The bulk of the chemical and physical properties of vinegar come from its two major components, which are acetic acid and water.

It’s the product of two biochemical processes. These processes are alcoholic fermentation and acid fermentation. Alcoholic fermentation converts natural sugar to alcohol.

Acid fermentation converts alcohol to acid via microorganisms, which are present in the air, we breathe, called acetobacter.

The acid part of vinegar is what gives it its sour taste and its antiseptic (germ killing) properties as well as its cleaning properties. See more at
