Red Wine Vinegar Substitute

Vinegar is very high in amines, so I have come up with vinegar substitutions that are amine-allergy friendly. These vinegar substitutions are low amine, delicious, and easy to make.

Use if your diet will allow for it, otherwise opt for an unsweetened pomegranate juice.
