Is Balsamic Vinegar Acidic?

Balsamic vinegar is acidic, a property from which it gains its sour flavor much the way lemon juice derives its sourness from citric acid. Some food experts offer a theory that balsamic vinegar may be harmful due to its acidic nature. Acetic acid (the type of acid present in balsamic vinegar), when consumed in the right quantity, stimulates the thyroid gland to pull phosphorus from the adrenal glands to negate the effects of acetic acid in the system. Depleted phosphorus results in impaired function of the adrenal glands and thus the entire endocrine system. The outcome of all this can include pain in the heart, rapid pulse, increased mucous production and headaches. Whether or not this theory is true remains to be seen.
