2How is Apple Cider Vinegar different?
All natural apple cider vinegar is created by crushing up fresh organic apples and then maturing them inside of wooden barrels. Doing this will assist the natural fermentation process, which is different from the distilled and refined vinegars you’ll find at grocery stores. Once the vinegar has become mature, there will be a substance called mother, which is a dark, cloudy, and web-like foam which can be seen when holding the cider up towards a light source. All natural vinegars contain not just the mother but also enzymes and minerals, none of which you’ll find in supermarket vinegars due to processes like over-processing, over-heating, and poor filtration. Due to this, we suggest that you purchase only unpasteurized, unfiltered, organic natural apple cider vinegar – and try to get one with a acidity (also known as pH) level of 5 to 7.
