Fontana FORMIELLO organic wine and apple cider vinegars are made through the fermentation and the aging of selected organic Italian grapes or organic pressed apple juice, in Naples in the south of Italy.
Unlike a lot of other vinegars, ours are made without the addition of sulphites. Sulphites are added to stop the fermentation process, and they cause the important enzymes to be filtered out, so that a clear liquid with a high acidity is left.
As our vinegars are unfiltered and unpasteurized, we end up with a product that is rich with enzymes as well as the nutritious “mother”. These live enzymes are good for the digestive health as they are probiotics. In fact, since Roman times, vinegar has been renowned for its therapeutic properties in addition to its culinary purposes.
The healthy properties of vinegar make it an ideal ingredient for dressings, or to be enjoyed in herbal teas or diluted in water.
