From salad dressings to marinades, and even (in some cases) a cleaning tool! With so many on the market, what is right for what - trust us you do NOT want to get these mixed up. So here is our list of thebest vinegars available today…
First let's talk about how vinegar is actually made. Vinegar is created through the fermentation of alcohol, leaving behind a sour-tasting, acidic residue. It is this alcohol that gives the vinegar it’s individual shade. The colour/shade/consistency can change over time, but this does not mean the vinegar has gone off - in fact the acid in the vinegar means it’s shelf life is incredibly long although it is still best kept out of the sun when storing.
We are often asked, ‘isvinegar good for you?’ You will all have heard of theapple cider vinegar drink and its health benefits - in particular how it can help insulin levels and lower blood sugar. This is because it has large amounts of acetic acid. This type of vinegar can also make you feel fuller than you are, due to its ability to increase your satiety levels in your body. Many people use vinegar to lose weight, shed fat (in particular tummy fat) and lower cholesterol. You’re now wondering, can you drink apple cider and vinegar and if so, thebest way to drink apple cider vinegar?! Try it here in our shrub range. We also have lots of inspiration for making healthy meals using our flavoured vinegars.
However the most exciting of all vinegars we believe is flavoured vinegars - which you can buy or make your own of. Most flavoured vinegars are made using dried or crushed fruits. Here at The Scottish Bee Company we have our very own flavoured vinegars.
