I'm wondering if vinegar is paleo or at least not bad for you? Can someone tell me what is in vinegar? And if I was to buy it from the store what type should I get? Id like to also ask the same question for mustard, too. Thanks!

Vinegar is simply acetic acid in water. Totally paleo; in fact our bodies actually make acetic acid when detoxifying alcohol, and use it for energy. Any vinegar is fine, even distilled (though paleo fanatics will dispute this.) Mustard generally... (more)

Is good quality Raw Apple Cider Vinegar much better than other vinegars (white, rice, pasteurized)? My choice is 32 oz raw ACV for about 5$ or a gallon of white vinegar for about 3$. It's been a while but I remember the ACV having a positive... (more)

ACV is a fermented food and contains probiotics. Distilled White Vinegar is just the pure acid. You wouldn't use ACV to clean your house, or your windows, nor in bone broth where the heat would kill the probiotics, you'd use it in salads where... (more)

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... (more)

Vinegar does not kill bacteria, fungi or parasites inside your intestine. Vinegar helps with digestion, in particular makes it easy to break down starch and carbs. It also has many good micro-nutriments. You don't need to gargle after... (more)

There's scant protein in broth and what is there has been denatured pretty far. So I don't think it's enzymatic activity (how much really is in ACV? not much). More likely you're doing something to the mineral salts present - going cloudy would... (more)

Try going VLC for a week to if your symptoms improve. It seems like you have some sort of gut dysbosis. Although a long shot, get your thyroid checked. Low stomach acid might be a symptom of hypothyroidism. _Lazza

Your body generates and neutralizes quite a bit of acid daily. Don't over-think it.

Use it as if it were soy sauce. It's different, definitely don't think that it will taste the same as soy sauce, but will fit the bill nicely. I use in stir fries, marinades, salad dressings, over sashimi, dipping sauces, and more. Good stuff! I... (more)

White vinegar is fairly purified, and the process and acidity are likely enough to ensure that any GM proteins left are pretty much destroyed, if you're afraid of GMOs.

Total anecdata, but I think I've identified balsamic vinegar as one of the things that can really help with constipation. I know some people recommend apple cider vinegar in water - I just put balsamic on my salad and it helps the same way.
