If you are assuming adding vinegar to a recipe will lower blood sugar, don't. The only vinegar tested that lowered blood sugar was apple cider vinegar so there's no reason to recommend recipes with balsamic vinegar (5 times the sugar of ACV), sherry (balsamic vinegar with added sherry flavoring) or rice wine vinegar and any other vinegar as having the same effect on blood sugar. Scientifically inaccurate. In order to get the blood glucose lowering effect of apple cider vinegar in this recipe,you'd have to use it and NOT balsamic or sherry plus eat the entire recipe for breakfast. ACV was tested with a bagel and orange juice in one study and before breakfast on an empty stomach in others.
