Alessi White Balsamic Vinegar
The dark red color of traditional balsamic vinegar has a tendency to overtake and dominate more delicate dishes, so Alessi came up with the idea of white balsamic vinegar. It is not cooked as long, so that it doesn't get as dark as the traditional. White balsamic still had all the unique nuances and complexities of the traditional balsamic vinegar, but it has a lighter color so it does not overpower the dishes. Alessi even owns the patent for white balsamic vinegar!
Both balsamic vinegars retain similar health benefits to those of grapes. These include being high in antioxidants, potassium, and calcium, while also being fat-free. Balsamic vinegar is also said to help fight heart diseases and osteoporosis. It also improves insulin sensitivity and helps fight diabetes.
White balsamic vinegar has a velvety tartness, but a clean and light appearance. The taste is milder and less sweet than traditional Balsamic Vinegar. It is perfect for use in salads and white sauces and on vegetables, fish, and fries. But remember, a little balsamic vinegar goes a long way!
