Goulter's Organic & Conventional Cider Vinegar
Organic cider vinegar has been used for centuries as a health tonic and antiseptic.
Many people start their day with a teaspoon of cider vinegar in a glass of water and swear it's beneficial.
Goulter's organic apple cider vinegar has the 'mother of vinegar' that makes the vinegar beneficial. The 'mother' has living nutrients and you can see it settled in the bottle.
What is the "mother"?
The mother is the sludgy, cloudy looking substance which lies on the bottom of the bottle, it can over time start looking like a long string - this is the protein chain. You can often see floating bits in the bottle. Don't be alarmed as this is what you want to see because these bits are the wonderful enzymes and minerals which our bodies feed off once consumed.
The presence of the mother is the most important part of the vinegar, the mother is made up of living nutrients. It is these living nutrients which are very beneficial to our health and aids our digestive system. Sometimes you may not actually see the "mother" in the bottle however please know that each bottle has the "mother" in it. As the vinegar ages you will see the "mother" growing in the bottle.
Can I drink the "mother"?
Absolutely as the "mother" is the most nutritious part of the Apple Cider Vinegar. We suggest shaking the bottle before using to ensure you get a bit more of the "mother' each time you take it.
Pasteurized - what does this mean?
Pasteurization is the heating process which is done to try and eliminate any problem bacteria. However this process can also remove some of the nutritional value we want to retain.
Natural organic vinegar like ours is not pasteurized or filtered. Pasteurization would kill the "mother" which is why we don't pasteurize our vinegars.
Apple cider vinegar (ACV) ACV contains high levels of acetic and malic acid as well as vitamins, mineral salts and amino acids. Some of ACV’s active ingredients are soluble fibers in the form of pectin, vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, thiamin, lycopene, niacin, pantothenic acid, riboflavin and beta-carotene. It also contains other minerals like sodium, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, iron and magnesium. All of these powerful substances work together and make ACV very effective as an antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal tonic.
Vinegar improves blood sugar levels. Drinking apple cider vinegar before a high-carbohydrate meal improves insulin sensitivity—slowing the rate of blood sugar levels rising—in people who are insulin resistant (a prediabetes condition) or have type 2 diabetes. The researchers note that vinegar may possess physiological effects similar to the anti-diabetes medications acarbose and metformin.
Our organic apple cider vinegar is authentic which is why we DON'T dilute it with water.
During the fermentation process mother nature naturally places the acetic level of the organic ACV to between 5.7 and 6.2% - all depending on the seasonal growth of the apples.
The more golden in colour the vinegar is the less watered down it is.
