Sugar.

Aw, honey, honey.

The small print says the article is best read while sampling each of the brands mentioned.

Well considering beer, wine, and liquor are made from sugar, is it suprising that the finished product also contains sugar?

No sugar tonight in my Merlot,
No sugar tonight in my whisky,
No sugar tonight in my liver,
No sugar to flow from my pee!

This month, the WHO said a person's daily intake of added sugar should be halved to six teaspoons to help avoid growing health problems including obesity and tooth decay.

Doesn't the average soda have something like 8 teaspoons of sugar in it? Or does that not count as "added sugar" since it's already in the product?

Could be wrong on this one. But I was under the impression that alcohol just turned to sugar once it was in you anyways.

Still surprised this is news to people.

A power nap after day drinking and I'll be jacked and wired as shiat
 
2014-03-29 05:05:47 PM
Icewine?

That shiat is like cough syrup!

Who would have guessed that the sweeter booze tastes, the more sugar it has in it?

Yeah, booze is metabolically basically sugar.

Which actually makes it a very good appetite suppressant actually.  In my heavy drinking days I ate very little, I just wasn't hungry.  Mind you, while booze provides liquid calories, it has less nutritional value than Wonder Bread.

Double whammy. On top of the sugar and carbs you're intaking, your liver shuts down fat processing to deal with the "poison", ensuring everything you've eaten/drank is stored as fat.

My sister can't comprehend that 80 proof alcohol has 100 calories per shot.    She is a school teacher, but is befuddled by calories.    "  I just had a salad today,  then I sat in this bar and hung out with friends and had 3 rum and diets. "    (and this is a private club where they overpour).

Total mystery Susan.... total mystery.

Maybe these guys thought ALL the sugar turned into alcohol.

/I dunno, I'm just trying to understand their reasoning
//unless the manufacturers were adding sugar into the final product, which doesn't make a lot of sense in my head
///eh, I'm thinking too hard about this

Wait, apple juice has sugar?  Why didn't they tell us?

There are obviously bigger issues with the article. But there is a difference between natural sugars and the shiat processed white stuff.

Absolutely right.  On the one hand you have glucose and fructose in about a 50/50 mixture while on the other hand you have sucrose which is half glucose and half fructose.

Haven't tried the flavored ones.  But the straight one is now my go-to Vodak.   What's the sugar content.

It's been a long time since I took that nutrition course, but IIRC alcohol has over twice the caloric value of sugar. Booze is a double edged sword.
 
2014-03-29 05:51:31 PM
Yet they completely skipped over those ridiculous flavored vodaks that are available everywhere.  Gotta wonder just how many calories are in some of those cocktails these days.

rum and DIET coke? I'd smack her on pure principle alone.

it's a lazy enough drink as it is, but just to make it taste like shiat on top of all that by using a diet soda as a mixer..

hell.. when I want a cubralibririe I use either Boylans cane cola or pepsi throwback.

if I can't find proper mezican coke or pepsi on glass that is.

yep... the body turns the booze to sugar, and the booze itself slows your metabalism down...

then you get hungry and eat stuff... like nachos and junk...

but is sugar really taste or more of a gut sensatio like umami? More worried about the reaction of the alcohol with the chemical sweetener. Sugar is a slimy syrup.

Cider, known for being sweet, has sugar in it? Next thing they'll tell us is wine has grapes in it!

Ain't that the truth?  After a few bottles of Boone's Farm, your mom has a hunger for nachos and junk like you wouldn't believe.  I just have to make sure she eats the nachos after the junk.  Jalapeno drool can be irritating.

Proteins and sugar has 4.5 calories per gram.  Alcohol has 7.5 calories per gram.  Fat has 9 calories per gram.

What did people think alcohol was made of?
 
2014-03-29 07:25:34 PM
This is why I only drink 80+ proof. Why bother with that other shiat when all you want is the effects of the ethanol.

Alcohol does seriously affect your metabolism though, outside of the normal sugar problems.

Mine still seems to be working, but I think it's the 150 miles of cycling I do a week more than anything.

Wow, really? Hard cider has a lot of sugar in it? You don't say!

One of my biggest gripes about commercial cider is how cloyingly sweet it is. I have had (and made) some pretty good stuff brewed with champagne yeast. Very dry and pleasant to sip.

Ah, thanks. I was thinking it was the other way around with fat and alcohol.

This is why I can never seem to drink as much eggnog as everyone else.
