What is Coconut Vinegar

What is coconut vinegar?

Well, Coconut vinegar exceeds all other vinegars in amino acids, vitamins and mineral content. Don’t worry, it doesn’t taste like coconut! Here are some reasons why I love it!

1. It is also a FOS (a prebiotic that promotes digestive health).

2. The sap used to make coconut vinegar comes from coconut trees grown in volcanic soil rich with minerals. No need to worry about your potassium if you don’t eat potatoes or bananas (because they are too high in sugar/starch), coconut vinegar has 192mg per tablespoon!!! The sap also contains large amounts of phosphorus, potassium, iron, magnesium, sulfur, boron, zinc, manganese and copper.

3. Coconut sap has all 9 essential amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. It also contains 8 nonessential amino acids. Proteins are part of every living cell in your body, it forms hemoglobin, which carries oxygen and antibodies, which boosts the immune system. Amino acids also repair tissue, serve as neurotransmitters, transmits messages within the brain, and some detoxify your body and boost metabolic functions.

4. It is low on the glycemic index, coming in at only 35 on the scale.

This natural vinegar is a great replacement for your recipes that call for other vinegars (especially if you should be avoiding vinegar if you have Candida…yeast overgrowth). I use it for Kai’s bone broth, soups, dips, salad dressings, marinades…you name it. Click HERE to find.

    I recently acquired coconut vinegar and love it in vinaigrette! I like that it has prebiotic elements in it. I want to try some of the ideas listed above.

  • Kathleen says:

    I have seen this particular brand of coconut vinegar at regular grocery stores and it is approx. 4$ a bottle and up for a small bottle. Might I suggest you purchase at an asian market or international market. We have been buying ours there for over a year. The bottle is twice that size and costs less than $2. As with anything, be sure to check labels to ensure you buy the one with no sugar added.

    I have all of Maria’s cookbooks! I’ve replaced all my old, non-keto recipes with hers. She does an amazing job with her recipes. I buy her cookbooks as gifts for my family and friends! I love the Blue Cheese Salad Dressing! I put some on top of my piece of grilled chicken and fell in love. It’s my new favorite!

  • Amy says:

    So this vinegar is okay to have if I have candida? It won’t bother me? I’ve been doing lemon juice but so many things call for vinegar and sometimes lemon juice doesn’t work

  • Lee says:

    Can this be purchased in Australia ✨

  • Nicole says:

    I’m new to keto for 2 weeks now and I feel amazing. I just want to give you Maria a big shout out and say thank you for all of your hard work in educating us about our health. I know own 2 of your books but will collect all soon. They look so pretty in my kitchen. I have eliminated all my other cookbooks. Wow so many cookbooks I had its nice to just have 1 to follow. Love you so much. Oh and you have a beautiful family.

    Hi Maria, I loved your book – could not put it down! The only problem is that I am a vegan. Any ideas on a vegan/ketogenic diet plan?
