Your Bud Light will look a little different come February.
America’s favorite beer will soon debut a new comprehensive nutrition label, including the serving size, calories, total fat, saturated fat, trans fat, carbohydrates, sugars and protein. The new packaging also prominently displays Bud Light’s four ingredients—hops, barley, water and rice.
Most drinkers won’t be surprised to see 110 calories per serving, but more health-conscious Americans might take note of the brew’s 6.6 grams of carbs.
Breweries aren’t legally required to include these labels, but brands like Heineken and Coors Light have been printing calories and other nutrition information on packaging for years. The difference in Bud Light’s packaging is the large size of the label and the comprehensive breakdown. Ingredients also are not typically listed.
