What makes HANAH Vechur Ghee so special?
The rare Vechur cow breed is native to Kerala, India, and has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years as a powerful source of healing. They are the smallest cattle breed in the world and only about 300 of them remain. Our cows are completely free to graze the mineral-rich lands around them and are able to synthesize the local grasses and herbs, producing a ghee that is considered highly medicinal. Mothers are never separated from their calves, which are free to nurse at any time.
Ghee made from Vechur milk in the Ayurvedic tradition is a sacred, cleansing and nourishing food with multiple health benefits—it’s highly nutritious, and is said to help improve digestion, strengthen the immune system, balance hormones, lower bad cholesterol (LDL) and raise good (HDL), and lubricate the intestinal tract and all tissues inside the body. In addition, Vechur milk has a beta casein A2 profile, meaning the fat molecules are much smaller than the standard beta casein A1, making it more easily assimilated.
HANAH is committed to assisting the Kerala University Veterinary Department and the entire Vechur breed to ensure that these magical cows remain with us. By supporting the Vechur movement, we are attempting to ensure that there is a market for this special ghee, which may help local families and communities see the value in keeping the breed alive and thriving.
