Episode 34: Ghee Something Say Something See Something Say Something

    • Society & Culture

Ghee is having a moment right now. People call it a magic food that will melt your fat away. Kourtney Kardashian swears by it. Whole Foods is selling it. And the marketing language always comes back to how “ancient,” “pure” and “authentic” it is. And Ahmed can’t stop thinking about it. So this week, we’re spending the whole episode tackling one question: Why is this happening to ghee? We do a taste test with the brain trust, chat with BuzzFeed Health editor Sally Tamarkin, NYU Food Studies Department chair Krishnendu Ray, and Ahmed’s aunt Naheed Usmani to chew on it.
