What’s the go with sugar in Applelachia drinks?

A number one rule at the Applelachia headquarters is using absolutely NO SUGAR in all our recipes.

There is a tiny trace of naturally occurring sugar which comes from natural ingredients like our 100% organic Persian lime juice.

Our apple cider vinegar (which actually helps balance blood sugar) is made from organic apples grown in the Dolomites, it is then fermented for 36 months where all the sugars are converted to gut loving organic acids and prebiotics.

Absolutely. Women have been drinking ACV and fermented foods safely for centuries.

Those floaty bits are live cultures from the Mother in our ACV. We ensure we keep all the goodness in by keeping Applelachia raw and unspastuerised. Treat the floaty bits as our friends!

Organic Xylitol, also a prebiotic. Xylitol is a natural clean tasting sweetener derived from plants. Studies have shown xylitol helps prevent tooth decay, does not spike blood sugar and also helps feed the gut microbiota.
