Our A2 Ghee is made from the milk of Gir cow using traditional Bilona method

What is Bilona method? 

The Bilona method is a traditional method of making ghee . It involves churning curd or yogurt made from cow's milk, instead of cream, to obtain butter, which is then heated to obtain ghee. The method is named after the Bilona, a wooden churn used for the purpose.

The Bilona method is considered superior to other methods of making ghee as it retains the natural aroma, taste, and nutrients of the milk. The churning process breaks down the fat molecules into smaller particles, which are easier to digest and assimilate by the body. The curd used in the Bilona method is typically made from milk obtained from indigenous cows, which are believed to produce more nutritious milk than crossbred cows.

The Bilona method is also considered to be more environmentally friendly, as it uses simple and natural techniques and avoids the use of machines and chemicals. It is becoming increasingly popular among consumers who are interested in traditional and organic methods of food production.

What are GIR breed cows?

The Gir cow, also known as the Gir breed, is a breed of cattle native to India. It is one of the principal Zebu breeds in the country and is well-known for its high milk production and docile temperament.

Gir cows are typically medium to large in size, with a distinctive hump on their shoulders and a drooping dewlap. They are usually reddish-brown or fawn in color, with white markings on their face and legs. The breed is known for its hardiness and adaptability to hot and humid climates, making it well-suited to the tropical conditions of India.

Gir cows are popular for their high milk yield, which can range from 1500 to 3000 liters per lactation. The milk is rich in fat and protein and is used for making various dairy products such as ghee, cheese, and yogurt. In addition to its milk production, the Gir cow is also used for draught purposes in some parts of India.

Gir cows are considered sacred by many Hindus and are worshipped as the mother goddess Kamdhenu. They are also an important cultural symbol in India and have been featured in many works of art and literature.
