We know that vinegar is a condiment, obtained after fermentation. We are familiar with wine vinegar and in recent years the interest in apple cider vinegar has been so great, that its use has surpassed that of the traditional condiment derived from grapes.

Another type of this product has recently entered the market and this is walnut vinegar. The offer of the manufacturers is a completely natural vinegar obtained during fermentation, without the participation of added preservatives, acids, dyes and others.

In appearance walnut vinegar is a yellow cloudy liquid, because the sediment in it is not filtered to preserve its naturalness when filling in the bottle.

Before that, it was fermented for at least 1 year. It is not pasteurized, so that it doesn't lose its beneficial properties.

It can also be consumed directly, most often as a prophylactic or curative agent. The quantities in this role are 1-2 teaspoons dissolved in a glass of water, which are drunk 2 times a day.
