If you’ve been downing low-carb beers in hopes it’s a healthier choice – think again.
The Cancer Council of Victoria has found low-carb beers andregular beers have similar levels of carbohydrates.
A typical lager or ale has around 1.4 grams of carbohydrates per 100ml.
Meanwhile a “low carb” Pure Blonde has 0.5 grams per 100lm and a “lower carb” Carlton Dry has 1.9 grams.
