Melrose supplies a choice of two Apple Cider Vinegars made from whole ripened apples: their double strength Apple Cider Vinegar with 8% acetic acid and their Organic Apple Cider Vinegar with 6% acetic acid. Unlike commercial vinegars, Melrose Apple Cider Vinegars are unpasteurised and unfiltered in order to preserve nutritional value. Natural sediment is the true sign of raw, unfiltered vinegar. (The sediment can be broken up by shaking the bottle).
Melrose Apple Cider Vinegar contains pectin, trace minerals, potassium, beneficial bacteria and enzymes. Commercial apple cider vinegar is filtered and pasteurised which destroys any enzymes present. Melrose Apple Cider Vinegar is rich in enzymes and potassium. Its acidic content is the reason it acts as a germ fighter and is used in many foods as a natural preservative against spoilage. People with upset stomachs may also benefit from the extra help Apple Cider Vinegar gives in digesting food.
Why is organic important? Commercial crops and soils are sprayed with a host of chemicals to prevent insect attack on the plant or fruit. The consumer trusts that the Government analysts have made a correct assessment of the effect of any spray residues on the human body. To avoid any guesswork, organically grown fruit has a guarantee that pesticide and weedicide residues are non-existent. Certified organic apples offer exceptional quality and flavour.
