Wine calories


Introduction

Wine is nothing but than a mixture of water, alcohol and grape flavors. The winemaker begins by crushing the grapes and then adding yeast to set in motion the fermenting process and the yeast converts the sugar and oxygen in the juice into ethyl alcohol. Water contains no calories, fat or carbohydrates and the grape flavor represents a very small percentage of the total wine, the sugars in the grapes are gone (being converted into alcohol) so essentially all of the food values you are consuming come from the alcohol and the alcohol alone. The number of wine calories simply depends on alcohol.

How many calories in wine?
Wine calories can restrain up to 15% alcohol by volume and alcohol has oodles of calories. As a contrast alcohol contains 7 calories per gram and fat has 9 calories per gram. The more alcohol wine would contain the more energy that wine will contain. Therefore to reduce weight it may be best to cut out wines and other alcoholic drinks until you have reached your goal weight. It's also a better idea to use non-alcoholic drinks until the weight is lost.
A regular bottle of wine contains 750 Ml or 25.42 Oz of liquid or approximately five 5 Oz or six 4 Oz servings. Wine generally varies greatly in alcoholic content usually from 10% to 14%. Obviously, the higher the alcohol content the higher the calories.
