FAQ

HERE ARE ANSWERS TO SOME OF THE THINGS YOU MOST REGULARLY ASK US

  1. HOW MANY CALORIES ARE IN MOTHER ROOT?

    Mother Root is a healthier alternative to alcohol. Not only because there is no alcohol, but also because each measure is lower in calories. A standard 25ml measure of Mother Root contains 34 calories. That’s around 1/4 of the calories in a 125ml glass of red wine.

  2. IS MOTHER ROOT VEGAN?

    Our Ginger Switchel contains honey as the natural sweetener which is not strictly vegan, as it is made by bees. We are working on adding new flavours to the Mother Root range, which will include vegan options.

  3. IS MOTHER ROOT GLUTEN FREE?

    Yes, Mother Root is gluten free.

  4. DOES MOTHER ROOT CONTAIN SUGAR?

    Our Ginger Switchel contains naturally occurring sugar from honey. We do not include refined sugar.

  5. CAN YOU DRINK MOTHER ROOT WHILE PREGNANT?

    Yes! Mother Root is pasteurised and safe to consume while pregnant.

  6. HOW MUCH APPLE CIDER VINEGAR IS IN MOTHER ROOT?

    One 25ml measure of Ginger Switchel is the equivalent of 1/4 of your daily recommended dose of 2 tsp of Apple Cider Vinegar. This means you can have up to 100ml of Mother Root per day to take the equivalent of 2 tsp of Apple Cider Vinegar.

  7. ARE THERE HEALTH BENEFITS TO DRINKING APPLE CIDER VINEGAR ?

    You can expect more stable blood sugar after meals. Drinking apple cider vinegar before a high-carbohydrate meal has been shown to reduce the blood sugar spikes which would usually occur as your body converts the food into glucose to be used as energy. You might also find yourself with better digestion as the acetic acid it contains is thought to help digest proteins.
