Assalam Alaikum.
I would like to know to know if Balsamic Vinegar is halal?
The recent topic on vinegar here only covered spirit and cider vinegar.
I can't remember if malt vinegar and rice vinegar are halal either?

Thank you.

Spirit/distilled/grain/spirit vinegars are Halaal.

Wine and Balsamic vinegars should not be used, as not 100%  of the original Alcohol content is converted to Acetic Acid(vinegar).

Rice vinegar? no idea!

Thank you Imran for the reply!
Rice vinegar is used in the preparation of rice used in japanese sushi.
You mentioned distilled vinegar as being halal.There is also undistilled malt vinegar which often goes by the name "chip shop" style vinegar as it's the same as used in chip shops.so... is undistilled vinegar also halal?

I always thought Malt Vinegar was the only safe vinegar. Going to the following websites helps, but it seems it's a personal choice If you consider 100% alcohol free as halal as explained by islamawareness then vinegar is something you should stay away from. But at the end of the day you can only make an educated choice.
