Suffolk-based micro-brewery, St Peter’s, has unveiled Without® Elderberry & Raspberry. An alcohol-free beer with the sweet, tangy, and pleasant fruitiness of elderberries, and the lingering taste of raspberries. A full-bodied and well balanced beer with a smooth, subtly sharp bitterness.
The perfect follow up to the best-selling St Peter’s Without® Original and Gold!
Alcohol Free Beers are made just like the alcoholic ones with water, yeast, hops and barley. Some are brewed to a lower ABV and some have the alcohol removed through various techniques. Across Europe beers below 0.5% ABV are classed as ‘alcohol free’. In the UK drinks that are between 0.05% and 0.5% ABV are classed as non-alcoholic.
How is this low sugar and what about the carbs?
As defined by governmental guidelines ow sugar means the drink contains less than 2.5g of sugar per 100mls. Products with a higher sugar content cause a spike in insulin and we react by storing more carbs as fat. You may also notice that although lower in sugar there is some carbs, this is usually more complex forms of sugar such as starches and fibre and the body uses these for energy.
How is this product Vegan Friendly?
The drink is free from any animal products or derivatives. In addition the bottle, label and glue is also free from animal products.
