WHAT IS APPLE CIDER VINEGAR POWDER?
Apple Cider Vinegar Powder is a fine, creamish white, free-flowing powder. Apple Cider Vinegar Powder carried by New Directions Aromatics is obtained from India and is derived from the Apples of the Malus domestica tree. Apple Cider Vinegar Powder is known for being a cleansing ingredient with a soothing touch that can help balance the skin's pH levels.
Apples play a crucial role in producing Apple Cider Vinegar Powder. Growing good quality apples require cross-pollination. Mis-shaped fruit and lower production can be a result of poor pollination. An average apple can range anywhere from 5 - 10 cm (2 - 4 inches) in diameter. Like many other fruits, Apples require full sunlight, and Apple trees need to be planted in well-drained soil that retains moisture.
The journey from Apples to Apple Cider Vinegar Powder began somewhere on the silk road. The silk road was a popular trade route that contributed to the spread and discovery of Apple Cider Vinegar. In 55BC historical records claim that when Julius Caesar reached Southeast England, he found the English drinking Cider made from Apples. Historians believe the Apple Cider that Julius Caesar saw was made from Crabapples which were not eaten because of their bitter taste but were a great ingredient for alcoholic beverages.
By the 17th century, Apple Cider had become popular amongst the upper class and it often replaced the wine. By the 18th century, Apple Cider was manufactured economically, thus being widely available to everyone. As settlers began to migrate to the United States and Canada, nearly every farm grew Apples. Cider was made from the harvested Apples, while the livestock was fed grounded-up Apples.
In the ancient world, the Greeks used Apple Cider Vinegar to treat wounds. The Apple Cider Vinegar was mixed with honey to treat colds and coughs. Even in parts of Africa and China, Apple Cider Vinegar was used as alternative medicine. Eventually, Apple Cider Vinegar became a valuable part of the beauty and cosmetic industry.
