Put your hands in the air for low carb and high flavour beer!
Michelob Ultra is making dreams come true for keto dieters with a new low-carb, *fruity* beer. They announced that this month, they are launching the first-ever flavoured version of its beloved keto-friendly, low-calorie light beer, called Michelob Ultra Infusions. The first beer to be launched will be Lime & Prickly Pear Cactus, rumoured to be followed by Pomegranate & Agave shortly after.
Sticking to its as-healthy-as-beer-can-get roots, Michelob Ultra Infusions have just 95 calories per bottle. Unlike the original line, though, the Infusions have slightly more carbs—around 5 grams each, versus the usual 2.6 grams, according to the brand. But the best part worth pointing out is that the new beers feature real exotic fruits and no artificial colours or flavours, so those extra carbs are at least ones that you can feel good about.
In case you are unaware, the keto diet requires consuming fewer than 50 net carbs per day (and ideally no more than 20) in order to encourage the body to burn fat for energy, in a state called ketosis (hence the name). That generally means that beer is off-limits. Fruit doesn’t really stand much of a chance either, because of its high sugar content. So this launch is truly giving keto dieters the best of both worlds.
Beers, sugar, carbs are usually the first things we are advised to avoid if we are told to follow a strict diet plan. If you have been sipping the breezer to compensate for your love for beer, then good news awaits you. You needn’t have to think about having a complicated relationship with beer, or exclude it from your list, even if you are planning to lose weight, because there’s a new kind of fruity beer all ready to make your relationship with alcohol less complicated.
