What Is Apple Cider Vinegar?
Created through a two-step process in a similar way to the production of alcohol, the end result is a fruity and healthy vinegar.
As Healthline explains, “The first step exposes crushed apples...to yeast, which ferment the sugars and turn them into alcohol...In the second step, bacteria are added to the alcohol solution, which further ferments the alcohol and turns it into acetic acid...” (2018).
Acetic acid refers to the main active compound found in apple cider vinegar which is responsible for many of the health benefits associated with the vinegar.
It’s important to choose organic apple cider vinegar, as it is the purest and most beneficial option out there.
Why The Mother In Organic Apple Cider Vinegar Matters And Why Everyone Should Take It.
You may have heard about the 'Mother’ when referring to organic apple cider vinegar. You also may have wondered what exactly the term means. The mother refers to Mycoderma aceti. Made up of acetic acid bacteria which develops in fermenting alcoholic liquids, this converts the alcohol into acetic acid. The acetic acid is what is responsible for making Apple Cider Vinegar a Superfood!
It’s important to remember that there’s a significant difference between high quality apple cider vinegar and the cheaper alternatives which may not include acetic acid and may also include additives and preservatives.
