rice vinegar
what is it?

Chinese or Japanese vinegars made from rice wine. Rice vinegar generally has a mild, sweet taste because it contains about 4 to 5% acidity, compared to 5 to 7% for most other vinegars. While white rice vinegar is the most commonly-called-for variety, there are also red and black rice vinegars used in Chinese cuisine, and seasoned rice vinegar (seasoned with sugar and salt) used in Japanese cuisine, most notably for seasoning sushi rice.
