Apple Cider Vinegar
- Chantal Organics Raw Apple Cider Vinegar is crafted using organic New Zealand apples. It is unfiltered, unpasteurised and naturally fermented. Chantal preserve the 'mother' in each bottle - a natural sediment produced during the fermentation process. This 'mother; is an assortment of living enzymes and good bacteria, which promote a healthy gut and support the digestive tract. Not to mention, it is incredibly versatile and delicious.
Apple Cider Vinegar is rich in enzymes and potassium, and supports a healthy immune system. It can also help to control weight, promote digestion, soothe dry throats, improve pH balance, help maintain healthy skin, and even relieve muscle pain from exercise. Apple Cider Vinegar has been highly regarded throughout history, with even the great Hippocrates, Father of Medicine, using it for its amazing health qualities back in 400BC.
- Apple Cider Vinegar is very versatile, and can be used to bring out flavours in almost anything. It can be replaced in any recipe that you would use regular vinegar. Apple Cider Vinegar is our favourite vinegar to make salad dressings with - simply shake in a glass jar with 1 part vinegar to 2 parts oil (our favourites are Chia Seed Oil and Sacha Inchi Oil), some organic sea salt, pepper, a teaspoon of coconut nectar or yacon syrup, and herbs if you like.
We also like to add a tablespoon to a glass of hot water in the morning to aid in digestion. You can add some fresh grated ginger and honey to this tonic also to help soothe sore throats. It's great to wash fruit and vegetables in too, simply add a teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar to a basin full of warm water and let your vegetables soak for at least 10 minutes before scrubbing and leaving out in a colander to dry.

At the same time, they remain to be an independent, family owned company whose business is shaped by their firm commitment to organic farming and sustainable practices, as well as their dedication to maintaining the health of the environment and community they operate in.
