Balsamic Vinegar
Ame122 posted:
Hello ladies, Okay, after 2 plates of green later today, I just wondered whether balsamic vinegar was safe to eat while pregnant. But it tasted so good. I goolged it and there wasn't enough info about whether it's bad or good. In fact, one lady craved for pineapple dipped in a bowl of balsamic vinegar and had it at every chance she got! Oh I did ask my OB about pineapple and she said go ahead and eat it. Any fruits are good for you. So about that balsamic vinegar, what do y'all ladies think??? TIA.

Hi! Basalmic Vinegar (and apple cider) have great health benefits and I was okayed for both with my first pregnancy. It does everything from aide calcium absorbtion to control blood sugar and several other things... also it is a great choice rather than something fattier like ranch dressing etc. Eat up mama!
rosemary1977 responded:
just curious...what would be the concern regarding balsamic vinegar?
Ame122 responded:
Because I saw the nutrients content in the back of the bottle and it said "May contain Sulfites". I'm not sure if Sulfites is okay for pregnant women. I had 2 plates of green yesterday with nothing else but Balsamic Vinegar. It helps me with morning sickness. And it's so good. But these ladies were wonderful. Their responses really help me calm down. That doesn't mean I will stop having it completely. Maybe once in a while.

did it contain sulfite?
KBBBBB replied to hellokiddy's response:
I read on the shelf at the market that the red wine vinegars and balsamic vinegars contained lead. That is what concerned me.
stressingmom responded:
I only put oil and balsamic vinegar on every salad I eat. I love it! I have a beautiful, healthy 2 year old at home and I ate through my whole pregnancy with him and am now 8 weeks pregnant and can't even count how many times I've eaten it! If there was a known problem, it defnitely would have popped up on one of those "what not to eat" lists.
