    Hi,
    I bought USDA Organic Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar to add to my chicks waterer. Someone told me the packaging needs to say "raw", so does that mean the ACV that I should not be given to the chicks water? It's from a local grocery store called ALDI. Thanks.

    Also, I just joined BYC! [​IMG]

    Thanks for the response. [​IMG]

    The label says "Organic Apple cider Vinegar with 5% acidity plus Mother" and then says it is unpasteurized, naturally gluten free, unfiltered, and rich in enzymes and potassium.

    That sounds right. I think the "raw" part is just about it being unpasteurized and probably unfiltered.
