More about red wine vinegar

This vinegar is made from fermenting grape juice, and we suspect that it is usually made from poor quality wine grade grapes.  The more expensive brands have been aged in wooden barrels, and are darker in color. We suspect that the darker color comes from the wood in the barrels. The lower priced brands are lighter in color and more transparent.

This fermented grape vinegar is excellent for making salad dressings.  The higher quality vinegars are best to use with unseasoned oil and vinegar dressings.  If other seasonings are added, we have found that less expensive brands are perfectly acceptable, because the seasonings partially mask the flavor of the vinegar.

We could not find any compressive nutritional information for red wine vinegar. However, we did find some other information:

Red wine vinegar boasts antioxidants that may fight bacterial infections and skin damage. These are primarily anthocyanins — pigments that give fruits and vegetables their blue, red, and purple colors. Additionally, a test-tube study determined that the anthocyanin content of red wine vinegar depends on the type and quality of red wine used to make it. Vinegars made with Cabernet Sauvignon tend to offer the most, providing up to 20 anthocyanin compounds.

Some background information:

Over the years, people have been asking us, “What do vegans eat?” This is probably because they first think about a flesh product first and everything else as a side dish. So, we began publishing the huge variety of plant foods that are available for us to eat in this section of our web site. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for something new to add to our collection and experiment with to incorporate into our meals. We have also found that eating mostly unprocessed plant foods make us much more healthy.
