Want something to drink before dinner? Something that’s LOWER in alcohol than wine? To match his beer? Then look no further than Bundaberg’s low-sugar alcoholic ginger beer.
You can drink Bundaberg low-sugar ginger beer straight from the can, or pour it into a long glass over ice with a slice of lime.
* According to Roy Morgan, nearly 1 in 2 (44 per cent) of Aussies claim they’re concerned about their sugar intake.
Carbonated water, diet ginger beer brewed concentrate (water, ginger, sugar, flavours, food acid 300, 330, sweeteners 951, 950, 955, preservative 211, stabiliser 1412, yeast, phenylalanine), Bundaberg cane spirit.
|300||ascorbic acid or vitamin C. On the full-sugar ginger beer, this is listed as “antioxidant”.|
|330||citric acid, a common food acid used in many fruit and veg products. Apart from its acidity, it’s not harmful.|
|951||aspartame, a calorie-free sweetener. Read here for more on aspartame.|
|950||acesulphame potassium or K, another calorie-free sweetener. Read here for more on acesulphame K.|
|955||sucralose, another calorie-free sweetener|
|211||sodium benzoate. This is commonly used to extend the shelf-life of soft drinks|
|1412||distarch phosphate, a thickener. It doesn’t say whether it’s made from corn starch or maize, but this will be present in tiny quantities|
Compared to the full-sugar can, which supplies 38 grams sugar and 1038 kilojoules (248 Calories), you save on kilojoules without sacrificing flavour.
I’d def buy this again. The low-sugar variant looks and tastes great! While I do advocate drinking water to quench your thirst, for when you’re out, this low-sugar version tastes much better than regular ginger beer, which is loaded with sugar and kilojoules/Calories.
