    Vinegar and Its Many Uses!

    Acetic Acid

    Vinegar comes from the French word vinaigre, which means "sour wine."
    It is an acidic liquid acquired from the fermentation of alcohol. It is
    used either as a condiment or a preservative. It has an acid content of
    4 to 8 percent. In flavor it may be sharp, rich, or mellow. It is often
    used to preserve herbs or for medicinal purposes. The vinegar most
    often used medicinally is Apple cider vinegar.


    * It helps to make more efficient use of calcium in the body, and
    can help to encourage strong bones, hair, and nails......
