Is drinking cider vinegar safe?

Apple cider vinegar, which many people refer to as ACV, is an ancestral food derived from a fermentation process. In all regions of the world fermentation have been used for centuries to extend the shelf life of fresh produce (meat, fruit, vegetables, dairy products, herbs), but also to improve the nutritional or curative value of foods.

In this case, apples are exposed to yeast, which triggers the fermentation process of sugars naturally present in the fruit, resulting in the formation of beneficial probiotic bacteria. The yeast, good bacteria, proteins and enzymes produced by apple fermentation are organized to form a mother, a kind of concentrate that accelerates and promotes fermentation.

Once fermentation is well underway, cider vinegar producesacetic acid. This acidic substance is known to be beneficial to human health, particularly human microbial flora.

In this case, vinegar derives its properties from its acidity and probiotic content - a by-product of fermentation that differs from other vinegars.

Ways to use cider vinegar

In general, one to two tablespoons of raw, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar are enough to confer health benefits. This can be achieved by adding PCV to vinaigrettes, diluting cider in water or sauces, or simply drinking it by the spoonful or glassful. In fact, many enthusiasts of the benefits of this legendary fermentation take a few ounces of PCV in the morning or before meals to maximize its benefits. However, this is not the most popular taste. What's more, some users report major discomforts due to the ingestion of PCV, such as penetration into the nasal passages or breathing.

A new and exciting option has recently become available to cider vinegar consumers. These are gel capsules (or rather gummies) Goli.

This Californian company wanted to make this vinegar (made from apple cider) accessible to as many people as possible, by offering a pleasant-to-consume medium to enhance the health properties of this food.
