It is made by crushing apples and squeezing out the liquid. Bacteria and yeast are added to the liquid to start the alcoholic fermentation process, and the sugars are turned into alcohol. In a second fermentation process, the alcohol is converted into vinegar by acetic acid-forming bacteria (acetobacter). Acetic acid and malic acid give vinegar its sour taste.

Health Benefits Of Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar, diluted in water is said to be a very healthful ingredient. Many dieters swear by taking a 1-2 tablespoons of the vinegar with water, every morning. While there are many claims of health benefits there may or may not be scientific evidence that any of the health benefits are really a benefit.

No claims of benefit are supported by good evidence, and medicinal consumption of apple cider vinegar may be hazardous, particularly if taken during pregnancy or consumed chronically.
