Red Wine, like
all other alcoholic beverages, does not include a nutrition label.
This is because alcoholic beverages are regulated by the
Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), rather than the FDA. The TTB does not require nutrition labeling.
So how does one figure out the nutrition in a drink such as Red Wine?
Do you know the nutrition in Red Wine?
A simple internet search of course!
a 5-6 oz (one serving size) glass of red wine will have about 150 calories, 5 grams of carbohydrates (roughly 2% RDA), 6% RDA Potassium, 5% Iron, and about 1% Calcium! Neat!
It is also helpful to know that the basic ingredients in red wine are grapes, sugar, and yeast. The potassium in wine may
come from the soil where the grapes are harvested from.

Potato chips are bad for us right?
THERE ARE NO BAD FOODS!!!!!
When we learn about nutrition, we learn that
we control our health by deciding what we eat. Now, let’s talk potato chips.
We’ve talked a lot about
potatoes here on the Positive Eats blog. But it about time we visit our friend, the Potato Chip.
What’s in a chip? Nothing much actually! A potato chip is really just a few ingredients– potatoes, oil, and salt. Check out
Lay’s Classic Potato Chips.
You may notice that Lay’s chips literally have the three ingredients listed above.
Potatoes, oil, salt.
Today we are going to focus once again on
the . What is the nutritional secret of a POTATO potato? LOTS OF THINGS. But the main thing is..POTATOES HAVE LOTS OF VITAMIN C.
Vitamin C?? YES. Vitamin C. Oh and also
Vitamin B6. But more on that another day.
10% daily Vitamin C from a single serving of potato chips (about 15 chips). Amazing.
Think about THAT next time you are crunching on some chips! Happy eating!!
