Known since biblical times and as old as vines and wine, vinegar has found very different uses over the centuries. Also appreciated for its antiseptic and antifermentative properties, it is used not only for gastronomic use but also in numerous pharmaceutical and cosmetic preparations.
In the world different types of vinegar are produced, from fruit, beer, rice, molasses, etc. From all that can be fermented, vinegar can be made. Although in Italy the term “vinegar” means only wine vinegar.
Vinegar is spontaneously formed from any natural sweet juice and its production process has been known for millennia. In particular, the Babylonians, and later the Greeks, used it as a preservative, as a condiment and flavoring. A legend has it that Hannibal paved his way through the Alps by pouring vinegar on the rocks heated with fire.
