    I don't think the dressing and just vinegar are the same. The dressing tends to have other things added which adds to the Syn value.

    I've been taking it as vinegar, which is free but I have just put a standard balsamic vinegar into the Syn calculator and it comes out at 1/2 a Syn per tbsp.

    I was wondering this as well, but I took 'Vinegar - all varieties' from the book to include balsamic, so I'm glad that's the case!
