Introduction. Vinegar is known with its positive impact on post-prandial dysmetabolism. The aim of this study was to elucidate the acute effects of high amount vinegar on blood glucose and lipid parameters. Material and Methods. Sixteen type 2 diabetic patients who had been treated with metformin only, were served a standardized meal to which 50 g vinegar was added on the first day but not on the second day. Blood glucose, insulin and lipid levels were measured during fasting and at the second hour after intake of the meal. Results. Postprandial increase in the levels of venous blood glucose measurements was not different in the vinegar group when compared with the reference group (p=0.163). There was no significant difference on postprandial insulinemia (p=0.796). While investigating the effect of the vinegar on postprandial lipemia, no differences in triglyceride changes was found between vinegar and reference group (p=0.816). Conclusion. In this study in which we have tried to find an answer to the question about the effect of high amount grape vinegar on postprandial metabolism, no favorable or deleterious effect on postprandial changes of glycemia and lipemia was found.
