Unfortunately, many times we question ourselves on calories in a glass of wine, and sometimes thinking about it makes us consider it we should take another one or not..
First of all, good news is that wine is healthy and drinking a glass per day supports the cardio-circulatory system… so, do not feel soooo guilty! Furthermore, the calorie intake of a glass of wine is significantly lower than that of a spirit drink, but also compared to carbonated drinks or tea and industrial juices.
Nevertheless, calories are still there and, on average, a gram of alcohol contains 7 calories (more than a gram of pasta).
Therefore, considering a standard glass of wine of 150ml, alcohol goes from 11% to 14%. Talking about a glass of wine, have you ever questioned yourself on how much wine should you put in it? Here is the answer!
Let’s check now how many calories in a glass or red wine, white or sparkling!
Ok, time for the truth!
- RED WINE counts, per each glass, from 80 to 120 calories, when it has an alcohol content between 10° and 14°.
- WHITE WINE, likewise red one, counts around 80 – 110 kcal per glass for wines with alcohol content going from 10° to 12°.
- Last, but not least, there is the SPARKLING WINE, unfortunately, the most caloric, as just a glass counts from 120 to 150 calories; nevertheless, there might be a hope! Calories in prosecco (or sparkling in general) depend both on the alcohol content (10° – 12°) but, as well, on the residual sweetness.
Whenever in doubt, do not think about the calories of a glass (especially if Uvamatris) as this is a real pleasure!
