Anyone knows where I can find white, clear vinegar for consumption?
I like to use it for salad dressings, can't get used to the wine vinegar and others...
You can find white cleaning vinegar in every shop but not consumption vinegar.
Tried Mercadona, Lidl, Hiperdino, Spar...
I did find this brand on the Spanish mainland and think I saw some sauces of the same brand at Hiperdino yesterday but no white vinegar.
It's used in Belgium, Netherlands, UK, Norway and Germany, maybe I could find this in the south of the island?
I live in Parque Holandes but anywhere is fine, gives me a chance to visit the island :)

We've been looking as well!   When I asked in Mercadona all she showed me was white wine vinegar and didn't seem to understand what I meant by white vinegar!

So if you do find it anywhere, please let me know!   I'll let you know if I find it.

Ok, I will!
Same thing in Mercadona, they don't know it exists in consumable version, never heard of it...
What side of the island are you looking?
I think we might get a better chance in the south with the German community but I'm not sure.

I live in Triquivijate.  There is a shop in Caleta that I've not been in yet, but a specialist shop, mainly Indian but I believe other items as well.   Probably going into Caleta on Friday, so will pop in then and let you know

Fingers crossed!
Don't know if Aldi will have it, they didn't on the peninsula but maybe here, who knows?
Opening somewhere next September.

Aldi will be next to Mercadona in Puerto.  But I will be very surprised if they manage to open in September.  Went past there last week and it's still only the steel framework up!!

There is an Indian shop in Caleta.next to Bahia Sol Apartments. You may find that white vinegar there. They keep foodstuffs from other ethnicity too.

Yesterday they were building up the walls, the roof was finished last week I think, they were on it the whole week.

Once they're starting with the walls it goes pretty fast :)
