Apple Cider Vinegar and the Mother of Vinegar

This cloudy vinegar has been produced from locally-grown apples and is preservative free. Because it is unfiltered, fermentation continues after bottling which could affect the colour of the vinegar. The ‘mother’ of vinegar will be seen forming over time. The ‘mother’ is made up of cellulose (type of fibre) and acetic acid bacteria and is believed to help with digestion and immune function. 

Apple cider vinegar adds a delicious fruity flavour to salad dressings, sauces and marinades. This vinegar is being added to our range of vinegars, which also include Organic Apple Cider Vinegar and clear Apple Cider Vinegar.
