Benefits of Red Wine Vinegar
- Red wine vinegar may help you keep your blood sugar levels in check. According to a study in the US vinegar eaten with a normal meal slowed the body's response to a carbohydrate-heavy meal.
- Red wine vinegar is a good way to add flavor to foods without adding calories. One tbsp. of vinegar---more than you'd probably want to use on a salad---contains 3 calories and no fat. Compare that with Caesar salad dressing, which has 78 calories and 8.5g of fat per tbsp.
- Red wine vinegar is acidic, and acid is particularly important in the culinary world. Acid is the only food additive other than salt which can actually make foods taste more like themselves.
- You can use red wine vinegar to punch up the flavor of your favorite healthy foods. For example, a vinaigrette for a salad will help pull out the flavor of tomatoes and bitter greens, so that you won't need high-fat cream-based salad dressings. You can also make red wine vinegar reduction to serve with chicken or steak, so that you won't need a butter-filled pan sauce.
