Marukan vinegars are slowly and naturally brewed using a traditional technique developed by over three centuries of experience producing vinegars with legendary taste and mildness. Rice vinegar is made by fermenting rice and sake lees (rice mash) resulting in delicate acidity, fragrance, and mellow sweetness. It is a common flavoring for many Asian cuisines and Japan in particular where it is an essential ingredient in making sushi.
Genuine brewed rice vinegar is the unadulterated original recipe.
Seasoned gourmet rice vinegar is carefully blended with salt and sugar and can be used to make sushi rice by simply mixing with steamed short grain rice.
Lite seasoned rice vinegar is a healthier version of seasoned gourmet rice vinegar.
Uses: Rice vinegar can be used to heighten the flavor of almost any food. Use it to make cold pickles such as sunomono or add it to braises, soups, and dips to add contrast and flavor. Vinegar can remove gamey and fishy odors when used in marinades or added directly to foods.
