Low-carb diets have definitely become quite the popular trend. Some people follow this lifestyle for specific health and/or medical reasons, while for others, it’s simply personal preference. For those who do follow a low-carb and Keto lifestyle, one thing is for certain: high carbohydrate beverages like beer and sugary cocktails are a no-no.
Is prosecco good for a Keto lifestyle?
But what about wine? Anything that is higher in sugar is naturally going to be higher in carbs as well, as sugar converts into carbohydrates. So, that means that any wine that has been made with added sugars and sweeteners, as well as other sweeter wines like port and sherry, are not to be included in a low-carb diet. However, dry white and red wines typically only have about 2 net grams of carbs per serving, which when enjoyed in moderation can definitely fit into a low-carb lifestyle.
Carbs in Sparkling Wines
Now let’s talk about carbs in sparkling wines, specifically the carbs in Prosecco. Typically, there is a very low amount of carbs in Prosecco. Typically, Prosecco only has around 1 gram of carbohydrates per standard 5 ounce serving. But guess what? Mr SYLTBAR Premium Prosecco has even less than that. A serving of Mr is only 0.3 grams of sugar/carbohydrates! It’s also only 49 calories by glucose level per serving as well, and there are absolutely no chemicals or additives used during production.
By the way, we base our nutrition calculations on a serving size of 6 ounces instead of 5, so you’re getting even more bang for your buck when you drink SYLTBAR.
Naturally produced wines with low Carbs
You are probably wondering how we manage to make a Prosecco with such a small amount of sugar and carbohydrates. It all goes back to our wine producer’s commitment to sustainability and giving back to Mother Earth. They never use any chemicals, added sugars or sweeteners… The wine is produced 100% naturally and pure, nothing added or removed, the way wine should be enjoyed.
Mr SYLTBAR is made with a long secondary fermentation process that takes up to four months. This time period gives the grapes enough time to fully develop without the need for anything extra. The flavor, with its natural sweetness, is good enough on its own! Other big name brands skip that extra long fermentation process, in order to save time and money, and instead add sugar to the wine to make it palatable enough to drink. Our producers keep health and wellness in mind when producing natural wines, and adding chemicals and sugar is not conducive to a healthy lifestyle!
Low Carb Prosecco Options
Considering the amount of carbs in Prosecco is relatively low across the board, even with other brands besides SYLTBAR, it is one of the more ideal alcoholic beverages to consume while following a low-carb lifestyle. Just be careful with Prosecco-based cocktails, like mimosas and Aperol spritz. The mixers in these drinks are loaded with sugar and carbohydrates!
For the lowest carbs in Prosecco though, you can’t get anything better than Mr! SYLTBAR sparkling wines have even been tested by the Diabetes Research Institute of the University of Miami. Mr and Mrs were both tested against other well known sparkling wine brands to compare the Glucose levels and find out just how much sugar is actually present in the wines. The results showed that other brands were over 1.6 to 4.2 fold higher than SYLTBAR!
Weight Watcher friendly wine
If you follow a low-carbohydrate diet, you will be happy to know that Mr SYLTBAR is Keto-friendly, Weight Watchers-friendly (only 2 Smart Points per 6 ounce glass), and most importantly…it’s still absolutely delicious! We may have your health in mind, but we never ever skimp on flavor. This is why we call SYLTBAR your Happy, Healthy, Daily Juice!
