Bragg organic apple cider vinegar contains a cloudy substance called “the mother.” The mother is a natural product of the fermentation process. Comprised of pectin, apple residue and protein chains, the mother is the most nutritious part of unfiltered apple cider vinegar, according to the Bragg company.
Bragg organic apple cider vinegar is made from whole crushed apples. The mother forms as the vinegar matures. Unpasteurized, unfiltered vinegar that contains the mother is a rich source of minerals and nutritional enzymes. Gently shaking the bottle before using distributes the mother throughout the vinegar.
Apple cider vinegar is fermented apple juice. Apple cider vinegar contains acetic acid and vitamins B and C. Apple cider vinegar is mixed with honey or used alone to treat sore throats, leg cramps and high blood pressure. Topically, apple cider vinegar treats sunburn, acne and vaginal infections.
