Why Apple Cider Vinegar?
This is a common question asked. Why do you use Apple Cider Vinegar in your bakery? It does not make any taste difference or any difference at all in the consistency of the bread for ours but only keeps it fresher a bit longer for our customers. There is a little bit of apple cider vinegar in most of our recipes. In fact almost everything we make has it in there. 😀 We purposely use only the Apple Cider Vinegar as that is what our family trusts and uses and we wouldn't use white vinegar as that is not good for you. We use the real apple cider vinegar with the mother in it too! Here's some information from the Gerson Institute...
What kind of apple cider vinegar?
Get the good stuff. By “the good stuff,” I mean raw, organic, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar...
If you’ve got a good bottle of apple cider vinegar, you should see some strand-like sediment floating at the bottom. No, your vinegar hasn’t gone bad—that gunky-looking stuff at the bottom is the most important part! It’s called “the mother,” and it contains raw enzymes and gut-friendly bacteria that promote healing. In the animated GIF below, you can see what the mother looks like floating around at the bottom of the bottle (I gave it a vigorous shake first so you can see it better).
1. Eat and/or drink it, of course!
Since apple cider vinegar is, first and foremost, a food product, I would be remiss if I didn’t first fill you in on its nutritional value and health benefits.
Apple cider vinegar lowers glucose levels, and may be helpful for diabetics. It has also been touted as a weight-loss aid, as it is said to help you feel fuller and eat less. The enzymes in apple cider vinegar also promote the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut, and can help regulate candida issues.
2. Relieve gas, bloating and heartburn
Apple cider vinegar can also be very helpful in reducing gas and bloating. Just take a tablespoon of ACV diluted in water or tea before a meal. It can also help ameliorate symptoms of heartburn. Take a dose as soon as you feel heartburn symptoms coming on.
3. Promote alkalinity
Despite its acidic taste, apple cider vinegar actually promotes alkalinity in the body. As Charlotte Gerson says, “cancer cannot live in an alkaline body,” and one of the primary ways the Gerson Therapy battles cancer and other diseases is by bringing the body into an alkaline state which makes it an inhospitable environment for cancer.
