This ancient, nutritious fermented food contains vitamins, mineral salts, amino acids, and other polyphenols. Fermented foods bring beneficial probiotic microbes to our diet.

Keep Your Gut Healthy

The acetic acid in organic apple cider vinegar stimulates your stomach acids to help your body break down proteins and fats. Keeping your digestive system healthy is a critical part of health and wellness.  

Healthy Blood Sugar Levels

When taken with meals, as little as 2 teaspoons of vinegar can help reduce the blood sugar spike in healthy adults. Each bottle of Tartly fruit shrub contains at least 2 teaspoons of organic apple cider vinegar, and is crafted to pair deliciously with food.

Flavor Without Calories

Chefs are always telling us to add acid to food to make flavors pop. We think the same works for drinks. A mouthwatering burst of acidity from the vinegar brings out the fruit flavors without adding calories. Organic apple cider vinegar has 0 calories but packs a flavorful punch in our Tartly shrubs!
