Ginger (Switchel) Cookies

A great tasting, nature inspired EATRIGHT® cookie option with ginger (a "carminative and diaphoretic" herb), native raw bush honey (bees collecting from Kunzea ericoides, Nothofagus solandri var. solandri and fusca (endemic to the Nelson region of New Zealand), a potential claimable source of vitamin K2 and 'not from concentrate' apple cider vinegar (with beneficial the 'Mother' bacteria).

When we updated the ingredients from lemon juice to vinegar, we included "switchel" in the product name (switchel is a vinegar drink seasoned with ginger and sweetened with honey of British America origin). Importantly, we don't add water and use eg 'short time' processing techniques.

It has a solid food matrix to improve digestibility, regulation of energy and absorption of the various mineral and vitamin rich nutrients.
