When it comes to wine, many people are becoming more and more concerned about the calorie and nutritional content to protect their health, but still be able to enjoy their wine.
Prosecco is often touted as a lower calorie and lower sugar option compared to other wines, especially if you are drinking SYLTBAR, which has been lab-tested by the University of Miami Diabetes Research Institute and shown to be significantly lower in sugar than other well known sparkling wine brands. Being lower in sugar also means it is lower in calories.
Prosecco Vs. Other Wines
The average Prosecco brand typically has around 60-80 calories per 4-ounce serving, which is slightly lower than the average for other types of wine. But wait… 4 ounces? SYLTBAR Premium Prosecco is only 49 calories per 6 ounces! If another Prosecco brand is 80 calories for 4 ounces, that means it’s 120 for 6 ounces. SYLTBAR = 49 calories. Other brands = 120 calories. That is a big difference.
If that hasn't already convinced you that SYLTBAR Premium Prosecco is the top choice for low-calorie Prosecco, let us entice you with a few more facts about Prosecco versus other wines.
Most Prosecco brands tend to have around 1-2 grams of sugar per serving compared to 5-10 grams for other wines. SYLTBAR Prosecco goes even further than that, with less than 1 gram of sugar per 6 ounce serving.
When it comes to white wine, there are many different varieties to consider. But the average calorie count for white wine is about 140 calories per 6-ounce serving. Other sparkling varieties, such as Champagne, typically have about 140 calories per 6 ounces. Moving on to red wine, the number is even higher. Red wine can be as high as 180 calories per 6-ounce serving.
But did you know that SYLTBAR also carries a line of fine wines? And yes, these are also lower in calories than the typical wine varietals we’ve listed here. For example, our Silk Friuli is comparable to a Sauvignon Blanc, and our White Linen Pinot Grigio both have 125 calories per 6 ounces. Additionally, our red wine Cashmere Cabernet Franc, is only 115 calories per 6 ounces. Our Junior Ramato Pinot Grigio has the least calories of all the fine wines, at 98 calories per 6-ounce pour.
Although the standard pour is around 4-5 ounces, we know that it is very rare that when you are relaxing at home you pour this amount. That is why we have decided to use 6 ounces as our personal standard for comparison.
Even though our fine wines are lower in calories than other brands in the industry, they are still a bit higher than our Mr! So, if calories are a main concern for you, Prosecco is the obvious answer!
Our Sparkling Rosé option is also a great choice if you prefer that style of sparkling wine. Mrs SYLTBAR Sparkling Rosé is still very low in calories and sugar, just like Mr. At 63 calories per 6-ounce serving and less than 1 gram of sugar, this is a perfect alternative to other sparkling rosé standard varieties.
