Mizkan Americas added two seasoned rice vinegars to its Nakano product line.

Global condiment manufacturer Mizkan Americas Inc., Mount Prospect, Ill., adds two seasoned rice vinegars—mango and citrus--to its Nakano product line. These sweet rice vinegar varieties fill a category gap in sweet flavors available to consumers. The other flavors in the Nakano line are: Balsamic, Basil & Oregano, Red Pepper and Roasted Garlic. All of the vinegars are low calorie and free of fat and gluten. At 20 calories a splash, the seasoned rice vinegars are ideal for consumers to use in place of oils, dressings and mayo, without compromising on flavor.

The 12-oz. bottles have a suggested retail price of $2.99 to $3.19.
