acetic acid

Apparently it helps break down the fat in the chips according to my 'Vinegar' book... but chippies aren't chippies without vinegar!

yip next time you have chicken bones leave them in brown vinegar and watch the bone loose its hardness!

its very good for leaching calcium out of bones when making bone broth... and yes. . my chicken bones are all floppy and easy to mash with your fingers once I have made a batch of bone broth with them a splash of apple cider vinegar and 5 hours later and you've got very brittle bones in the pot. . but all the calcium in the broth!

but cider vinegar neutralises tomato acids - so wouldn't that make it alkaline? ? ?, Apr 19, 3:36am
ACV has a PH on average of 5/6

"A pH of 7. 0 is neutral. A pH below 7. 0 is acidic. A pH above 7. 0 is alkaline. "

But just because its an acid does not mean it acts that way in the body. . AVC is actually alkalizing once ingested.

You let your hubby soak his skeleton in it? theres no harm eating it as I have already pointed out its alkalizing in the body not the other way around.

In the mouth it leaches the calcium from our teeth if we use too much. No idea what roo much is.

Same as dentists saying children (and adults( should notdfrink muchs of fruit drinks. Too acid and leeches the dentine of th teeth

That deletion was an accident.

The acid in vinegar will leech the calciunm out of the teeth just as it does from the chicken bones.

Fruit drinks are acid and leach the dentie off childrens teeth really

Most fruit and veg are acidic, sugar certainly is.
