Our expert says:
All vinegars that you list will lower the GI of a food or a meal. The vinegar seems to slow down the absorption of carbohydrates which will then cause a more gradual increase in blood glucose levels and also not overstimulate your insulin secretion. Maintaining steady blood glucose and insulin levels will in turn promote weightloss. The principle applies to any carbohydrates, vegetables, legume or salad. For example acid sorghum porridge which is eaten in some parts of this country has a lower GI than standard cooked sorghum porridge.
