Popularly made and used in China and Japan, Rice Vinegar is a type of vinegar made from fermented rice or rice wine. It has only about 4 to 5 per cent acidity, and therefore has a mild, slightly-sweet flavour. Rice vinegar is either colourless or pale yellow. The taste of rice vinegar varies from region to region, some being slightly more acidic than others. For example, Chinese rice vinegars are stronger in flavour than Japanese variants.

How to select
• Read the label carefully to ensure that it is rice vinegar.
• The colour is generally pale yellow. Check that as well.
• Rice vinegar is available in small and large bottles – so choose the quantity you need.
• Check the bottle for damages, and verify the expiry date as well.

Culinary uses
