    I find this very interesting. I love vinegar and have always used a lot of varieties in my kitchen.

    I eat a lot of Japanese meals - and one thing you always have with a traditional Japanese menu is something pickled - I wonder if they are on to something there with the vinegar. This is true even at breakfast. I always keeps packs of Japanese pickled veggies in my fridge for when I feel like having that type of breakfast.

    I will try the apple cider shot and see how it goes - kind of scary for the first try though, I have to admit - just because the taste can be quite strong icon_smile.gif

    Even if the vinegar is diluted with just a little water, it would still be beneficial for digestion.

    Very interesting, thanks for posting this!

    I remember hearing about the benefits before, but I didn't realize it was only complex carbs that it helps with. I don't eat that many complex carbs anyway, but I'll have to consider using (or drinking!) some vinegar with any meal where I'm eating lots of veggies or dairy.

    i love vinegars too. sometimes when i feel i want to eat some foods with vinegar dipping i do it. vinegars are good as appetizer also.

    I was told that it helps with heartburn but it didn't really help me. I didn't mind taking a "shot" of it because I love it mixed with honey as a glaze on my chicken. I just won't use it for heartburn anymore.

    It generally helps with someone who has insufficient stomach acid when they need to boost it-if someone is either taking meds for acid reflux or does indeed have too much acid, then vinegar wouldn't be particularly helpful.

    interesting topic. i love putting vinegar in potato (and other) salad and a good malt vinegar on my fish & chips. I love pickled things - low cal, but boy oh boy, gotta watch the sodium. I could drink pickle brine like water if it wasn't for the sodium.

    my poor dad. I was about 12 and he (being separated from mum) took a couple of us kids to the science museum in Boston for one of those Saturday visitation "daddy trips". I don't remember what else we had, but i do remember making a potoato salad loaded with way too much vinegar cuz he loved it too. he made the worst face, and tried to compliment me on this un-supervised attempt, but i might as well have thrown a couple of tater cubes into a jar of vinegar and gave it to him. to this day every time I make tater salad i think of him and that little tidbit of sharing with him.

    whoa. where did that come from? mickey, you triggered a very special memory. (((hugs))) -bri

    speaking of vinegar going into potato salads, etc - picnic & bbq foods, i thought i'd put a plug in for the bbq swap

    since vinegars also make great meat tenderizers, maybe i'll include some in my swap package. hope to see you all over there.
