8. I just purchased vinegar and it has sediment floating within the product? What is it called and is it ok to use?
The transparent sediment is called Mother that is actually used to produce vinegar in its beginning state. It is used to ferment and oxide sugars and alcohol to acid, thus creating vinegar. The vinegar is then distilled and pasteurized to remove this unsightly substance.
On a rare occasion some Mother may still be present, even after filtration and pasteurization. Mother is perfectly safe and part of the normal process of vinegar.
