Eden selected organic apples are slowly pressed and lightly filtered, using no 'press aids' or enzymes, then slowly transformed into the finest Apple Cider Vinegar.
Eden Organic Apple Cider Vinegar is naturally fermented with 'mother' of vinegar, a friendly natural bacteria culture similar to 'starter' used to make country bread. Appearing as cloudiness in the final product, the presence of mother indicates the best quality raw vinegar. The apple juice goes through a primary fermentation to reach the desired alcohol content, and a secondary fermentation to change the alcohol into acetic acid. Then it is patiently aged in cedar wood casks. Eden Vinegar is bottled in amber glass to protect its flavor, bouquet and nutritional integrity.
Apple Cider Vinegar is traditionally the most widely relied upon vinegar in North America. Its soothing, healthy, and rejuvenating effects are very well documented from diaries of the early pioneers to the Internet. Applied externally cider vinegar was used to soothe sunburns, bee stings, insect bites, athlete's foot, dandruff and acne; to soften dry skin, strengthen nails and restore luster and shine to dull hair. It is also used liberally to massage sore muscles. Vinegar has provided good health and zest to people for over 7,000 years.
Most commercial vinegars are highly denatured through the use of extreme heat and chemical solvents. They are formulated rather than fermented. Please avoid any vinegar labeled 'distilled', as it is the most highly refined and least healthful. For the flavor and benefit of true raw vinegar choose Eden.
