What is "rice vinegar"? How different from reg. white vinegar? Thank you

Rice vinegar is made from fermented rice and has a slightly milder and sweeter taste than white vinegar. You can find it at most grocery stores, but we suggest you call before you go! You could also substitute with white vinegar, if that's what you have on hand. :) Enjoy!
