Low Alcohol Wines to Battle Problem Drinking

Low Alcohol Wines to Battle Problem Drinking

It has been found that indulgence of wine drinking has been on rise among middle class professionals. This is the reason that the UK Government has been thinking to come up with ways to curb problematic drinking.

One of the ways that the UK Govt has come up is to have low alcohol wines. A campaign has already been going on across Europe to reduce the strength of product from 8.5% to 4.5% abv. By lowering the strength, the product can be classed as wine.

Not only this, it has also been found the government has also been asking supermarkets to have more alcohol products like wine and beers that contain less alcohol.

Health Minister Earl Howe said, "The government has consistently made the case for change to the EU wine rules to permit reduced and de-alcoholised products to be called wines".

He affirmed that having low alcohol products will prove beneficial for consumers in long-term. It is important to come up with workable solutions as already patients getting admitted in hospitals for liver disease and cancers with regard to alcohol are one rise.

France, Italy and Portugal and other nations are not agreeing to redefine the legal term of wine. But Earl said he would make efforts to bring things at negotiable table.
