To review the evidence up to the year 2014 on the use of vinegar please see Petsiou et al (2014) where 24 studies in humans and 21 in animals and were reviewed as to the effect of vinegar on glucose, lipid, metabolism or body weight. This review also identified gaps in the research some of which have since been answered. (Petsiou et al, 2014) https://academic.oup.com/nutritionreviews/article-abstract/72/10/651/1935511
