Sparkling Balsamic Water and Blood Sugar

Sparkling Balsamic Water and Blood Sugar

Historically, the medical uses of acetic acid are seemingly endless and include diagnostic uses for cervical cancer, treatment for cancerous tumors, antiseptic for strep throat, and topically for some strains of antibiotic-resistant skin infections. The name acetic acid derives from acetum, the Latin word for vinegar, and is the main active compound in balsamic vinegar. With all of its practical uses, researchers in recent years name even more benefits of this active compound, commonly consumed as vinegar.

In 2005, in a study conducted by Lund University in Sweden, researchers found that supplementing your meal with vinegar lowers the glycemic index of bread in a meal, helping to avoid blood sugar spikes. While the study also found an increase in satiety, or feeling full, but noted the subjective nature of that part of the study. The study stated the health benefits of consuming fermented foods and the exciting research that is yet to come.

Today, many health benefits newly associated with adding vinegar to your diet have been tested and approved, but people still find it difficult to stomach the puckery taste. V₂O uses white balsamic vinegar in its sparkling balsamic water, which offers all of the same health benefits and leaves the mouth with a much sweeter taste.

With research, case studies, and years of experience in the balsamic vinegar world, the V₂O team introduced Sicilian Lemon and V₂O Cranberry Pear to the Oklahoma City market and plans to expand soon.
