Alcohol kilojoules

Dear Doc

Do you have an article or summary of the most used alcohol and the kJ it contains per serving?

I''m looking for something I can print out for reference, not frequently going to the " tools"  section and pick the item one by one...

Many thanks

No I don't have a list of the energy contents of the various popular alcoholic drinks. The only guideline I can give you, is that 1 gram of alcohol contains 29 kJ or 7 kcal. Check the alcohol content of the drinks in question (e.g. 5% = 5 g per 100 ml) and then calculate how many g of alocohol are in the quantity you drink (say 300 ml, thus 3 x 5 = 15 x 27 = 435 kJ). According to the SA Food Tables average kJ values for alcoholic beverages are: Beer (6% alcohol v/v) 172 kJ per 100 ml; Cider (2.7% w/w) 176 kJ per 100 ml; Liqueurs (22% w/w) 1409 kJ/100 ml; Liqueurs with cream (22% w/w) 1367 kJ/100 ml; Sherry dry(13% w/w) 447 kJ/100 ml and Sherry sweet or port 573 kJ/100 ml; Spirits (brandy whiskey, gin, cane, vodka, rum) (36% w/w) 1044 kJ per 100 ml; Wine (9.4% w/w) red, white, rose, dry, semi-sweet, sparkling 296 kJ/100 ml.
Hope this helps
