Augafrex Vinegars

A brand new range for 2008. The Augafrex range of botanical extracts has been developed from the requirement for totally natural water soluble botanical extracts. These products do not contain any chemical preservatives but instead make use of the unique properties of acetic acid both for preservation but also as a solvent.
Specially developed, cold extraction techniques enable extracts to be produced which contain a unique suite of plant derived compounds.
