But what was interesting were the numbers. Bock beers had FRAP reading at 4663 umol/L. This is important stay with me... Wine drinkers always boast that their stuff has more antioxidants than beer. This is true; wine has a reading of 12137 umol/L. If you really want a healthy drink, coffee had 22667 umol/L; orange juice had 5147 umol/L. What is the average serving size of wine? About a cup, for a FRAP of approx 3000 umol. The average (CAMRA) serving of beer is one English pint for a FRAP reading of 2650. A serving of wine doesn't have that much more antioxidants than beer.
So when some cork dork jabbers on about how his drink is better for you: just sip quietly and deeply. Just don't tell them, "it ain't healthy for you if you keep spitting it out."
