Is Vinegar Vegan?
Whether you’re pouring it all over a hot portion of seaside chips, or stirring it through a heart stew, vinegar has so many uses. But is it vegan?
From balsamic to malt, white wine to cider, vinegar comes in many different forms, each as tangy and varied as the next.
Vinegar is an acidic liquid that’s generally made by further fermenting wine, beer or malt. This means that there are many types to choose from when it comes to the supermarket aisles.
Is vinegar vegan?
Generally yes, vinegar is vegan as it’s made from plants like apples, grapes or barley; all of which are naturally suitable for vegans. However, if you’re buying a wine or cider vinegar, then the answer gets a little more complex. Some wines and ciders aren’t entirely vegan-friendly due to animal derivatives used during production, so it would involve further research into how the vinegar in question has been made.
