SAFAKNA TURKEY- Vinegar is one of the indispensable conditions of the culinary culture of our country, as well as in many countries of the world. The purpose of using vinegar is to extend the time of use while retaining nutrients, just like when making pickles. It is also used to add flavor to dishes and salads. The use of vinegar, which has a deep history, dates back to the Assyrians and Sumerians about 10,000 years ago. It is known that vinegar was widely used by the founder of medicine Hippocrates to eliminate infections.
Vinegar, which can be obtained from many carbohydrate source foods, varies depending on the type of fruit produced, and is also produced by fermenting fruit varieties containing intense acid.
