Science - Wine / Oenology / Viticulture / apple vinegar
Italian term or phrase: rigenerazione della madre
Not sure whether to place this question under chemistry or oenology...

Description of apple vinegar:
ACETO DI MELE
Aceto genuino prodotto con solo sidro. Gusto gradevole e delicato, molto persistente. Acidità 5%.

La presenza di sospensioni dovute alla rigenerazione della madre comprova la naturalezza del prodotto!

any idea on what this "rigenerazione della madre" might be?

Thanks, D.

regeneration of the "mother"
Explanation:
What is “Mother”?

“Mother” of vinegar will naturally occur in vinegar products as the result of the vinegar bacteria itself. Mother is actually cellulose (a natural carbohydrate which is the fiber in foods like celery and lettuce) produced by the harmless vinegar bacteria. Today, most manufacturers pasteurize their product before bottling to prevent these bacteria from forming “mother” while sitting on the retail shelf.
After opening, you may notice “mother” beginning to form. Vinegar containing “mother” is not harmful or spoiled. Just remove the substance by filtering and continue to enjoy the product.
