Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
Also available without honey
Skybright’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar with Manuka Honey is made from delicious, healthy, organically grown New Zealand apples that are fermented to convert the natural sugars of the apple to alcohol. This hard cider is fermented again to change the alcohol to acetic acid. Many of the nutritional benefits of the apple are retained in this process. Our cider vinegar is natural, unfiltered and unpasteurised and contains strands of proteins, enzymes and gut-friendly bacteria. This sediment is a natural occurrence and gives the product a cloudy appearance. It is known as the ‘mother’. Many believe that the ‘mother’ provides many of the health benefits associated with this product.

Acetic acid content: High levels of acetic acid in Apple Cider Vinegar have strong biological effects. Acetic acid has been used in traditional folk medicines and remedies for more than 2000 years. Recent studies in Japan on its health benefits have shown links between the use of acetic acid and improved blood pressure and the reduced accumulation of fat. In the USA, the FDA approved the use of acetic acid as a medication for a varying range of ailments including bacterial infections, because of its anti-microbial effects.
