Vinegar is an acidic liquid made by fermenting a plant-matter. Mostly sourced from fruit-juice like apple-cider, wine or grains like rice.

If the Vinegar is vegan, would depend on how it was processed. There is chance it was filtered with an animal by-product.

When made from wine or beer that have already been fined by isinglass or gelatin, such vinegar is non-vegan since an animal was exploited in the process.

Not very common is vinegar that contains honey, which will usually be stated on the label.


It can be used in cooking and pickling, or cleaning.

A Vinaigrette is a dressing that uses oil and something sour, like vinegar or lemon-juice.
