As the low carb diet becomes more popular throughout the world, many beverage companies are beginning to develop new products such as low carb beer or hard seltzers, which have little to no sugar or carbohydrates.
As evident in several areas, alcohol producers have responded to the low carb trend in dramatic fashion. For example, the emergence of the low carb beer in particular is generally caused by actions that the beer industry has taken.
However, while many of such beers have a reduced carbohydrate count, this does not necessarily mean that there has been any sacrifices in flavor. Followers of Atkins or Keto diets, and other low carb regimens would likely be happy to see this trend continue to emerge due to years of having to steer clear of beer.
Recently in Japan, Kirin Brewery Co. was the first Japanese company to produce a zero carb beer, and given the positive response thus far, it is pretty clear that low carb or zero carb beer is here to stay.
Shoppers in Japan can find Kirin’s new beer by following the link embedded in the photo below. Cheers!
