    Do You Know Hidden Facts In A Glass Of Alcohol?

    People often ask a question about alcohol- “to be or not to be?” I feel that while taking diet history the most neglected part is asking about person’s drinking habits.  It matters a lot for understanding a person’s overall lifestyle, weight gain tendency etc. Type of alcohol consumed by a human being for its intoxicating and mind-altering effects is ethyl alcohol or ethanol. It is a clear liquid with harsh burning taste and having high volatility.

    Wines are made from grapes but are made from various other juicy fruits, such as peaches, plums or apricots. The most common wines are produced from grapes. Nature of the soil determines the quality and taste of the grapes which in turn affects the taste and quality of wines. Ripe grapes are crushed and fermented in large vats to produce wine.

    Beer is made by the process of fermenting various cereals such as corn, rye, wheat or barley etc. The process of fermentation produces alcohol and carbon dioxide. When the desired limit of alcohol content is achieved, the process of fermentation is stopped. The alcohol so produced is called beer. It contains 4 to 8 percent of alcohol.
