Drink Beer its good fro you !

Beer comes with health benefits, Heineken’s chief commercial officer told CNBC, offering drinkers a new reason to indulge.

A half pint of Heineken contains around 85 calories

“There is everything healthy about beer,” said Alexis Nasard, chief commercial officer for the Dutch brewing giant.


Nasard argued that beer has fewer calories than milk and contains no additives.

“Beer has much less calories than many things you can think about… Beer has fewer calories than a glass of milk,” he said.

“The other thing is beer is one of the few drinks that is purely natural; it is water, hops, barley and yeast, which is quite healthy.”

Nasard’s comments were reminiscent of Guinness’s famed advertising slogan, “Beer is good for you,” dating from the 1920s. Pregnant women and nursing mothers were encouraged to drink Guinness for its reputedly high iron content.

According to the U.K.’s Beer Education Trust, a half-pint (284 milliliters) of 3.8 percent bitter (pale ale) contains 85 calories, while the same-sized glass of orange juice has 128 calories.

Meanwhile, a medium-sized glass (175 milliliters) of white wine contains 131 calories and red wine has 119 calories.

“Beer is around 95 percent water, contains very few free sugars to convert into fat, which gives it a low glycaemic load, and has a relatively low level of alcohol (ethanol) per volume. This all means that it is less fattening than spirits or wine,” said Jack Edmonds, a Harley Street General Practitioner in London, in a report by the Beer Education Trust.

“It is not beer that makes you fat but the lifestyle and eating habits which may go along with beer drinking.”






Edmonds added: “However this doesn’t mean we can all rush out and drink huge amounts of beer… All the benefits of beer — health, social and psychological — are only enjoyed when beer is drunk in moderation and preferably with a low alcohol content.”

In his interview with CNBC, Nasard said that Heineken [HEIA-NL 48.61 -0.095 (-0.19%) ] , the world’s third largest brewer, aims to surprise consumers with its branding and advertising campaigns.

“You want to keep it cool, but you also want to keep it surprising. What we want is to come with surprising messages, which get people saying ‘What are they doing?’” he said.

“We were one of the first brewers that tried to move away from the ‘big fat beer’ jokes, creating advertising that is unisex, complex and has an artistic dimension.”

Nasard highlighted Heineken’s product placement in the latest James Bond film, Skyfall, as an example of the brand’s “surprise” policy. In his third appearance as Bond, Daniel Craig is shown sipping a Heineken beer rather than his trademark vodka martini.

Total Time: 1 hr 30 min
Prep Time: 45 min
Ingredients
U.S. Metric Conversion chart
  • 12 very small Red Delicious apples (from bagged apples)
  • 12 (8-in. long) clean twigs, thin wooden dowels or candy sticks
  • 2 cup(s) sugar
  • 1 cup(s) each light corn syrup and hot water
  • 1/2 cup(s) red cinnamon candies (like Red Hots)
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) liquid red food color

Directions
  1. Line a large baking sheet with nonstick foil or parchment paper.
  2. Wash and thoroughly dry apples; remove stems. Insert twigs firmly into stem ends.
  3. Combine sugar, corn syrup and water in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat; stir until sugar dissolves. Attach a candy thermometer to side of pan. Continue to cook, without stirring, until mixture reaches 250°F (wipe down sides of pan with a wet pastry brush occasionally to prevent crystallization).
  4. When mixture reaches 250°F, add cinnamon candies and stir just to blend. Continue to cook until 300°F, about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove syrup from heat and swirl in food color, tilting saucepan, until blended. Let mixture settle for a minute until bubbles slow down.
  5. Holding an apple by the twig and tilting pan, dip and swirl apple until coated. Lift apple and gently twirl over saucepan, letting excess drip back into pan. Place on prepared baking sheet, twig up. Repeat with remaining apples.
  6. Allow apples to stand at room temperature until candy coating hardens, about 1 hour. Candy apples can be made up to 1 day ahead and stored at room temperature.
