Additionally, wood vinegar was formed when bio-oils were produced at a moderate temperature with a reasonably high heating rate.

What Are The Many Sources from Which Wood Vinegar Is Extracted?
As a result of wood vinegar therapeutic qualities, it has been utilized for millennia throughout Asia. Mineral and vitamin-rich wood vinegar has been demonstrated to be useful in treating a variety of medical ailments.

The sap of some trees and the bark of some trees are the two primary sources of wood vinegar. Sugars found in the sap of these plants are fermented by bacteria into acetic acid during the fermentation process. Wood vinegar is created by distilling this acetic acid.

High quantities of acetic acid are also seen in the bark of some trees. Steam distillation is a technique used to separate the acetic acid from the bark. Pyroligneous acid, often known as wood vinegar, is the result.
