The Low Carb Beer Myth – Why It Won’t Help Your Waistline – Beer Cartel

Low carb beer has been an extremely lucrative product line for mainstream beer over the last few years. Beers such as Hahn Superdry and Pure Blonde have managed to pick up sales in what is a declining market, all based on a marketing concept that low carb beer is a “healthier” option.But we’ve got news for you:Low carb beers are a lie. They are a complete myth. It is all part of marketing spin to sell beer.Unfortunately there is very little difference between the carbohydrate content in a standard beer and that of a low carbohydrate beer.Consider this:The number of carbs in a regular beer is around 9 grams. In a low carb beer it is around 2 grams. In total a low carb beer is around a quarter the carbs of regular beer.Sounds great.BUT. That 7 gram saving is around the same amount of carbs as half a slice of bread.

BUT. That 7 gram saving is around the same amount of carbs as half a slice of bread.
