How Much Zinc in Beer?
Beer is exceptionally minimal in this essential mineral. Let's review the most popular brands and brews of beer. The milligram content follows the brand or type.
Based on 12 Fluid Ounce Serving
Light Beer, 0.04 mg's
How Much Zinc in Whiskey, Rum, Vodka & Gin?
All contain 0.02 milligrams whether they are 80, 86, 90, 94 or 100 proof per 1.5 fluid ounce jigger.
Zinc Benefits of Particular Drinks & Beverages
A chocolate flavored beverage mix is at the top of our data list in our zinc chart below and the reason that it's at the top is due to the product being infused with added vitamins and minerals. These are commercially produced additives - not from natural sources which the body processes best.
It's interesting to see that even carbonated beverages such as club soda, rootbeer and orange soda contain elements of zinc benefits.
And yes - even beer contains a splash at 0.04 milligrams. If we opt for the Pina colada, 4.5 ounces holds 0.18 milligrams. Wines tend to be in the middle of beer and mixed drinks where zinc values are concerned. A little over three ounces contains about 0.14 milligrams.
Added Unwanted Calories
Be sure to choose wisely when it comes to the liquids that you pair with your meal plate as at times, they can hold more energy values than the meal itself.
Example: One frozen cheese enchilada meal that contains two enchiladas, a side of Mexican rice and a side of beans contains 350 kcals. One sweetened 12-ounce serving of regular rootbeer contains 170 kcals. If we reach for a second serving - we've exceeded the caloric values contained in our enchilada meal.
