I remember reading some threads in the past about cravings for certain kinds of foods and what deficiency in the body they might be signaling. I tried doing some searching, but couldn't find exactly what I was looking for.

Anyways, does anyone know if constantly craving vinegar is a sign of something else going on? Why would someone crave vinegar? The person whom I am speaking of will drink vinegar straight from the bottle because of the cravings. He also craves sour things. Any thoughts?

Does this person have any health issues? That may help point out the proper direction.

Could be the body trying to get more good bacteria in the gut, as cultured/fermented foods tend to be sour.

The person is overweight (5'11" 285#) and eats the standard American diet.

or just really likes vinegar. I have a friend who drinks it like wine. She says some small percentage of people just really like the taste.

something tells me an overgrowth of bad bacteria in the gut is craving more vinegar to feed on.......but just a guess
