Budweiser Beer

ORAC Value:
μ mol TE/100g.

The antioxidant value of Budweiser Beer described in ORAC units is: 150 μ mol TE/100g.


Budweiser is the quintessential American beer, so it's a good representation of the antioxidant value you should expect from a regular beer. With an ORAC of 150, it ranks about 88% higher than Bud Light. Aside from having more antioxidants, are there any other health benefits of Budweiser? Not really. 12 fluid ounces (1 bottle) has 145 calories, which is slightly more than Bud Light at 110. So if you're trying to cut calories and carbs, stick with the light version because the antioxidants in regular are too low to justify.
