Why Nigella is into coconut vinegar
Of all the wonderful ingredients available in Australia, English celebrity foodie Nigella Lawson looked for coconut vinegar.
She tweeted Felicity Specter who was, at that moment, judging coconut vinegar at the UK’s Guild of Fine Food’s Great Taste Awards, the Oscars for fine food. What a coincidence, right?
Nigella should have come to the Philippines.
Coconut vinegar is apparently the latest health food discovery and is well on its way to being branded as a superfood.
Livestrong.com says coconut vinegar is similar to apple cider and balsamic vinegars because it is also fermented. The website noted that coconut vinegar is a staple in Southeast Asia, specifically the Philippines, and that it is also used in some regions of India.
Coconut vinegar, like apple cider vinegar, has a “mother”—that cloudy culture within that results from fermentation.
Coconut vinegar can be made with coconut water or from the sap of the coconut tree.
Wellandgood.com says coconut vinegar beats apple cider vinegar hands down simply because it is made from coconut. The website recommends the coconut vinegar made from the sap which means it has a lot more healthy amino acids, vitamins B and C, and probiotics to help your digestive system. The next time you reach out for coconut vinegar, just imagine who’s dying to have it. (By: Eileen A. Mencias)
