    • Compared to red wine this is a considerable amount of more nutrition

Beer nutrition breakdown1
Beer Nutrition Breakdown

  • Fat-free

  • Carbohydrate make up 1/3 calories in beer mostly from partially broken down starch

  • Protein is present in small amounts (4% of total calories)

  • Alcohol (ethanol) make up 2/3 calories in regular beer

  • Fat-free

  • Carbohydrates less in wine

  • Protein is nearly non-existent in wine

  • Alcohol (ethanol) make up 86% of calories in wine

  • Water – 90-94% present in beer

  • Averages 4.6% alcohol by volume (ABV)

  • Most beers range from 3-6% ABV, but some can get to 10% or higher

Fiber for the imbiber
Fiber for the Imbiber

  • USDA Nutrient Data base lists beer’s fiber content as zero grams

  • Discrepancy of how this is measured

    • Official methods of measuring dietary fiber in foods are not applicable to beverages

Fiber for the imbiber1
Fiber for the Imbiber

  • Study, “Dietary Fiber Complex in Beer,” published in 2009 Journal of the American Society of Brewing Chemists

    • Found lager to contain 2 grams of soluble fiber per liter while a dark beer has 3.5 grams of soluble fiber

    • 12 oz serving size, equates to 0.75 grams for a lager and 1.3 grams for a dark beer
