Raw apple cider vinegar vs White Vinegar?

Commented on June 10, 2014
Created June 09, 2014 at 11:30 PM

Is good quality Raw Apple Cider Vinegar much better than other vinegars (white, rice, pasteurized)?

My choice is 32 oz raw ACV for about 5$ or a gallon of white vinegar for about 3$. It's been a while but I remember the ACV having a positive effect on digestion.

On a student's budget and would like to budget for more grassfed meats, etc.

Ditto, only I bought the big jug via amazon. I just refilled the smaller bottle today by coincidence.

I use it in bone broth -- but for flavor

the probiotics are fairly limited in species though. It is virtually all acetobacter family.

white vinegar is distilled. ACV has probiotics, and modest amounts of nutrients.

Any idea on the amount (1 billion? 20 billion? etc) and diversity of probiotic bacteria? Would 1-4 tablespoons a day be as useful as purchasing a daily probiotic?

Obviously? I'm not sure ACV is so magical that it merits an 'obviously.'

Obviously ACV is better. If I were you I would buy one bottle, then keep producing vinegar by using the little mother at the bottom (even with no mother it will ferment). You can do one gallon at a time. It costs $5.50 here to buy a gallon of cider at the farmer market. It has to be preservative free, or it won't ferment. You can not buy it at the store. If you were in the area I would give you a little piece of mother to get started.

ACV is a fermented food and contains probiotics. Distilled White Vinegar is just the pure acid. You wouldn't use ACV to clean your house, or your windows, nor in bone broth where the heat would kill the probiotics, you'd use it in salads where the probiotics would be useful.

You need to make sure you get organic, raw, unfiltered ACV WITH the mother to get the health benefits...without that, I'm pretty sure there isn't a huge difference between ACV and regular vinegar.

I found a vendor at my local farmer's market who sells huge jugs for a good price (and is WAY darker than anything I've bought at stores)...I have a funnel and use it to fill smaller bottles for regular use.
