London: Have you ever wondered why drinking white wine can make some women upset and depressed?
According to experts, this could be due to the fact that white wine contains more sulphites than red wine.
Sulphites have been linked to ‘drinking blues,’ depression, and a variety of other ailments ranging from allergies to headaches.
While sulphites are naturally present in grapes, small amounts of sulphur are added prior to fermentation as a preservative to maintain freshness and eliminate unwanted yeasts and bacteria, according to the Daily Mail.
According to the Food Standards Agency in the United Kingdom, white wine contains up to ten times the sugar of red wine.
Women also react more quickly to alcohol,’ discovered Sarah Jarvis, medical adviser to the charity Drinkaware, adding that this could explain why women have worse hangovers.
According to researchers at the University of Missouri – Columbia, women not only became drunk faster, but their hangover symptoms were more severe as well – despite drinking the same amount as men.
