Jeff Novick Chimes in on Infused Flavored Balsamic Vinegars


Infused Balsamic or Balsamic Crack?

2 very short excerpts from a long, informative post:

When he first brought them in, we immediately knew something was up cause they tasted WAY too good :) and clearly rung the pleasure trap bell. They just tasted too good and many people who tasted them just wanted "more." For some who tried them, they caused a spike in their blood sugars. 
After looking into them, and understanding how they were made and what they were really the equivalent of, we decided against using them. We saw them basically as "added sugar" and counted them as such. 
And his concluding lines:

So, if someone is using more than 2-3 tbsp of these a day, that alone is causing them to exceed my sugar guidelines. 
And, if they struggle with the pleasure trap, any amount may be too much.
