Most supermarket vinegar is not organic and is devoid of many benefits which its organic alternative contains. The main reason behind non-organic product is the demand of the customer. Patricia Bragg mentions in her book that most customers do not buy vinegar for health benefits. They want it for flavoring, pickling or marinating their food.
