Real Cider Apples
for Real Cider Vinegar
100% Cider Apple juice and
no concentrate or dessert fruit
The SOMERSET CIDER VINEGAR COMPANY makes traditional cider vinegar (also called Apple Cider Vinegar or ACV) from 100% Somerset cider apple juice. Our vinegars are not pasteurised or micro-filtered and contain live 'mother-of-vinegar'. Somerset Cider Vinegar can be used for the treatment of arthritis and many other health purposes because our vinegar is fermented NATURALLY on the farm for at least THREE YEARS.
Genuine cider apples contain greater quantities of antioxidants and tannins and have more health applications than dessert or culinary apples. IF YOUR VINEGAR DOESN'T SAY IT'S MADE FROM PURE CIDER APPLE JUICE - IT WON'T BE! Cider vinegar bought from supermarkets is produced industrially in a machine called an 'Acetator' using cider made from substandard dessert apples, lots of sugar and imported concentrates to boost the alcohol content.

Somerset Cider Vinegar is not filtered or pasteurised and contains Acetobacter Aceti (mother-of-vinegar). Acetobacters are present as wispy, gelatinous particles in the vinegar. They are tasteless and nutritious but can be removed with a tea-strainer or something similar if they grow too quickly in your vinegar.

Apple Cider Vinegar really does have a significant impact on cholesterol levels. Last summer, Aston University in Birmingham conducted a study for the 'Trust Me I'm a Doctor' television series aired on BBC 2.
