Question: What is the mother of Apple Cider Vinegar?
Answer: Natural unpasteurized acv should be a rich brownish or amber color-and when you hold the acv to light you should see a formation of cob-web like substance floating in it, this substances is called the “mother”.
When you first see this floating substance it can look very unappetizing when comparing it to the supermarkets distilled acv, which is a bright color and free from the cob- web floating substances. Distilled acv destroys the “mother” substance-that contains nutritional health values.
Question: Can I make vinegar from the cobweb stuff in the vinegar? Is this the Mother of vinegar? I read somewhere you could but I don't know how. And I can't find where I read it from.
Answer: Yes, you can save some of the “mother” (cob-web substances) and transfer it to work in other vinegar bottles. I found the information in Bragg book-pg 1, Apple Cider Vinegar Miracle Health System.
Question: There seems to be a debate over whether organic unpasteurized apple cider vinegar (ACV) should be consumed or the pasteurized ACV common in many grocery stores. Critics of the unpasteurized ACV claim that it many contain bacteria. Critics to pasteurized AVC claim that heating and removal of the mother destroy the health-enhancing properties of the vinegar. What type of apple cider vinegar do you recommend?
Answer: Many commercial acv have been pasteurized, filtered, refined or distilled this processing destroys the “mother” and many of the acv benefits. The best type of apple cider vinegar to use is organic unpasteurized, in which no chemicals or preservatives have been added, it will have the "mother" visible, and is not pasteurized. The "mother " is a natural cob-web substance formed during the last fermentation step. This type of acv can be found in health food stores.

You can also buy Naturally fermented un-pasteurized raw apple cider vinegar, at a health food stores, and have the same benefits, it should be a rich amber color with the "mother" quite visible as sentiment on the bottom. Eden organic is a good brand.

Answer: You can find natural acv at your local Health Food store. There are a few you can choose from. I use Eden’s Organic. Bragg is also a popular brand of acv. When picking natural acv-it should have the “mother” visible a cob-web looking substances.
