Is Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) Safe?
ACV is used in a variety of activities such as cooking, baking, salad dressing and as a preservative. As the acid content of ACV is high, it is not recommended to consume apple cider vinegar directly i.e without diluting in water, however, after adding a sufficient amount of water to ACV the acidity reduces and the vinegar is comparatively safe for consumption. Also, consuming Apple Cider Vinegar on an extremely frequent basis inflates chances of teeth erosion, acidity, stomach ache etc. Apart from ACV juice, ACV tablets are also widely available and are a better option for people with a sensitive digestive system.
