Diet and balsamic vinegar: what we need to know

The balsamic vinegar is known for its incredible versatility and capability to be matched with every plate; but did you know that it has notorious benefits in diets? Let’s find out its properties!

The balsamic vinegar is able to reduce glucose absorption. It is no coincidence that this precious food has been used since ancient times as well as a dressing in the clothing of a medicine.

Just think that, according to a research conducted by the University of Adelaide (Australia), balsamic vinegar would have a formidable anticancer action. As if that was not enough, the latter would act on fat reserves, favouring weight loss. Moreover, according to a study conducted by the University of Seoul, balsamic vinegar would help to prevent the onset of diabetes. However, according to experts, those who suffer from gastro-oesophageal reflux and / or gastritis, it would be best not to overdo it with the consumption of balsamic vinegar. As far as the line is concerned, however, no problem, since the latter has a low-calories content.

Balsamic vinegar can be used without any restriction within a diet, as it has a rather modest calories content (only 100 calories per 100 grams). The calories intake is almost null, considering that just a few drops are enough to flavour dishes. This food can be a worthy ally to weight loss when it is used as a substitute for salt, butter and vegetable oils. Unfortunately, the growing success of balsamic vinegar has led many companies to produce poor quality and low cost. Products from which it would be good to stay wide, as these are artificially enriched products with caramel, dyes, preservatives and aromatic substances. As it is not enough, these products are diluted with common vinegar. As far as conservation is concerned, to prevent the product from altering, it would be good to put it in a glass container, closing it properly.
