Can I eat Vinegar on Ignite?

  • I see that malt vinegar is off the list during ignite, but can I have balsamic or red wine vinegar on my salads and greens?

    I was actually curious about this myself because every now and then, I love to have balsamic vinegar on my salad. In researching online, I found this by Dr. Stephen Wangen, a board certified physician specializing in digestive disorders:

    "Other vinegars, such as red wine vinegar, apple cider vinegar, and balsamic vinegar also do not contain gluten. They are not derived from a gluten grain, therefore they never had gluten to begin with.
    The primary exception to all of this is malt vinegar. “Malt” can almost always be assumed to mean “barley malt.” Barley is of course a gluten grain, and malt vinegar is generally not a distilled vinegar. Therefore there is gluten in malt vinegar. "

    So it looks like we are in the clear with balsamic vinegar and red wine vinegar. Enjoy!

      Apple cider vinegar is called for as part of the dressing for alot of the recipes and pretty sure rice (wine) vinegar is safe too since rice isnt a gluten.
