Tip of the Day

Reading an Alcohol Label

Reading an Alcohol LevelLabel reading is an important skill, not just in the food aisles, but also in the liquor section. Knowing how to read the liquor content of wine, beer or distilled spirits is important to ensure you are enjoying alcoholic beverages in moderation.

The term "proof" on a bottle indicates the amount of alcohol. The proof is twice the alcohol content. For example, if a label states "80 proof," this means that the liquor contains 40 percent alcohol. Not all beverages are required to list the alcohol content, so check the bottler's website if you are unsure.

To learn more about drinking alcoholic beverages in moderation, consult a registered dietitian nutritionist in your area, and learn more about healthy eating from our Eat Right Nutrition Tips.
