SHARE Food blogger wants to know what's in her beer

A food blogger has launched a campaign to get Anheuser-Busch and MillerCoors to disclose the ingredients that go into their beers.

Vani Hari, creator of FoodBabe.com, on Wednesday started an online petition drive to pressure the two big beer makers to at least make lists of ingredients available online.

“It’s shocking that these companies don’t disclose their ingredients, but it’s even more shocking that millions of us – including my own husband – continue to blindly drink these beers without knowing what’s actually in them,” Hari says in a blog post about her petition drive.

Miller, in a statement sent to USA Today, said it’s getting there. “MillerCoors led all alcohol beverage companies with a voluntary nutritional labeling panel earlier this year starting with our Miller64 brand. We value transparency and we will strongly consider the request for putting more ingredient information online,” said the statement from spokesman Pete Marino.

But Hari rejects that. “Nutritional labeling is distinctly different than ingredient disclosure, and it is not enough transparency for consumers to avoid additives like the corn syrup they use in many of their beers,” she says.
