All types of vinegar are widely consumed worldwide. We are very much aware of Vinegar’s uses for improving the taste of our food and preserving our food in a natural way.

What Apple Cider Vinegar(ACV) is?
Apple Cider Vinegar is obtained from apples in two steps, the same way the alcohol is obtained. In the first step, crushed apples are added with yeast, and once it gets fermented, yeast helps to ferment the sugar to alcohol. Later bacteria are being added to this solution that further ferments the alcohol to acetic acid, which is the main compound in ACV.
ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar) is rich in acetic acid, probiotics, and enzymes. Therefore, it helps kill harmful bacteria, supports good bacteria’s growth, and makes our digestion better. Furthermore, Adding this vinegar to our food is the most natural way to preserve it.
Apple Cider Vinegar is rich in good bacteria since it acts as an excellent hut for them. It is highly recommended to use unfiltered apple cider vinegar, which contains many friendly bacteria and enzymes.
