Learning About Shochu:
Shochu has a moderate number of calories!

Shochu is the first fermented and distilled. In this process, many extracts and minerals have been eliminated with the exception of certain components such as fragrance and flavor. This is why shochu contains smaller amounts of sugar and fewer calories than other liquors.

The high alcohol content of shochu makes many people believe it is high in calories. However, shochu calories are absorbed directly as a source of energy and therefore do not become a burden on the body.
