What you heard is correct. When you add balsamic vinegar to your pasta, it helps lower your blood sugar and assists you with weight loss. This is how it works:

·     Pasta is high in starch, which causes sugar spikes and weight gain.

·     Balsamic vinegar, on the other hand, has low glycemic index and is low in calories.

·     When this vinegar is added to pasta, the acetic acid in the vinegar slows down the absorption of sugar from the pasta. Thus, it controls sudden sugar spikes.

·     It also acts as an appetite suppressant and makes you feel satiated.
