All jokes aside, I’ve often thought of beer as its own food group. My thought is that if I drink 3 or 4 beers on average a week, I should consider adjusting my soylent recipe for the additional calories and other nutrients the beer provides.
I’d think people might want to do something similar for coffee, green tea, black tea, soda, and some other drinks people consume on a regular basis.
The items that are required to be measured on the label of a food product make those levels easy to determine. I’m thinking more about vitamins, minerals, and other beneficial stuff that may be present but not on the label. Has anyone found anything on the nutritional composition of any of the type of drinks that are commonly consumed?
