Balsamic Vinegar of Modena protagonist among young people in Germany and USA: a healty and natural choice


According to a recent study by the Consortium Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, that has involved people coming from Germany and USA, the profile of the consumer of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena is well defined.

Interviewed people, with an age between 25 and 55 years, result with common characteristics: they are curious about food world and particular tastes, they look for taste even in the fastest occasions (lunches at job or the food “on the go”) or the salads, the dish of vegetables and “depurative diets”; and they are experienced and skilled in the kitchen or such considered in friends opinions.

They are also people that love to experiment, learning new recipes and modifying them to their liking and comparing with different culinary tradition.

From the lifestyle and from the approach to food of interviewed people, it is possible therefore to define some common

choices: as the attention to healthy products, to fitness, and to the importance to vary food as often as possible, the choice of fresh and less calories (it is impossible to define “healthy eating” if we don’t’ think about “eating well”).

The majority of interviewed has also underlined the importance to prepare and to choose the foods that is savoury but in a healthier way thanks to the use of spice and seasonings, way of cooking that exalt the tastes, the combination of ingredients with particular characteristics.

The different tendencies are in accord with the most general attention to the origin and the quality of foods and to the preference for short supply chain products and to certified biological origin.

The image spontaneously associated to the Balsamic Vinegar of Modena reveals some stereotypical pictures of the country and the Italian province and an ideal of “well living” linked to holidays and Mediterranean countries.

The result of this interesting study is therefore a further goad for Aceto Balsamico del Duca to keep on proposing a high quality Balsamic Vinegar, obtained by Italian certified raw materials, sometimes exquisitely local as “Solo Modena” and certified organic.

The passion and the experience set in every phase of the production, countersign the family Grosoli and allow them to propose always a Balsamic Vinegar of Modena “Al vertice del sapore”.
