Compounds & Substances

Acetic acid is vinegar’s main compound which gives it its strong smell and flavour. Research suggests this might be responsible for the health benefits ACV – although it only contains 5%! 


Organic ACV contains a substance called mother. Mother consists of various proteins, enzymes, and friendly bacteria. It’s also what gives ACV it’s murky appearance. Some argue that the mother is what provides the health benefits, but there’s no research to support this.
