Apple cider vinegar is made by fermenting sugars from apples. It contains something known as “mother”, that connotes proteins, enzymes, and friendly bacteria that gives it a frothy cloudy texture. It has an exotic flavour and for that reason, it is usually used in exotic salads and appetizers. Irrespective of its usage in recipes, it is also consumed for some medicinal purpose, but the very exfoliating fact regarding the apple cider vinegar is that it doesn't really contain any minerals and vitamins, rather than a very small quantity of calcium, magnesium, and potassium. In lieu of all aforementioned facts, it does contain some amino acid and antioxidant.
It should look a little cloudy, as it signifies the presence of the “mother” component in it. Look for where it is made, and if it happens to be where the apples are traditionally grown, then it is advisable to go for the same. Always look for the expiration date.
Although apple cider vinegar is regarded to be helpful in certain aspects, but it carries some side effects as well, but that generally happens if consumed in an uncalculated manner. For example, if one consumes it in large quantities and that too in an undiluted form may cause digestive issues and tooth decay. Likewise, it should not be applied on the face in undiluted form, as it might burn the skin.(2)
