Here’s the short answer: alcohol is not regulated by the FDA, so it’s not subject to the same rules as other food and drink (such as nutritional labels). Alcohol is regulated by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) and it would be up to this organization to require alcohol companies to disclose nutritional information.

Wines with less than 7 percent alcohol and beers that don’t involve malted barley are actually governed by FDA rules anyway. So they must have standard nutrition facts and list ingredients—but listing alcohol content is optional. For all other types of alcoholic beverages, calorie counts are optional.

Calorie Counts for Alcoholic Beverages It may seem obvious that, even though they don't have a label, alcoholic beverages contain calories. Alcohol contains 7 calories per gram (fat has 9 calories/gram and carbs and protein deliver 4 calories/gram). The surprising part is how quickly those calories can add up.

The vast majority of beers, liquors, and wines do not have nutrition labels, but though their calories are invisible to the eye, that doesn't mean they aren't there. A pint of your average IPAcontains 250 calories. A glass of red wine holds 125. A shot of whiskey has about 100.

Although most alcoholic beverages may not display their nutrition info, that doesn't mean they're not packing some major macros: A pint of IPA contains about 250 calories, a glass of red wine has about 125 and a shot of liquor has about 100.

Nutritional labelling on foods and beverages is the norm. However, alcohol is an exception. The fact-less labels on your booze display the alcohol percentage, but information on the nutritional facts is missing. That makes it virtually impossible ...

Why do alcoholic beverages lack nutrition facts? Literally every product you put in or on your body has a list of ingredients printed somewhere on the packaging. But when it comes to alcohol there’s just a few vague warnings like “don’t operate heavy machinery”. If these products are intended for human consumption, and regulated by the ...
