Balsamic vinegar is very different from the regular white vinegar used in kitchens today. Plain, white vinegar can be used for cleaning and many at-home remedies, as well as baking, weight control and even getting rid of weeds in your garden. Balsamic vinegar is mainly used to enhance culinary needs, along with improving skin health, reducing blood sugar and many other health benefits.
You should know that there is a difference between Italian vinegar and balsamic vinegar. A vinegar can not be considered balsamic unless it passes the regulation of Italian law. After it complies with these regulations, the vinegar will fall under two primary categories: Traditional Balsamic Vinegar DOP (Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale DOP) and Balsamic Vinegar of Modena IGP (Aceto Balsamico di Modena IGP).
