BEER, SUGAR CONTENT

QUESTION:

Hello Chef James,

Is there a beer out there with no sugar or very little? And what does ABV mean?

Thank you, Cynthia

 

ANSWER:

Hello Cynthia,

1) ABV means alcohol by volume (as opposed to alcohol by weight).

2) You could not have beer (or wine) without sugar in some form. Basically, the brewing process first converts starch from grains into sugar and then yeast converts the sugar into alcohol (fermentation).
The range of carbohydrates in regular beer is 12-16 grams. There are 4 sugars that are part of the carbohydrate makeup.
These are:
   1- Maltose
   2- Maltotriose
   3- Maltotetrase
   4- Glucose

The total of these sugars range from 0.15 to 0.20 grams per 12 ounces of beer.
