Drinks without hangover ?

 TAGS:

Recently, a group of Australian scientists has discovered the formula for making a beer that does not give a hangover. How did they do? This group belongs to the Griffith Health Institute in Queensland, which used mineral electrolytes for his invention.

The new mineral drink contains electrolytes, the same as those used in sports drinks, and they act to reduce dehydration of the body to maintain the fluid in perfect balance, thus preventing the famous hangover the next day.

Another variant of this beer is that it has helped to reduce the alcohol content to improve hydration. Associate Professor at the Centre for Health Institute Griffith Innovation health, said:

  • "Basically, we handle the electrolyte levels of two commercial beers, regular strong and light beer, and gave them to research subjects who had lost a lot of sweat during exercise. Then, we used a series of measures to monitor the recovery of fluids of different participants in each beer. Of the four subjects who consumed beer, light beer was the best kept by the body, meaning that it was more effective to rehydrate the subjects. The "best" light beer was actually a third more effective to hydrate a person than a regular beer. "

Many drinks containing electrolytes are recommended to be consumed after the sports training, but Desbrow does not recommend drinking after exercise: "Alcohol in a dehydrated body can have all kinds of consequences, including a reduction of risk awareness . "

And in this type of drinks do not cause hangovers there is also a Russian vodka being sold successfully in the UK, called “Beluga Noble Russian Vodka” is developed with Siberian “craft water" made thanks to a process of maturity of 30 days, which prevents consumers from feeling the symptoms of a hangover the next day.

Manufacturers go further to say that Beluga will not cause any type of hangover.

In an edition designed to be eaten with caviar, Beluga Noble Russian Vodka gold has a maturation of 90 days. Beluga represents 87% of the Russian market and seems very interested to export to the rest of Europe.

How to quickly cool your beer

 -

At certain times of year, like summer, some drinks heat up quickly, losing its freshness and flavor. This is the case of beer, which warm or hot, it doesn’t taste the same and isn’t as good on the palate. The beer should be drunk chilly to take away the heat. To cool it quickly, we have some options.

We can put the beer in a large bowl filled with water and ice. It is perfect when we are away from home, as we have on hand a large bowl and ice.

If we want the beer to be fresh instantly, then we can use the same bowl, water, ice and salt. Strangely, with salt, ice and cold water cools beers more quickly. At the same time, we can put the bowl in the freezer. It is recommended to put the beer bottles in a bag so you do not have some salt taste when you drink it.

If you come home with warm beer, you can always put it in the freezer. Now freezers are at high temperatures and in a few minutes the beer Is ready. Not as effective as the previous case, but while we wait we can always prepare something to eat.

If you are in the mountains and close to a river, you can use the following trick. We can always leave our beer cans or bottles into the river, anchored with stones or some support to prevent escape. The river water is usually colder, so we'll have our fresh beers as we need.
We can also make use of the method of paper or newspaper, it is very simple to perform. Just break a paper or newspaper strips, wash it or soak it in water for a moment and paste or wrap directly on the bottle or can of beer.

What are your favorite beers? We recommend:

Nebbiolo

It is one of the most prominent Italian grapes, in many parts of the world the harvest of this grape is attempted but none has found the secret of Piedmont, most likely by the terroir, as indicated by Berry Green. Alba and Nebbiolo Langhe Nebbiolo represent excellent choices for this grape.

Nerello Mascalese

This grape from Sicily is made at the foot of the highest active volcano in Europe and turns out to be as versatile as Pinot Noir. It is produced in limited quantities and in Sicily, this makes it become known in other parts of the world.

Nero D' Avola

One of the grapes that have become popular in Italy specifically in Sicily is the Nero D' Avola. It is dark and the time that is used to produce wines of entry, Pierpaolo Messina ( Producer ) ensures that this grape can age up to 10 years and this would give greater position of fine wine, but people quickly trade it, ignoring its potential.

Aglianico

This Italian grape grown in volcanic soils of Basilicata concentrate good potential to produce wines. Their plantations continue to grow and it is said that it is robust and tannic, but lacking the smooth fruity flavor. For now it is sold in small quantities and is considered by many astringent and heavy.

Fiano, Falanghina and Greco Bianco

These grapes for white wines stand out for their potential. Fiano is accessible and is the most popular Falanghina and Greco have some similarities based on their minerality and are expected to reach the level of a Sauvignon Blanc in the future.

Vermentino

Another white variety is ideal to successfully insert in the UK markets. It is less oily and citric than other Tuscan varieties. The harvested soil is not changed in the town it’s made and this gives uniformity. There are different shades of Vermentino.

Glera

Another primary grape in Italy is Glera, it is used to make the UK Prosecco. In  Uk Prosecco sold more than Champagne in 2012.

Trebbiano

Trebbiano positive features are its tropical fruity flavor, creaminess and minerality. It is the favorite of all winemakers but is an excellent alternative crop for premium wines. He won first place in the competition of the best wines of Italy Sommelier Luca Gardini.

Pinot Grigio

The wine made from this grape has been undervalued because of mass production, but it is looking to rebuild its image on the basis of quality that characterizes him. Dividends from the producers of this grape in Italy are greatly favored by UK demand but their status does not rise even being the more potential white variety for fine Italian wines.
