Low-carb beer warning

1:00 pm on 23 December 2008

The Alcohol Liquor Advisory Council is warning that low carbohydrate beers should not be considered a healthy drinking option.

Low-carb beers are growing in popularity, with a major brewer suggesting supply of the product is struggling to keep up with demand this summer.

ALAC says it is important for people to remember that although there are fewer calories in the beer, the alcohol content stays at the same level.
