The Super Bowl of 2019 asked us many questions. Where did the Rams go? Is Tom Brady indeed the first highly functioning robot in the world? Maroon 5 is still one thing? Why did I eat so much guacamole?
And when you saw the commercials, Bud Light asked an interesting question: Wait, in my beer is corn syrup?
The advertisement that continued the thematic element of Monty. Python – not-hilarious from the years before – showed a large barrel of corn syrup, which was rejected by the brewery Bud Light (?), And went to the castles Miller Lite and Coors Light, where it appears . used.
Miller Lite is crazy. Coors Light is crazy. The corn farmers of America are crazy too. The National Corn Growers Association has tweeted:
"@ BudLight America's maize farmers are disappointed in you, our office is on the road! We'd love to share with you the many benefits of corn! Thanks to @MillerLight and @CoorsLite for your support our industry. "
But should you be crazy about corn syrup in your beer? If you're attracted to a clumsy Bill Bellichik-style interview face before the game and be a gripe, then add the cocoa sugar you've consumed excessively on a Sunday night to your catalan sugar to make the snooze feast of good again make a first half?
Is corn syrup in beer bad for you?
First of all, a refreshment as to what corn syrup actually is: corn syrup is a refined sugar. It differs from high fructose corn syrup, which Miller and Coors do not use to defend macrobreaks, in that corn syrup is 100 percent glucose and contains HFCS glucose and fructose. 19659002] We asked Chris Mohr, RD, one of Men's Health Nutritionist if corn syrup in beer is bad for you. The answer? It does not matter if your beer contains corn syrup, because these refined sugars are eliminated anyway in the fermentation process.
"Sugar is used in the brewing process to deliver the yeast as part of the fermentation, so the sweetener used to brew beer is a controversial issue because the end product does not contain sugar," says Mohr.
In short, it's no big deal if the sweetener comes from corn syrup or milk sugar, or Gisele's tears of joy when there's no residual sugar after fermentation.
"Instead of arguing over the type of sweetener, you brew beer and worry about how much beer you drink," says Mohr.
