Seasoned rice vinegar, or sushi vinegar, is a sweetened rice vinegar for seasoning rice for sushi rice. It usually contains additives and sweeteners.
Use seasoned rice vinegar to make sushi rice. It contains fructose corn syrup, salt, sugar, and MSG. It’s a convenient condiment if you frequently make sushi at home.
To make sushi rice, pour and mix it into steamed rice.
I prefer making my own sushi vinegar when I make sushi rice. Not only won’t it contain additives and artificial sweeteners, it tastes much better than the commercial variety.
