US Goverment's New Low Carb RulingWritten by Nerello Glasure
The US government issued their ruling on caloric and carbohydrate verbiage that can be used in labeling and advertising of wine and other spirits. As stated in ruling, "Truthful and specific statements about calorie and carbohydrate content in labeling and advertising of wine, distilled spirits, and malt beverages are authorized".
What This Authorization Means In short, it means that wine producers will have new marketing opportunities to pursue. Many wine manufacturers are beginning to market their low-carbohydrate products as healthy and fitting perfectly into a low carb diet.
As example, Brown-Forman recently jumped on low-carb bandwagon with two new and innovative products: One.6 Chardonnay and One.9 Merlot. They are branding and communicating names One.6 and One.9 to highlight respective carb count of wines. One.9 Merlot has 1.9 carbs and One.6 Chardonnay has 1.6 carbs per five-ounce glass.
What Caused It? A handful of companies had already started making low carbohydrate claims in advertisements and labels. The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau was concerned about possible advertising misrepresentation and implying that consumption of "low-carbohydrate" wines or spirits may play a healthy role in a weight maintenance or weight reduction plan.
