All of our natural Apple Cider Vinegars contain 'The Mother’, a living mixture of beneficial bacteria, minerals and enzymes. The Mother develops as a part of the normal natural fermentation process of the Apple Cider changing to Apple Cider Vinegar.
The Mother settles at the bottom of the bottle. The presence of The Mother is a sign that you are buying a natural, unfiltered product. With a simple shake of the bottle to disperse The Mother, your ACV is ready for consumption.
