For our apple cider vinegar shots, Turmeric Apple, Cinnamon Maple, Tart Cherry and Beet are vegan. Our Ginger Pineapple and Blueberry apple cider vinegar shots use honey, so we don’t consider them vegan. For our MCT shots, Coffee and Orange Cacao are both vegan. Matcha and Turmeric Ginger shots contain a bit of honey, so we don’t consider them vegan either.
For our apple cider vinegar shots, you should be able to find them at your local Whole Foods, Sprouts, Fresh Thyme Farmers Market and a number of other natural foods retailers. Check out our find us page to locate a store selling Ethan’s near you.
For our MCT shots, currently you should be able to find them at your local Whole Foods Market.
With all that said, occasionally you might not see us on the shelves at the above retailers because the store has run out of stock. To avoid an unnecessary drive to your retailer of choice, we recommend calling ahead to make sure they have us and the specific product that you’re looking for.
We are crazy about apple cider vinegar. The health benefits are awesome - digestion and gut health, blood sugar regulation, weight loss, and more. We noticed how good we felt when we had just a few teaspoons a day, so we tinkered with flavors until we felt we found the best possible ways to drink it.
YES. All the flavors and ingredients are specifically formulated, with the help of our nutritionist, to deliver maximum functional benefit. We consider it our job to give you both maximum function and great taste.
The 2 oz serving size (one shot) is what we recommend for a daily dose. Some of us over here at Ethan’s drink 2-3 a day, but we wouldn’t recommend having any more than that. We recommend against drinking an entire 16 oz multi-serve in one sitting or one day.
For those drinking apple cider vinegar straight and experiencing any discomfort in their teeth or stomach, this is due to its inherently acidic nature. Before Ethan’s, we used to do that and felt the effects, too. Not only do our added ingredients make it better and easier to drink, they change the pH to make it less acidic and safer for your body. Apple cider vinegar has a natural pH around 2.7, while our blends are closer to 3.4. For reference, our drinks are around the pH of orange juice.
Not until you open them. Apple cider vinegar is a natural antimicrobial and will keep the product completely safe at all temperatures; however, once opened, the product should be kept in the fridge. Though we doubt it will be there for long!
Our products are pasteurized to maintain safety, portability and convenience at all temperatures. Our research shows that the benefits of apple cider vinegar are largely due to its acetic acid content, which is not affected by pasteurization. Head on over to our benefits page to learn more.
All 6 apple cider vinegar blends use only the naturally occurring sugar in our fruit juices and organic sweeteners (honey, agave, and maple syrup). Find details on this and other nutrition info on the website shop page or on the packaging itself.
We’re all about making our products safe. This applies not only to what’s inside the bottle, but the bottle itself. We use non-reactive glass packaging to make sure that what you’re drinking is the healthiest and safest product possible. If you’re interested in learning more about this, click here.
The 2 oz and 16 oz drinks are the exact same formula, just two different options so you can have one for your fridge and one for when you’re on the go and need a quick hit. We’re offering all 6 delicious flavors in 2 oz single-serve and the original 3 flavors (Turmeric Apple, Ginger Pineapple and Cinnamon Maple) in 16 oz multi-serve size.
MCT stands for medium chain triglycerides. These contain fatty acids that are more easily absorbed by the body than longer chain triglycerides, which must first pass through your digestive system in order to unlock their nutritional benefits. MCTs are absorbed directly through the liver, providing the body with fast acting, long lasting and sustained energy.
