What is Apple Cider Vinegar?
Apple cider vinegar (ACV or cider vinegar) is a vinegar made from fermented apple juice that can be used in various ways and provides multiple health benefits. Willy’s organic apple cider vinegar is a minor miracle from mother nature, being raw, unpasteurised, and unfiltered ACV, leaving the mother culture beautifully alive and present in each bottle.
How do you use ACV?
Willy's ACV includes the mother, and with all their vinegars, apart from their dosing bottles, they recommend shaking the bottle to activate the mother. You can dilute the ACV with warm water, mix it in other drinks such as smoothies, use it as a dressing for food, or use it as an ingredient in a meal. You may want to use ACV for steam facials, as a hair treatment, or even add a spoonful to your bath.
When is the best time to use ACV?
We recommend consuming our ACV before food, first thing in the morning, if you’re wanting to reduce your appetite. If drinking on an empty stomach, please dilute with plenty of warm or cold water. If you choose to consume ACV with your meals, this can help delay digestion and, often, the feeling of being full.
What is the "mother," and why is Willy's different?
"Mother" refers to the combination of yeast and bacteria formed during fermentation. At the bottom of a bottle of apple cider vinegar, you’ll see her floating around; a cloudy, strand-like form. The "mother" is only found in raw and unpasteurised vinegars, like Willy’s ACV. Don’t be afraid of her, she is full of gut-friendly probiotics such as acetic acid bacteria. Many ACV brands have a dead mother, which you’ll notice from the dusty sediment in the bottom of the bottle.
What are the healthy, good, gut-friendly bacteria?
Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts, that are good for you, particularly your digestive system.
Where should you store your Willy's ACV?
All Willy's vinegar is to be stored in a cool, dark place, such as your pantry or on your kitchen counter, so everyone can see it.
What to do if there's not enough mother?
Pop your bottle somewhere warmer, such as your airing cupboard. This will speed up the development of the mother culture.
Is Apple Cider Vinegar a probiotic?
Yes, apple cider vinegar is a probiotic. Willy’s organic apple cider vinegar is a live probiotic food that provides health benefits when consumed regularly. Due to the fermentation process, Willy’s ACV helps maintain a healthy immune system, aids weight loss, improves gut health, etc. Willi's is proud to make organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar with live Mother grown without artificial pesticides and fertilisers, letting natural practises help nature keep its own balance.
How is apple cider vinegar linked to the keto diet?
Apple cider vinegar is keto-friendly and can be added to water to add some flavour. Willy’s organic apple cider vinegar can also be used as a salad dressing because it has a low carbohydrate composition, making it great for those on a keto diet.
Is Willy's Apple Cider Vinegar suitable for vegans?
Yes! It is also gluten-free and free of GMO ingredients.
Is Apple Cider Vinegar very acidic?
While Willy’s apple cider vinegar is mildly acidic with an acidity level of 5, alkaline nutrients such as potassium, calcium, and magnesium from the apples make it less acidic than other vinegars like white wine vinegar.
What is the shelf life of Willy's ACV?
Willy’s organic apple cider vinegar, 1000 ml and 50 ml, lasts up to 3 years. Please check the use-by date on the packaging.
Can I recycle Willy's packaging?
