Coconut Vinegar is a nutritious enzyme-rich addition to raw salad dressings and sauces and can be taken as a supplement. It can be used as a substitute for apple cider vinegar and has many of the same health benefits. Coconut Vinegar vs. Apple Cider Vinegar: Coconut trees are grown in rich volcanic soil, contributing to the sap's high mineral content (especially abundant in Potassium - 192 mg per tablespoon of fresh sap). Our vinegar contains 17 health-promoting amino acids, broad-spectrum B vitamins, vitamin C, and naturally occurring FOS (a probiotic that promotes digestive health). Most apple cider vinegar has no measurable vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, or Vitamin E, fiber (pectin) or amino acid content. Coconut Vinegar has an alkalizing effect in the body, much the same as apple cider vinegar. The naturally occurring organic acids found in coconut sap vinegar, provide the body with important minerals such as potassium, calcium, sodium, and magnesium. These and other minerals form compounds in the body that convert acid body fluids into alkaline. These are known as alkalizing minerals.
