A bottle of standard Budweiser beer has 20 milligrammes of sodium, while a bottle of light Budweiser beer includes only 10 mg. Miller Genuine Draft and Miller’s High Life both have 7 mg of salt per bottle. In one bottle of Coors, there are 12 mg of sodium and 13 milligrammes of sodium. A single bottle of Heineken has 8 mg of salt.
A 12-ounce bottle of beer has 14 milligrammes of salt in it, as does a can of beer. The beverage has 38 mg of sodium in a 32-ounce pitcher. The amount of sodium in each brand and flavour varies. In general, light beer has the same amount of sodium as regular beer per serving. The salt level of beer is lowered to an average of 4 milligrammes when servings are cut to 3.5 ounces, or 100 grammes. Budweiser has 3 mg of caffeine per 3.5 ounces, or about a quarter of a bottle.
In a study conducted in 1954 by medical professionals and nutritionists, it was shown that 25 samples of beer from various brewers contained an average of 6.95 milligrammes of salt per 3.38 ounces of beer, compared to 10 milligrammes of sodium in normal drinking water. This amounted to 25 milligrammes of sodium per 12 ounces of beer. Doctors thought beer should be discussed more as a way to control salt intake in the diet at the time the study was conducted.
