Oro del Desierto Balsamic Vinegar
With an elegant tin label, this is a organic production balsamic wine vinegar. We add acetic bacteria to transform alcohol into acetic acid and mix it with concentrated organic grape juice. In addition, we let it macerate for 18 months in barrels, to get a more concentrated aroma and flavor.
Vinegar is made up of acetic acid and water, so it is often thought to be unhealthy to consume. It is even claimed, incorrectly, that acetic acid attacks the stomach and intestinal mucosa.
Indeed, if you drink several liters of vinegar a day, it will have a negative effect on your health. Apple cider vinegar, for example, in addition to vitamins, provides trace elements, minerals, fiber and various enzymes.
Wine vinegar is also very healthy, providing vitamins, minerals and proteins. We must avoid low prices, since they are vinegars with excessive levels of acetic acid. Even wine vinegar is not recommended when it exceeds 3% acetic acid, as it can contribute to the formation of different ulcers.
How to buy vinegar
To buy healthy vinegar we must look for brands of organic production, which guarantees that harmful components have been eliminated. Also, opt for naturally cloudy-looking vinegars, preferably apple cider vinegar. In this way, in addition to the acetic acid, digestive and disinfectant, it will contain all the vitamins, minerals and trace elements of apples.
Also avoid pasteurized vinegars, because heating them (= pasteurizing) loses important ingredients.
How to preserve balsamic vinegar
Of course, in a closed and cool place. This type of high-quality products are usually sensitive to light, heat and oxygen. For this reason, we must keep the bottle tightly closed, thus preventing its delicious flavor from changing.
