Rice Wine and Sake

Parent Category: Wine and Champagne
Rice wine, a popular alcoholic beverage in Asian countries, uses the amylolytic process to ferment rice starch into sugars. Contrary to common belief, sake would be better described as rice beer, rather than rice wine, because it uses a brewing process to ferment the rice starch.
Any alcohol should be evaporated while it is cooked. However, consume it in small amounts.
In most dishes it should be very similar. The rice wine vinegar will have a bit more acidity to it. It will be similar in the chemical reactions with the recipe, but there will be a subtle difference in flavors.
rice is not good for you if you put a lot of salt in it and there is a certain kind that is heathy for you.
Most people would associate it as the word sake (Japanese  for any type of alcoholic beverage), but in Japan, they call it  nihon-shu to make it distinct that it's Japanese.

Yes, rice wine does expire. Rice wine also called sake has a shelf  life of about 6 months. After 6 months sediment will begin to form  at the bottom of the bottle.
No the vinegar will preserve itself. It will loose flavor over time.
Yes its good for you, it has rice, and vinegar
While they both are vinegar, they have very different flavors and it might have a big affect on the overall taste of the finished dish. White vinegar would be the best substitute. Even plain white wine vinegar would be closer.
Although most people would associate "sake" as a "rice  wine", but in actuality it's brewed more like a beer.
No, wine and vinegar are quite different (whether derived from rice, grapes, or whatever). Wine contains alcohol, and vinegar contains acetic acid.
When cooking, rice wine and anisado can be substituted in most  recipes. Rice wine usually has a higher alcoholic content than  grape wine.

  Just to add to the never ending confusion in the life of a Celiac. Glutenous rice is gluten free and in turn the vinegar is gluten free. Glutenous rice is called that because it's sticky. So your answer is yes, yes it is gluten free. ----------<3 Theresa

  == ANSWER: ==   Vinegar is the last cycle of a sugar molecules life. It begins as sugar, ferments and becomes alcohol. It then ages to become vinegar. In all three cycles, there is no expiration date. So, unless it becomes contaminated, it should have an unlimited shelf life.

Wine Substitute . 1/2 cup fruit juice can be substituted for 1/2 cup wine in desserts. 1/2 cup chicken broth can be substituted for 1/2 cup wine in savory recipes.
  It can be served cold, hot, or at room temperature, often depending on the season. One recommendation I heard was to put a glass of saki in a bowl of warm water (105 degrees F) to warm it. You can also serve it on the rocks. Many saki bottles will give you ideas on the label.
