‘Mother’ of vinegar will naturally occur in vinegar products as the result of the vinegar bacteria itself. Mother is actually cellulose (a natural carbohydrate which is in the fibre in foods like celery and lettuce) produced by the harmless vinegar bacteria. Today, most manufacturers pasteurize their product before bottling to prevent these bacteria from forming ‘mother’ while sitting on the retail shelf. Mother can be removed by filtering through for example, a cheese cloth.
