Vinegar is used far more widely than as a seasoning for food.
Vinegar is a traditional ingredient which has been used for centuries. It is recognised as being a safe and wholesome part of the every day diet.
Here are some examples, from Japan about rice vinegar. Let’s have a look at them.
The most well known property of vinegar is that it helps preserve food *. Our forefathers knew about the power of vinegar through personal experience. For instance, sushi and rice cooked with a dash of vinegar were often used for packed lunches during the summer, and fish was marinated in vinegar to preserve its freshness.
*Mizkan has conducted joint research with academic institutions such as Nagoya University and Okayama University to verify “the antibacterial properties of vinegar (the effect of reducing or suppressing the growth of bacteria)”
