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.
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 benefit from the extra help Apple Cider Vinegar gives in digesting food. Whether this is because of the extra acidity or help from enzymes is uncertain.
