Champagne vinegar is vinegar made from the same kinds of grapes that are used to make champagne. The grapes are fermented and then distilled into vinegar. The result is a light vinegar that tastes similar to champagne.
A Natural Process
Grapes are Paleo, and although our cavemen ancestors probably weren’t distilling them into vinegar, they weren’t complete strangers to fermented foods either. Fermentation is a natural process that happens in the wild and animals have been known to seek out fermenting fruit on the forest floor.
The Health Benefits
We already know that grapes have health benefits, but what about vinegar? Does distilling the grapes destroy those nutrients?
Yes and no. Champagne vinegar doesn’t have a lot of the vitamins and minerals found in raw grapes, but vinegar has been noted for some of its own health benefits, such as improving insulin sensitivity.
