The Info You’re After
WHAT IS ALCOHOL FREE
Alcohol Free contains zero (0.00%) to 0.05% alcohol by volume (ABV). Alcohol free beverages are produced without any form of fermentation or brewing. Most preservatives are added prior to bottling
to ensure fermentation doesn't occur in storage.
WHAT IS NON-ALCOHOLIC
Non-Alcoholic means the beverage contains 0.5% or less ABV. Non alcoholic beverages generally undergo some form of fermentation process Anything that can ferment produces alcohol as it ripens. Some orange and tomato juices are above the 0.5% alcohol volume. WOW!! an over ripe banana can contain 1% alcohol and kombucha can contain up to 0.5% alcohol.
WHAT IS DE-ALCOHOLIZATION
De-Alcoholized beverages are fermented, the same as in wine making, but most of the alcohol has been removed prior to being bottled. De-Alcoholized beverages generally have the same depth and complexity of taste that brewed drinks have, but with very low alcohol content (most have 0.5%). All of the de-alcoholised beverages we stock have 0.5% or less.
