With so many hard seltzers’s on the market it can be hard to decide which one is the best for you and which one fits best into your diet. Before we dive in deep, take a peek below at my handy dandy chart that shows you all the basics you would look for before purchasing any hard seltzer.
Picking The Healthiest Seltzer
Picking the healthiest seltzer is going to be situational to you and your dietary restrictions.
As you can see from the above graph, White Claw and Truly are the only ones that contain sugar, so if you are a no sugar type of person than those obviously won’t be the best for you.
Each of them doesn’t have more than 2 carbs, so everyone is pretty safe there. However, if you are the carb police than aim for Smirnoff with 1g or Henry’s Sparkling that has 1.6 g.
If you are sensitive to drinks then you should stick with the White Claw 70 or Henry’s Sparkling since they are the to lowest. White Claw 70 coming in at 3.7% and Henry’s Sparkling is 4.2%.
All are fairly great options considering other beer or sugary cocktail alternatives. White Claw and Truly are going to come in at the most calories with 100 each, and White Claw 70 is going to be the least.
