How does Ayurvedic apple cider vinegar differ from regular apple cider vinegar?

It is raw, unfiltered and unpasteurized, which means that it contains the “mother”– a cloudy sediment composed of beneficial bacteria, yeast, and enzymes. and all the beneficial nutrients intact. Regular ACV may be filtered, pasteurized, and may not contain the mother.

Benefits of Ayurvedic Apple Cider Vinegar:

  1. Digestive Health

  3. Weight Management:

    Apple cider vinegar might have a modest impact on weight loss by making you feel fuller and reducing your appetite. So you’re less likely to overeat or snack between meals.

    Apple cider vinegar might have some benefits for your heart health. It could help lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels, which are markers for heart disease.

    Using apple cider vinegar in your skincare routine can do wonders for your skin. It can help balance the pH level, reduce acne, and make scars appear less noticeable. It’s also a natural way to add shine to your hair and remove buildup. It is generally not recommended to apply undiluted apple cider vinegar (ACV) directly to your face. ACV is acidic and can be quite strong, which means it might cause irritation, redness, or even burns if applied directly to the skin. Same goes for the hair as well.

Parameters to know the authentic Apple Cider Vinegar:

1.Naturally fermented: 

Natural fermentation in ACV involves crushing and pressing fresh apples to extract the juice. Beneficial bacteria and yeast present on the apple skins and in the environment ferment the sugars in the juice, first into alcohol and then into acetic acid. The fermentation process takes several weeks to months, allowing flavors to develop. Unpasteurized and unfiltered ACV with the “mother” – a cloudy sediment composed of beneficial bacteria, yeast, and enzymes that contains beneficial components from the apples and is preferred for its potential health benefits.

This means that the vinegar has undergone minimal processing and has not undergone heating or pasteurization. In the context of ACV, “raw” indicates that the vinegar retains its natural enzymes, beneficial bacteria, and other nutrients that may be present in the original apple cider.

Raw ACV is often unfiltered as well, meaning it contains the “mother” – a cloudy sediment composed of beneficial bacteria, yeast, and enzymes. People believe that the “mother” contributes to the potential health benefits of ACV. They are gut friendly bacteria that help to keep the digestive and immune system healthy.

3. Optimal pH

The ideal pH of natural ACV typically ranges between 2.8 and 3.5. This acidic pH level is primarily due to the presence of acetic acid, which is the main component of vinegar. Its acidity is a result of the fermentation process that converts the alcohol in apple cider into acetic acid.

4. Flavour

Naturally fermented ACV, with its longer fermentation period, tends to exhibit more complex flavors and aromas. It may have subtle fruity notes from the apples and additional layers of flavour derived from the microbial activity during fermentation. In contrast, artificially fermented vinegar may have a more straightforward and less complex flavour profile.

5. Variety of apple:
