Just because you are on a diet doesn't mean you have to miss out on the effervescence of brut champagne or prosecco. In fact, with the right choices, you can enjoy a glass or two every day without the risk of compromising your health goals. It all comes down to having the knowledge to make informed choices that align with your diet plan — and that is where SYLTBAR Premium Brut Prosecco comes into the picture.
Understanding the Basics of SYLTBAR Brut Prosecco vs. Other Proseccos
Before delving into the world of low-calorie prosecco options, it's essential to understand the basics. Prosecco is a sparkling wine from Italy, known for its light, crisp and fruity flavors — not its sweetness. Remember, there is a very distinct difference between a wine being “sweet” and a wine being “fruity.” Prosecco is typically a more fruity sparkling wine that is lower in calories than many other alcoholic beverages.
However, in many cases, there are brut Proseccos that are produced by large manufacturers — and that means they are produced in bulk meant to create large quantities for distribution. When mass production is the goal, the wine needs to be shelf-stable for long periods of time. This means extra additives and sulfites are put into the wine to act as a preservative. Additionally, mass production also means “mass money.” Most of the time, the wine manufacturers will do whatever they can to decrease their costs and save money. This results in cutting down on the necessary fermentation time needed for a brut champagne or prosecco to be at its best. Instead, sugars and sweeteners are added to the juice in order to enhance its flavor and make it taste good, rather than allowing the grapes to shine on their own.
SYLTBAR, on the other hand, does not cut corners and will never add anything to the juice. Our producers use a four-month double fermentation process to allow the grapes to fully develop their flavors and aromas, so no extra sugar is ever needed. Additionally, the wine is never produced in bulk, as this helps with control of quality and consistency. There are no added sulfites or chemicals needed to extend shelf life. The wine stays pure.
Prosecco with Low Residual Sugar
All that’s left in SYLTBAR wine after its fermentation process is complete are naturally occurring sulfites — no more than 25ppm, whereas the average amount in commercial wines is about 150ppm — and the grapes’ residual sugar.
Residual sugar is a key factor influencing the calorie count in prosecco. A bottle labeled as brut prosecco or brut champagne ensures a drier taste with minimal residual sugar. This not only enhances the crispness of the prosecco but also aligns with your dietary preferences.
The amount of residual sugar in SYLTBAR Premium Prosecco is less than 1 gram per 6 ounce serving, which also results in a much lower calorie content compared to any other wines — only 49 calories per 6 ounce serving!
The Diabetes Research Institute of the University of Miami has tested SYLTBAR Premium Prosecco and Sparkling Rosé against other well-known brands. Professor Dr. Camillo Ricordi, former Director of the Institute, compared the glucose levels of all the Sparkling Wines to find out how much sugar is contained in the wine. The results are shared in this letter.
So, when you are looking for a sparkling wine that is low in sugar and calories to meet your diet goals, SYLTBAR is the obvious choice.
Healthy Options to Pair with Brut Prosecco
To elevate your prosecco experience without compromising your diet goals, making healthy choices is key. Stick to options like fresh fruits and vegetables, light cheeses, and whole grains make excellent companions, enhancing the overall enjoyment while keeping your diet on track.
Here are ten ideas for your next food and Prosecco pairing:
- Fresh Berries: Berries like strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries not only add a burst of flavor but also bring antioxidants to the table, creating a delicious and health-conscious pairing.
- Greek Yogurt Parfait: Combine Greek yogurt with a drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of granola for a creamy and crunchy delight. This parfait adds protein and probiotics to your prosecco celebration.
- Mixed Nuts: A handful of mixed nuts, such as almonds, walnuts, and pistachios, provides healthy fats and protein, creating a satisfying and nutritious accompaniment to your bubbly.
- Caprese Skewers: Cherry tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil on skewers offer a light and flavorful option. This classic combination adds a Mediterranean touch while keeping your snack light and refreshing.
- Vegetable Crudité: Crisp, colorful veggies like cucumber slices, cherry tomatoes, and bell pepper strips paired with a light hummus or guacamole dip make for a crunchy and satisfying snack.
- Smoked Salmon Canapés: This elegant appetizer of smoked salmon on whole-grain crackers or cucumber rounds is great for a dinner party. This savory option introduces omega-3 fatty acids and protein to the mix.
- Quinoa Salad: A refreshing quinoa salad with cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and a citrus vinaigrette is not only tasty but also packed with protein and essential nutrients.
- Avocado Toast Bites: Whole-grain toast topped with mashed avocado and a sprinkle of sea salt makes for a trendy and nutritious choice. Avocado provides healthy fats, fiber, and a creamy texture.
- Edamame: Steamed edamame sprinkled with a touch of sea salt is a protein-rich and satisfying option. These green soybeans are not only delicious but also offer a nutrient boost.
- Dark Chocolate Dipped Fruit: Indulge your sweet tooth with dark chocolate-dipped fruits like strawberries or banana slices — or simply enjoy a dark chocolate bar on its own. Dark chocolate is full of antioxidants, and when consumed in moderation, it is the best choice for dessert.
