Frequently Asked Questions on Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
- What is apple cider vinegar?
The word ‘vinegar’ comes from the French phrase, ‘vin aigre’ which means sour wine. Apple cider vinegar is the sour-tasting fermented juice of apples.

- How is apple cider vinegar made?
Apple cider vinegar is an acetic acid solution that results from the fermentation of apple juice. Apple cider vinegar is made by crushing apples and squeezing out the juice. Yeast is first added to the apple juice and made to sit for a minimum of 30 days at room temperature. During this time, yeast turns the sugar in the apple juice into alcohol. The second step of fermentation involves the conversion of alcohol into vinegar by acetic-acid-forming bacteria (acetobacter).
