
Ghee is still used in Ayurvedic massage and as a base for herbal ointments to treat burns and rashes. Ghee is heated for longer than other types of clarified butter, which contributes to a stronger and nuttier flavor, as well as a darker hue. A person can make ghee at home using regular unsalted butter.
Melt the butter slowly and skim off the solids that gather on the surface. Continue to cook the butter until all the milk solids have sunk to the bottom and the liquid is clear — this is clarified butter. Continue to cook for a few more minutes until the milk solids at the bottom of the pan turn brown.
The cooked milk solids give the ghee its flavor and color. Sieve the liquid into a jar or bottle and let it cool and solidify. Because ghee and butter both derive from cow's milk, their nutritional profiles and fat content are very similar. However, because ghee does not contain the same levels of dairy proteins as butter, it may be better for people who do not tolerate dairy products well. Various research studies have looked at the possible benefits and risks of including ghee in a person's diet.
According to research from , ghee contains almost 50 percent saturated fat, which has led to concerns that ghee might increase the risk of coronary artery disease CAD in India. However, a study looking at people in north India suggests that the fat and cholesterol in the blood was healthier in the people who ate more ghee and less mustard oil as sources of fat in their diets.
Although this study only compared results between ghee and mustard oil and not butter, it did show promising results for ghee.
Some forms of mustard oil are banned for consumption in the United States, Canada, and Europe because they contain erucic acid.
Because ghee has had many of its dairy proteins removed, it contains much lower levels of dairy proteins, such as casein, and lactose than regular butter.
A person who is sensitive or intolerant to lactose and casein may find that it is beneficial to use ghee as a substitute for butter. Ghee is rich in a fatty acid called conjugated linoleic acid CLA , which is known to have a range of health benefits.
For instance, a article suggests that dietary CLA is associated with 15 percent lower risk of coronary heart disease. Ghee contains a fatty acid called butyrate acid. According to one study , butyrate acid plays an essential role in digestive health. It may also have anti-inflammatory effects. When consumed in moderation, butter is not bad for you. However, it does contain high levels of saturated fat, which can contribute to high blood cholesterol levels and heart disease if not eaten in moderation.
The American Heart Association recommend that a person should get 5 to 6 percent of their total daily calories from saturated fat, which is about 13 grams per day. However, different types of fat, including saturated fats, are essential for a healthful diet. A person should limit their intake of saturated fats and increase their intake of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which are healthful fats. Ghee is another form of butter, and the nutritional profile and fat content of the two are similar.
However, ghee may be better for people who are sensitive to lactose and casein because it contains less of both. Neither ghee nor butter is unhealthful when eaten in moderation, and a person can include both foods in a varied and balanced diet.

The British Foreign Office and MPs had repeatedly warned English football fans and "people of Asian or Afro-Caribbean descent" travelling to Russia of "racist or homophobic intimidation, hooligan violence and anti-British hostility". At the close of the World Cup Russia was widely praised for its success in hosting the tournament, with Steve Rosenberg of the BBC deeming it "a resounding public relations success" for Putin, adding, "The stunning new stadiums, free train travel to venues and the absence of crowd violence has impressed visiting supporters.
Russia has come across as friendly and hospitable: All the foreign fans I have spoken to are pleasantly surprised. FIFA President Gianni Infantino stated, "Everyone discovered a beautiful country, a welcoming country, that is keen to show the world that everything that has been said before might not be true.
A lot of preconceived ideas have been changed because people have seen the true nature of Russia. The elimination of the US national team in qualifying led to concerns that US interest and viewership of this World Cup would be reduced especially among "casual" viewers interested in the US team , especially noting how much Fox paid for the rights, and that US games at the World Cup peaked at During a launch event prior to the elimination, Fox stated that it had planned to place a secondary focus on the Mexican team in its coverage to take advantage of their popularity among US viewers factoring Hispanic and Latino Americans.
Fox stated that it was still committed to broadcasting a significant amount of coverage for the tournament. In February , Ukrainian rightsholder UA: PBC stated that it would not broadcast the World Cup. This came in the wake of growing boycotts of the tournament among the Football Federation of Ukraine and sports minister Ihor Zhdanov.
Broadcast rights to the tournament in the Middle East were hampered by an ongoing diplomatic crisis in Qatar over alleged support of extremist groups.
Qatar is the home country of the region's rightsholder, beIN Sports. On 2 June , beIN pulled its channels from Du and Etisalat , but with service to the latter restored later that day.
Etisalat subsequently announced that it would air the World Cup in the UAE, and continue to offer beIN normally and without interruptions. On 12 July , FIFA stated that it "has engaged counsel to take legal action in Saudi Arabia and is working alongside other sports rights owners that have also been affected to protect its interests.
