The Whole Foods folks are gonna love this.
In an effort to be more transparent with what actually goes into making a Bud Light, Anheuser-Busch has made Bud Light the first ever beer in the United States to provide an ingredient list on the label. In addition to listing the ingredients, the packaging will also include: serving size, calories, total fat, saturated fat, trans fat, carbohydrates, sugars and protein.
“While ingredient labels are not required, consumers deserve to know more about their beer. We brew Bud Light with the finest ingredients and we’re happy to proudly display them on our packaging,” said Andy Goeler, VP of Marketing, Bud Light. “When people walk through a store, they are used to seeing ingredient labels on products in every aisle, except for the beer, wine and spirits aisle. As the lead brand in the category, we believe increasing on-pack transparency will benefit the entire beer category and provide our consumers with the information they expect to see.”
Water, barley, rice hops… sounds like like some good clean drinking to me. Anytime you put 15 of anything in your body in one sitting, you should probably know what’s in it. At at 6.6 carbs per can, a cold Bud Light is pretty much healthier than a banana, broccoli, an apple… all that shit that people say is healthy.
Can’t argue with science. Kudos Bud Light.
