White Wine Vinegar

White wine vinegar is white wine that has been fermented and oxidized into an acid with a lightly fruity flavor. The distilling process usually takes place in stainless steel vats called acetators that expose the ethanol in the wine to oxygen. The resulting acetic acid is then diluted with water to a palatable acidity, somewhere between 5 and 7 percent

White vinegar typically consists of 4–7% acetic acid and 93–96% water.

Consumption is safe in moderation but could be dangerous in excess amounts or alongside certain medications.
