White Claw’s New Non-Alcoholic Flavors Review: Even Better Than The Hard Seltzers –

Mostly, yes. But there are also some other ingredients worth mentioning. The White Claw non-alcoholic seltzers pack only 15 calories per 12-ounce can, which is a significant drop from the 100 calories per can of the original Hard Seltzer. Both the original and non-alcoholic seltzers have two grams of sugar. However, the original contains only two grams of carbohydrates in total, whereas the non-alcoholic seltzer has five grams in total. The most significant nutritional difference, other than the lack of alcohol, is that the alcohol-free seltzer includes electrolytes, which have the potential to keep you more hydrated than you might otherwise. That explains the spike in sodium from about 20 mg in the Hard Seltzer to 65 mg in the non-alcoholic versions. For comparison, a 12-ounce serving of Gatorade has 160 mg of sodium and 22 grams of total carbohydrates. 

The ingredients list includes purified carbonated water, natural flavors, cane sugar, citric acid, electrolytes (sea salt, monopotassium phosphate, sodium citrate), and concentrated juice (which varies depending on flavor). While the electrolytes are an unexpected addition to the seltzers, they aren’t unwelcome and seem to provide a more rounded flavor to the drinks. I’ll also gladly take the 15 calories, knowing I’m getting a beverage that uses actual cane sugar. White Claw has also created a proprietary plant-based sweetener that likely helps boost the sweetness and overall flavor of the drinks but doesn’t leave behind an overwhelmingly synthetic flavor.
