Developed by the Shanxi Provincial Vinegar Business Association, a new national standard for aged vinegar has passed through national assessment and is expected to be implemented at the end of this year.

The acidity, one of the major indicators, was modified from 4.5 percent to 6 percent in the new national standard regulation. The change means that there is no need to add any preservatives to keep the product from going bad and the shelf life will be abolished.
