Apple cider vinegar is vinegar made from fermented apple juice.
It is made by first crushing apples and squeezing out the liquid. Bacteria and yeast are then added to the extracted liquid to start the alcoholic fermentation process, and the sugars are turned into alcohol. The alcohol is converted into vinegar by acetic acid-forming bacteria. Acetic acid and malic acid are what give vinegar its sour taste.
Apple cider vinegar has no nutritional value, aside from some calories, with all nutrients at negligible levels, although, it has many benefits. It is used in salad dressings, marinades, vinaigrettes and food preservatives.
