Mother Beverage will pitch their product on Sunday’s episode of Shark Tank, a product that could get some of the health conscious sharks’ attention. Mother comes from apple cider vinegar, the mother of vinegar. Apple cider vinegar that is raw and unfiltered contains wispy strands, which gives it the bitter flavor. And this is where the nutrients are hidden.
Apple cider vinegar aids in digestion, and helps with metabolism, blood sugar levels, promotes heart health, and aids in weight loss. And yet, the bitter flavor is enough to push people away. Mother Beverage wants to change that, changing the flavor to make it more appealing.
Allison discovered the benefits of apple cider vinegar when she was stressed and worn out from her work. While she loved the results she got after drinking it daily, the taste wasn’t helping. Her husband Stephen also loved the results, but couldn’t get over the taste. Together, they tried everything to make it taste better and thus, Mother Beverage was born.
In a single bottle, you’ll find 15 calories and between 2 and 4 grams of sugar, Stevia is used to sweeten the drink.
The beverage has a shelf-life for up to 6 months at room temperature if unopened. One bottle contains 1 tablespoon of vinegar.
Mother Beverages can be purchased on the company’s website. A 12-pack sampler of flavors will cost you $42, while a 24-pack will cost you $84. You can also get a berry mix or a top-selling mix of flavors. The company also offers subscription packages, giving you 12 or 24 bottles every month. The ACV infused beverage can also be purchased from Whole Foods.
Shark Tank airs Sundays at 9/8c on ABC.
