Will Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) Break Your Fast?
In this podcast, we’re going to talk about apple cider vinegar and fasting. Apple cider vinegar does have carbohydrates. So, will apple cider vinegar break your fast?
One tablespoon of apple cider vinegar (ACV) has .01g of carbohydrates. So it’s not really going to break the fast more than a nanosecond.
Balsamic vinegar has 3g of carbs, and rice vinegar has 6g of carbs. So, comparatively, these two types of vinegar both have a lot more carbs than apple cider vinegar. But, if you’re just using a small amount as a salad dressing, I think it’s going to be just fine.
What is vinegar?
Vinegar is mainly acetic acid. Acetic acid comes from acetic acid bacteria that ferment carbs. It breaks down certain carbohydrates with enzymes and eventually turns them into vinegar. Fermentation is pretty much the breakdown of carbs, sugar, or alcohol by bacteria.
The really interesting thing about apple cider vinegar is that it has a tiny amount of carbohydrates, but it still has a lot of benefits.
A few apple cider benefits:
• It can help stabilize blood sugars
• It may lower insulin
• It can help improve insulin resistance
Anything that decreases insulin will help you lose weight. Because apple cider vinegar stabilizes your blood sugar, your hunger will go down, and your energy will go up.
You don’t have to worry about consuming apple cider vinegar while fasting. In fact, I actually encourage it. Apple cider vinegar may even help you fast for longer and have more energy.
