You speak, we listen!
At SlapSlop we listen to our customers and we improve our delicious products in order to make them tastier and, in this case, healthier! Need proof? Look at some of the health benefits of apple cider vinegar to your health!
About a month ago, at the Joogafestival in Tallinn, one of our customers asked about the kind of vinegar we used on our products DateChup, Papaceitunas, Mojo Rojo and Gazpacho Kumato. At that time, we used a high-quality, soft white wine vinegar on every product but DateChup. For our organic-dates-and-tomato ketchup, we already used apple vinegar.
This customer then went on to explaining how much healthier it would be to use naturally fermented apple cider vinegar instead of the other one, particularly on the raw products. We immediately went into action and, for the next batch of products, we switched to this new vinegar. In order to get the right taste and required acidity, the recipes needed some tweaking here and there but we finally came up with the correct amounts until we were very, very happy with the final outcome.
The result is amazing. The taste is subtler and less aggressive on the mouth and stomach. It is also much easier to digest as the apple cider vinegar is softer and easier on your digestion.
From SlapSlop, we want to thank our customers for their continuous feedback and we want to invite them to try our newly upgraded products. Thanks again and Slap the Slop!
