In the production of fruit vinegars opposites meet and show that wonderful things can arise from this combination. Old and new production processes are combined at Pödör and allow for the creation of fruit vinegars that are incomparable in taste. The process from the fruit to the bottle is also simple and complex:
First of all the fully matured fruit is harvested and juiced. This is followed by the first fermentation process whereby the fruit juice turns into wine. By way of natural fermentation a fluid containing alcohol and sugar results. The insider term for this process is "maceration".
In the next step Pödör follows the so-called submerged fermentation process which is also known as the acetator process. In small production facilities the acetic bacteria are kept suspended in the fluid under controlled ventilation. In this way the temperature can be continually checked and kept stable so that the vinegar can ferment in an optimal environment.
At Pödör only small facilities are in use as the ventilation systems operate on the Venturi principle. The fermentation process takes longer because of it; however the end product is much more aromatic.
So as you can see we do not use additives or artificial aromas at any stage. We are convinced that for high quality vinegars nothing other than first class raw materials is required. Due to the gentle production of the vinegars many substances are retained and find their way into the bottles. Pödör vinegars are not filtered and that is why pectins, secondary plant compounds, vitamins, trace elements and minerals are contained in concentrated form.
When it is all about creating vinegars we at Pödör know no limits! We have made it our objective to bring variety into your salad bowl. For instance with natural vinegars from all kinds of fruits each of which tastes completely different. You will be surprised how distinct the aroma of each individual vinegar is. From mildly fruity over tart to intensively exotic, the range of tastes is simply endless. Due to the near-natural processing of fresh fruit juice the taste, aroma and color of the fruit remain in the vinegar. One more reason to choose vinegars from Pödör.
