Real Cider Apples
for Real Cider Vinegar
100% Cider Apple juice and
no concentrate or dessert fruit
The SOMERSET CIDER VINEGAR COMPANY makes traditional cider vinegar (also called Apple Cider Vinegar or ACV) from 100% Somerset cider apple juice. Unlike supermarket apple cider vinegars, our vinegar is TRADITIONALY FERMENTED for THREE YEARS. Most supermarket apple cider vinegars are made industrially in a single day using discarded dessert fruit and imported concentrate. They are fermented by feeding compressed air and nutrients to acetic acid bacteria. This process does not allow for the creation of the vinegar 'mother' that is so important for health treatments.
Genuine cider apples contain greater quantities of antioxidants and tannins and have more health applications than dessert or culinary apples. IF YOUR VINEGAR DOESN'T SAY IT'S MADE FROM PURE CIDER APPLE JUICE - IT WON'T BE! Cider vinegar bought from supermarkets is produced industrially in a machine called an 'Acetator' using cider made from substandard dessert apples, lots of sugar and imported concentrates to boost the alcohol content.

Somerset Cider Vinegar is not filtered or pasteurised and contains Acetobacter Aceti (mother-of-vinegar). Acetobacters are present as wispy, gelatinous particles in the vinegar. They are tasteless and nutritious but can be removed with a tea-strainer or something similar if they grow too quickly in your vinegar.

A slightly alkaline body pH is essential for good health, yet a lot of what we eat is acetifying. Although Apple Cider Vinegar contains acetic acid, once it has been digested it turns alkaline and therefore reduces acid within the body. Normal life produces acids in our bodies and some are used as fuel but if the imbalance grows too high and our bodies become to acidic we become sick.
Apple Cider Vinegar really does have a significant impact on cholesterol levels. Last summer, Aston University in Birmingham conducted a study for the 'Trust Me I'm a Doctor' television series aired on BBC 2. The volunteers who consumed the cider vinegar averaged a 13% drop in total cholesterol, including a strikingly large reduction in triglycerides (a harmful type of fat).
