Potion for a flat stomach
A study published in the Journal of Functional Food attributed pomegranate vinegar's role as a 'belly splitter' to its ability to reduce visceral fat mass in obese subjects.
This result is due to the combination of vinegar and the antioxidants contained in pomegranate, which, by preventing blood sugar spikes, balance and stabilise the release of insulin, which plays a direct role in the accumulation of calories and fat, especially in the abdominal area.
The recipe includes:
- a glass of cold seltzer water
- a small cup of pomegranate vinegar
- a pinch of artificial sweetener, sugar or our honey.
Drink this super tonic twice a day, either after or during meals.
Ingredient in cocktails
Pomegranate vinegar is perfect for making shrub, the famous sour syrups made from citrus peel or fruit in general, juice, sugar and vinegar or distillates, a key ingredient in making great cocktails.
Alternatively, it can simply be added to dry white wines or champagnes to add a pleasantly acidic note.
