Apple cider vinegar is a type of vinegar made from apples – it has multiple uses, one of which is to be converted into a supplement. As a matter of fact, many people prefer taking apple cider vinegar gummies because they are convenient.
Apple cider vinegar has been used at home for traditional benefits.* It’s also popular in kitchen use, as a delicious vinaigrette for salads or for preserving foods.
Just like other kinds of vinegar, apple cider vinegar contains acetic acid, which is what gives the vinegar its acidic taste. Said to be a component of vinegar, acetic acid promotes some of the vinegar’s unique properties.
As a supplement, apple cider vinegar is gaining popularity – especially apple cider vinegar gummies that provide a delicious way to consume the typically strong, bitter vinegar.
But let’s start at the beginning.
How is Apple Cider Vinegar Made?
Apple cider vinegar is made in a multiple-step process. If you’ve been wondering about what kind of work goes into making apple cider vinegar, here’s a run-down of the whole process:
1) Harvesting the Apples
Imagine standing in the middle of an apple farm during harvest in early fall. The sun is shining on your face and a mild breeze is playing with your hair. The green and red apples are dancing on the branches under the rustling leaves.
Now you tell us if this isn’t a beautiful image of the apple’s early journey to apple cider vinegar?
Allowing the apples to ripen all the way gives them their gentle sweetness. They’re crunchy, crisp, juicy, and ready to be picked.
2) Preparing the Apples
Next up, the apples are prepared – they’re washed, peeled, and chopped, so they can be ground and pressed. While this part of the process is rather tedious, it’s an important step. Once the apples are peeled and cut into smaller pieces, they’re ready to be turned into juice.
This step is usually performed in larger facilities as it requires different types of machinery. Not to forget that this machinery has to be able to process large quantities of apples at the same time.
3) Making Apple Juice
After the apples have been prepared, apple juice is made by mechanically squeezing the apples. The apples are turned into a mash, out of which apple juice is then extracted. During extraction, any of the remaining apples are filtered out carefully to yield a clear liquid.
Now, the next steps are essential for converting regular apple juice into apple cider vinegar. By adding yeast, the sugar in the apple juice is turned into alcohol. Initially, the juice turns into hard cider but with continued fermentation, turns into alcohol.
Fermentation is a central step in turning apple juice into vinegar – in fact, multiple fermentation processes are required to yield apple cider vinegar.
5) Adding Bacteria
Bacteria convert the alcohol into acetic acid in the last step of the process. Acetic acid is what gives the vinegar its bitter and distinct taste – that little kick that makes out any vinegar.
Sometimes this step is also referred to as “acetic fermentation,” which is different from the initial alcoholic fermentation that’s achieved by using yeast.
What Happens Next?
The apple cider vinegar can be used further and is turned into different products, out of which some of the most popular ones are listed below:
- Bottled apple cider vinegar for kitchen use
- Made into a powder for apple cider vinegar supplements
- Made into a powder to include in apple cider vinegar gummies
- ACV conditioner and hair treatment
- Skincare and peels with apple cider vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar – the “Mother”
Have you ever heard of the “mother” in apple cider vinegar?
While the term might be a tad confusing, the mother in apple cider vinegar is the basis of converting cider into vinegar. This means that strands of the mother can be used in producing more vinegar.¹ Think of it as the foundation or cornerstone in the ACV process.
The mother in apple cider vinegar is filtered out at times but can be left unfiltered as well.¹ The mother is traditionally used to support healthy digestion.* In fact, this is what makes the mother in apple cider vinegar so interesting.
Sometimes you can see the mother in liquid apple cider vinegar when you look at a bottle, for instance. It’s the murky cloud that tends to settle at the bottom similar to seeing the scoby in a bottle of kombucha.
Due to its uninviting appearance, many manufacturers remove the mother from the apple cider vinegar. Nevertheless, when you shop for apple cider vinegar, make sure you look for ones that are made with the mother.
