Where do the calories come from in vinegar?

Apparently 10 Tbsp of red wine vinegar, for instance, has over 28 calories but just 0.4g carbs, 0.1g protein, and no fat. The numbers for distilled vinegar are even more weird. I'm pretty sure its not very alcoholic but is that where those calories come from?

I just don't know where else to ask this. I'm merely curious for the sake of curiosity. I don't restrict calories and don't consume cup after cup of vinegar but I'm still curious.

Not sure what's the point here... I'm curious for curiosity sake. It's a science question, not a diet question.

...but seriously? that's 2.8 calories per tablespoon. That's less than one calorie per teaspoon.

Had biochemistry in my studies, that's what probably messed me up ;)

Awesome did you know that off the top of your head or did you look it up? Where did you find it? I googled my question without luck.

Acetic acid. Can be converted to Acetyl-CoA which enters the Krebs cycle.
