Learn how to improve your health with this trendy kitchen find.
While most of us have heard of apple cider vinegar and likely have a bottle of this health elixir in our homes, there’s another vinegar that is making a splash in the health community: coconut vinegar. Though this product is new to the U.S., it's very popular in Asia. Coconut vinegar is made from the flowers on coconut trees that produce a sap that is low glycemic and has an almost neutral pH. The sap naturally ferments as it ages for eight months to a year. Once that process is completed, it is harvested, bottled, and ready to be used. Want to learn more about coconut vinegar and find out how to try it? Chef Candice Kumai has helped us discover the top five benefits and uses.
Just like apple cider vinegar, coconut vinegar can be used in many different ways. You can try having a shot glass of it before your meals to potentially stabilize your blood sugar, using it as an all-natural hair detox, disinfect your fruit with it, make your own face cleanser, and add it to soup to give it a sweet depth of flavor.
