Cane vinegar is a traditional Filipino vinegar made from local sugar cane plants. Despite being made from a sugar crop, cane vinegar is not sweet at all. This vinegar has a very distinctive taste and comes in two main variants that have completely different flavors. Cane vinegar is also available spiced with traditional aromatics.
Cane vinegar is made by fermenting the syrup of crushed sugar cane and is lighter in color with a fresher flavor.
Sukang iloco is made by fermenting molasses, a byproduct of sugar production, to make a deeply complex, earthy, and fruity vinegar with a flavor that is somewhat like sherry or black vinegar.
