This product is natural unprocessed and healthy vinegar. It can be added to many dishes. It can certainly be used to replace white vinegar. White vinegar is made from corn and is processed and unnatural. Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar is raw and unprocessed. Because it is not strained, it includes a healthy component called "the mother" which is the cloudy substance at the bottom. Apple cider vinegar has a decidedly different taste than white vinegar.
