Borș[1] is a fermented wheat bran used in Romanian cuisine to make traditional sour soup called ciorbă.

The word Borș is derived from Russian language borscht. To refer to the traditional borscht made from beetroot, Romanians generally say borș rusesc (Russian borscht) or borș de sfeclă (beetroot borscht). In Moldova the word borș means soup.[2]
